Lakers superstar LeBronJames is among the pro athletes shocked by comments that NFL QB DrewBrees made

"You literally still don't understand why Kap was kneeling on one knee?" the Lakers superstar responded, referring to former 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.

The Saints star QB said in an interview with Yahoo News that, even after the killing of George Floyd and worldwide protests which resulted, he was still against any football player kneeling during the national anthem. “I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country," Brees said.

The Los Angeles Lakers superstar who keep our land free. My father-in-law was one of those men who fought as well for this country. I asked him question about it and thank him all the time for his commitment. He never found Kap peaceful protest offensive because he and I both know what’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong! God bless you."

People need to stop putting words in his mouth. It’s not that he doesn’t support BLM. He simply loves and respects his country. I support BLM but I shouldn’t have to feel like it’s one or the other. You should love your country. Work to make it better. Productively.

His wife apologized today. Only five more apologies to go!

.drewbrees doesn’t get it. .TheEllenShow you need to help your boy...you have his jersey hanging in your studio. Don’t support anyone who doesn’t support BLM

LeBron has the intelligence of gnat


LeBron James is nothing but a spoiled brat punk. The sooner he retires and takes his whiny butt out of the public sphere, the better.

My thoughts on this... the wrong NBA player was in a helicopter.

And to think the left is tolerant... no support for difference in thoughts. if it was a Dem complaining we all have to approve of what said to be “woke”. What Drew said originally was not bad.

a portrait of straight up bullying. when you oppress free opinion you oppress everybody.

Forced to apologize for saying something most Americans agree with. Ridiculous “I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country.”

So when people criticize Kaepernick7 for disrespecting the flag there’s outrage and it’s racism. But when drew brees has an opinion on not disrespecting the flag, it’s allowed to be criticized and he’s made to issue an apology? KingJames is a racist.

he’s gross

drewbrees next.

It's too late. There's no putting that genie back in the bottle.

If drewbrees really means his apology, drewbrees should tag and direct his newly found wisdom on the issue towards realDonaldTrump .

Blue Lives Matter.... Black Lives Matter ONLY when they are Looting and Stealing from their Neighbors. 70% of them have NO IDEA who George Floyd is or How he Died... Think about that... you Black Racist Thugs..... Stand for the Flag

nope does not cut it retire say goodbye

LeBron James is a jerk.

Bralalalala knows a lot about police bigotry as trans...never a criminal conviction or even trial just a lot of false arrests. George Floyd however was the real deal. His police relationships developed over armed robbery,counterfeit money,fentanyl..he deserves recognition!Racism!

sorry, that cat is out of the bag.

Is, Im sorry your were triggered, an apology?

On Thursday, and every day hereafter, we will know which statement he actually meant.

I get it! White people shut your mouths and open your wallets. Your not allowed an opinion. Black people keep spreading the word and trashing everyone in your way. White people You don’t mean shit, now come give us money . I think I finally have it figured out.

Not the first time LeBron has been stunned by something intelligent.

White + Privilege = STUPIDITY

Apologizing for his OPINION! Wow! Giving power to those folks is sooo very wrong! Sorry you felt the need to do that!

“Stunned”? He literally said he WASN’T shocked...🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

He got in trouble with his boss and sponsors. He meant every word he said in his first statement, not the PR one someone helped him write.

Bent the knee...


Apologizing for not wanting to disrespect the flag? 🤔🤔🤔 I guess this suffices as the outrageous kneeling and apologizing that’s being demanded from non-blacks...


be like Trump, never apologise to leftists

Lebron is an idiot. Brees is right.

so many 'lengthy apologies' this week, eh 🙄

Apologize for what? Jesus Christ.

another day...

Social bullying at its finest


Stop Apologizing,You did nothing wrong !

I care not about Drew Brees opinion if he is not apart of the solution. If he truly cared he would have went to the military he taking upon himself to speak for and asked them what they would have been comfortable with. Oh Kap already did that. Oops

I was never a fan of Drew Brees.

James you suck...you're against America plain to see... LEAVE!!! you denigrate, slander, and attack those that would dare revere the outright privilege we have been given by the soldiers who fought and fight for our way of life....really you should split...find a new free world

If a football player had kneeled for gun rights instead of black rights this would not even be an issue.

Don't buy leBron crap. Boycott lebron

So, my question is, does DrewBrees get a one time pass for his statement or is he canceled? 🚔blm

ShebaTurk Hey Sheba What about the blacks being killed by blacks in Chicago,New Orleans,Baltimore Does that count or only when whites kill blacks

ShebaTurk Maybe check Black Lives in Chicago ? Nah that black on black crime don’t count Idiots!!

LeBron is one of the most privileged people ever to walk this earth and he spends all of his free time whining. What a loser

Drew Brees is right: 'I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag' Kaepernick wore a tee shirt in support of Fidel Castro and wore 'Cops are Pigs' socks. That's why no team will employ him. ColinKaepernick DrewBrees NFL

Who here cares about the innocent black people gunned down constantly in Chicago by gang members? Who takes a knee for them? 81 killed over Memorial day weekend. Where's Kaepernick? Crickets crickets.

Makes sense, he's not shocked by the amount of backs killed on any given weekend in Chicago but a comment shocks him? Hypocrites

ShebaTurk Why because he's not one if Lebrons puppets and actually stands for what he believes in? istandwithdrewbrees

Yes. You are still allowed to have an opinion in this country. It is shocking. Some people don’t want to kneel during the national anthem. Wow.

LeBron James go back to China. You support and condone their oppression for the almighty dollar.

Not surprising

After 12 year's, I'm chucking dueces to this fool. I'm so astonished by his lack of forethought & ignorance.✌

Disgusting. This is a violent statement.

He’s NOT surprised..maybe actually read what he WROTE. Serioulsy, this is not hard.

Why are they shocked about someone taking a stand. God forbid he disagrees with the vehicle they use to take a so called stand. If they don’t understand that people can have a difference of opinion then they’re the ones that don’t get it.

All of Drew’s brain is in his neck

drewbrees KingJames he knows why Kap did it. He just doesn't care and saying its about the flag makes it easier. The violations of civil rights disrespects the flag and constitution but that doesn't matter.

Another teaching opportunity.

To be shocked by Brees' comments, it’s because you don’t know who or what the devil is. We can learn much from the Hon. Elijah Muhammad and Min. Farrakhan.

Lebron is so fine

BarbaraFreethy Shocked? Really? Why?

Got it. So what you are saying is that you support Kaepernick’s right to express his opinion but you don’t support Brees’ right to express his. Got it.

Disrespect the American flag!?!?! What he was kneeling to protest is far more shameful to the American flag and the whole world sees that except for those drinking the trump koolaid. Putting a pedophile racist in the White House was your first mistake and one you will pay for.

I don't know why we should ever be surprised at what athletes say. I like to think they're not assholes, but when they prove they are, I don't find it hard to believe.

Stunned why? Because Leftbron realizes this is America and he has the right to feel the way he does.

Petty...maybe since he’s a black role model he can spend time being a leader in his community- you know, to improve it- rather than tweet about kneeling...

“He was subsequently blackballed from the league.” Says who

he is not saying there isnt a problem. he is saying sports arena during an them is not the place to protest. Its not hard to figure out. Try respecting other peoples views.

Shocked? No! What’s shocking is that people are not offended by kneeling during the anthem. It’s shitting on your country! These same people would wipe their ass with the flag and say it was to protest us not having enough toilet paper. Such bs! KingJames drewbrees

drewbrees story is gonna blow up over night. Hey drewBrees RECONSIDER RETIREMENT - it'll give you time to learn about systemic racism, police brutality and murders. nfl Saints SeanPayton drewbreesisoverparty nfl LeBronJames
