Kobe Bryant gave a Befitting response to Trump’s attack at Black Athletes on Twitter
President Donald Trump’s comment on black athletes at Alabama rally received a massive backlash. His insensitive remark on professional athletes this weekend is raging Saturday and it has drawn very public as well as pointed rebukes from across the sports landscape.
Even the biggest names and personalities are denying to remain on the sidelines. Several Hollywood actors have openly condemned Trump’s remarks.
LeBron James, a Basketball superstar, displayed support for fellow NBA All-Star Stephen Curry, whom the President singled-out in a Twitter diatribe for “hesitating” on an invitation to the White House.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL Players Union President DeMaurice Smith both issued rebuke against President Trump for his remarks made to an Alabama Rally calling NFL players who protested the national anthem “sons of bitches.”
And now Los Angeles Lakers Legend Kobe Bryant has stepped into the fray. The recently retired five-time NBA champion doesn’t speak out often, but when he does, he hits his targets.
The player once known as the “Black Mamba” for his deadly assaults on opposing defences tweeted a scathing attack on the President that’s sure to get his attention.
Trump at the rally said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired. He’s fired. You know, some owner is going to do that. He’s going to say, ‘That guy that disrespects our flag, he’s fired.’ And that owner, they don’t know it [but] they’ll be the most popular person in this country.”
