LeBron James called out Elon Musk for purchasing Twitter.com by saying Musk needed to take it seriously.
“I dont know Elon Musk and, [to be honest], I could care less who owns twitter,” LeBron wrote. “But I will say that if this is true, I hope he and his people take this very seriously because this is scary AF. So many damn unfit people saying hate speech is free speech.”
LeBron reacted to a Washington Post report that use of the n-word has increased 500% since Musk became owner on Wednesday.
The Washington Post claimed “bad actors” were “trying to test the limits” on Twitter since the bird was freed.
However, Musk tweeted that no changes have been made “to Twitter’s content moderation policies.”
To be super clear, we have not yet made any changes to Twitter’s content moderation policies https://t.co/k4guTsXOIu

The Los Angeles Laker who has yet to win a game this season was roasted by Twitter users who reminded him that he threatened a police officer who defended a Black woman who was being attacked. “YOU’RE NEXT,” LeBron tweeted at the time.
LeBron only wants to hear the N-word in rap music. It's a term of endearment in rap. When LeBron dropped the N-word on HBO's The Shop it was a good thing. But now it's scary AF. Gotcha. https://t.co/eP4ICz2QBq
