LeBron James' son LeBron "Bronny" James Jr. went viral after he took his longtime girlfriend to their high school prom.
Kids who follow Bronny on social media know who his girlfriend is. But Black Twitter expressed surprised that she was from the other side of the tracks.
Those who see no color slammed Black Twitter's racist hypocrisy.

Just because people are racist and they think Bronny should go to prom someone his color which is stupid, it's his date and his day to have fun and people are just trying to ruin it.

In other news, sports analysts say LeBron, 37, and Bronny, 17, will become the first father-son duo to play together in the NBA. Other famous father-son duos have played in the NBA, but not for the same team.
Bronny is LeBron's eldest son. He is a sophomore at the exclusive Sierra Canyon School in the Los Angeles area. He is a 6-ft-3 point guard who averaged about 4.1 points per game in his sophomore season.
247Sports.com dropped Bronny from 27 to 52 in its prospect rankings at the start of his junior year - after he was ranked the best player in the class of 2023 while in middle school.
NCAA Division 1 schools showing interest in Bronny include Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, North Carolina, and UCLA. But his father has bigger plans for him.
LeBron wants Bronny to play in the NBA with him. So he's using himself as leverage — by promising to play for any NBA team that drafts his favorite son.
