LeBron was supported by Wojnarowski, suspended for insulting the Senator
Los Angeles Lakers light forward LeBron James has backed ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski, who was suspended for insulting a us Senator.
“#Sobolewski”, — wrote in his “Twitter” LeBron James.
We will remind, earlier Wojnarowski got into an unpleasant scandal, allowing himself to swear obscenities at the address of Senator from Missouri Josh Hawley. He suggested that the NBA expand the list of alternative phrases that can be put on the jerseys of basketball players instead of last names, and also accused the League of ties with China. Hawley put forward several options of his own: “return to the dream”, “support our troops”, “God bless America”.
Hawley also stressed that the NBA has crossed all imaginable boundaries of politicizing the process. After a while, Hawley posted a screenshot of the response sent by the famous columnist Adrian Wojnarowski. He didn’t choose his words. Wojnarowski later issued a public apology, posting a corresponding post on Twitter, but ESPN decided to suspend the journalist indefinitely.
