Candace Owens Blaims LeBron James for the LA Hatred and Shooting


Conservative author and activist Candace Owens is blaming ‘pea-brained’ LeBron James for stirring up hatred that led to the shooting of two Los Angeles sheriffs on Saturday.

With the two deputies fighting for their lives following the ambush, Candace Owens, 31, said the outspoken basketball superstar bore responsibility for the attack.

‘Why does this happen? Because pea-brained celebrities that are idolized like @KingJames tell young black men that they are “literally being hunted”,’ she said, referencing a May 6 tweet in which James responded to the murder of Ahmaud Arbery.

Outside St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood where the injured were being treated Saturday night, a small crowd, including some apparent demonstrators, gathered. Witnesses say members in the group were chanting anti-law enforcement slogans and at one point tried to get inside the hospital.

Shortly after that, a local public radio reporter was pinned to the ground by deputies and arrested.

President Donald Trump and Compton Mayor Aja Brown were among the first public officials to come forward with reaction statements to the shooting on social media.
