AceShowbiz - The reason why LeBron James got two fans kicked out during his team's overtime victory in a game against the Indiana Pacers has been revealed. The Los Angeles Lakers star was furious after one of the individuals allegedly wished his son "dies in a car wreck."
In the Wednesday night, November 24 game, the 36-year-old NBA player requested referee Rodney Mott and Gainbridge Fieldhouse officials to kick out one man and a woman sitting courtside. The removal occurred after the female fan reportedly told the athlete, "I hope Bronny dies in a car wreck."
Her male companion, on the other hand, allegedly made "animalistic noises and other incendiary remarks" about the 17-year-old. LeBron, however, has yet to confirm the story.
In a clip surfacing online, LeBron was seen pointing at the two fans before the arena officials escorted them to leave the court. Though so, the individuals seemed unapologetic as the woman made a pouting face and crybaby motion in LeBron's direction while making her way out. The other one was laughing while walking behind her.
LeBron described their actions as "outside the line with obscene gestures and words." He further detailed after the game, "When obscene gestures and language come into it, (it) can't be tolerated... There's a difference from cheering for your team and not wanting the other team to win and things I would never say to a fan and they shouldn't say to me."
In the wake of the incident, LeBron found himself being showered with support by fans on Twitter. One person in particular wrote, "People today are just too rude and obnoxious …. I'm glad they were removed from the game… the only way to stop such hatred is to simply not tolerate it." Another user added, "It's so hurting to say this to Lebron….my sincere prayers for him and his family."
