We know that LeBron James stopped supporting his favorite team, the Dallas Cowboys, because of Jerry Jones’ kneeling Anthem stance. However, apparently James has no problem encouraging those accused of sexually assaulting or harassing two dozen women.
On Sunday, as Deshaun Watson and the Browns beat COs in Washington, James sent a congratulatory tweet to Watson, letting the QB know he was “getting his groove back.”
Yes Mr D Watson!! Another. This boy who finds his rhythm! #Brunettes

The shockingly tone-deaf tweet from the nation’s leading jock preacher didn’t escape the notice of fans, who were quick to chastise James for his post.
You stopped being a cowboys fan because of Jerry Jones, but now actively support Deshaun Watson!?

My son is a big fan of you… he won’t support you anymore after this tweet. Supporting Watson is not a message you should send to young people. What’s the next thing you’re going to tweet about R Kelly?

The moral compass of professional sports cheering on its favorite sexual deviant

So moral of the story, the next time you hear LeBron James lecture about women’s rights, you should give him as much attention/credit as you give him when he talks about the 1st Amendment, 2nd amendment, police, China, Nike, etc…
