Mark it down on your calenders - October 20 is officially LeBron James "Hater Day."
James showed his sensitive side today on Twitter, deciding to vent to his Twitter followers and ReTweet some of the most hateful tweets that have been directed towards him since he opened his Twitter account back in July.
According to LeBron, "Everybody thinks [being a professional athlete] is a bed of roses and its not."
Here are some highlight's from "LeBron James Hater Day" on Twitter, courtesy of Barstool Sports:
One person tweeted that James is a "Big nosed big lipped bug eyed (racial slur)."
Another tweeted "Hey good game last night, too bad you're a fraud BITCH."
LeBron James has over 900,000 followers on Twitter, and he made a "decision" this summer that captivated America and changed the landscape of the NBA, although the majority (sans Heat fans) think it was the wrong one. Â He didn't even give the Cavs notice prior to "The Decision" that he wasn't coming back.
For someone as absurdly rich and as consistently in the spotlight as LeBron James is, it's hard to imagine how he can expect to feel sympathy for these tweets. Â Everybody on the planet has to deal with hateful remarks and negative comments - just because LeBron James is LeBron James, that doesn't mean people have to care more.
Until he understands that it's the sun, not King James, which the planets rotate around, it's going to be near impossible for him to regain the respect he lost this summer.
