Walking into his Tuesday, August 18, game against the Portland Trail Blazers, LeBron James wore a hat that has many Trump supporters up in arms.

The hat, which used the distinctive style of President Trump's "Make America Great Again" caps, had the Republican slogan crossed off.

Written below it was a new message:

"Make America arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor."

On Twitter, Trump supporters were outraged that a basketball player would dare to voice his opinion on politics.



Many conservatives claimed they were done watching James play basketball.



Others wished the worst would befall James because he thought the killers of Breonna Taylor should face justice.



In moments like these, conservatives are always eager to insist that athletes should play their sports and shut their mouths.



Of course, it's unlikely LeBron James, one of the greatest players of all time, cares about random Twitter users opinions on his hat.


LeBron James may have lost some of his old conservative fans, but he's made just as many new ones among those who appreciate a star using his voice for what he sees as right.
