The Los Angeles Protective League has sent a letter to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, requesting a formal investigation into a tweet sent out by LeBron James.
After former officer Derek Chauvin was convicted in the death of George Floyd, a Columbus police officer shot and killed 16-year-old Bryant. James posted a tweet with the officer’s picture and wrote, “You’re next #ACCOUNTABILITY.” He then deleted the tweet.
The Los Angeles Police Department Union recently responded to James' comments by asking the NBA to launch an investigation into the basketball player.
We formally ask that you conduct an investigation into Mr. James' social media post to determine if he violated any policies of the National Basketball Association, and if so, to hold Mr. James accountable for any violations of those policies. - LAPD Union
