Appearing on VICE TV’s “Cari & Jemele: Stick To Sports” NBA star LeBron James said he will actively campaign for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
“We are at a time where we need change,” LeBron said while on the program.
He added “In order for change, it’s all about leadership — and leadership starts at the top.”
This is not the first time LeBron has lended out his star power for Democrats.
LeBron also campaigned for Hillary Clinton and joined her on stage in Ohio.
Lebron appears to be getting more and more “political” as of late.
Tuesday, Lebron and several of his teammates wore fake “MAGA” styled hats in order to make a social justice statement for Breonna Taylor and the BLM movement.
James explained after the game “Just something we continue to put our foot on the gas, continue to pressure. You know the situation that is going on in Louisville, Kentucky. An innocent woman being killed, by the name of Breonna Taylor. A woman who had a bright future and her life was taken away from her. There’s been no arrests. There’s been no justice. Not only for her, but for her family. We continue to shed light on that situation.”
The “Make America Great Again” message is changed in the hat to read “Make America Arrest Cops Who Killed Breonna.”
“GREAT AGAIN” is crossed out.
On Instagram Lebron wrote ““By Any Means‼️ Lets Get It 👑 #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor❤️✊🏾.””
The Lakers posted a photo of Lebron and other players wearing the hat on their Twitter page.
