See Reactions after LeBron James' Son Bronny Sparks Debate for Allegedly Dating a White Girl
High school basketball player LeBron “Bronny” James, Jr., the son of legendary basketball star LeBron James, stirred up debate online after reports of him dating a white girl surfaced.
On Twitter, fans passionately discussed the pros and cons of LeBron James' son, Bronny James having a romantic relationship with a white girl. One user said:
“There are fully grown adults with real-life adult problems on this website that are concerned about who a 15 year old is dating. Leave Bronny James alone you weirdos.”
Another expressed disbelief that the young athlete is dating a white girl, even jumping to the conclusion that he does not like Black girls.
On the other hand, a user came to Bronny's defense, stating that Americans truly have some serious race issues because of the fuss over the young athlete dating a white girl.
Another Twitter user chimed in saying that it made no sense to him that people are upset over the idea of the famous teenager dating a white girl on the one hand, and express worry about racial discrimination on the other hand.
Another netizen agreed, saying that one cannot talk about equality and get frustrated when Bronny dates a white girl. The user wrote: "Love is love and has no discrimination."
The online debate was triggered by a video posted on TikTok by a user that goes by the name "itspeytonbabyy." The girl in the video was sharing a playful moment with the rising basketball star.
Early this year, LeBron James called out a fan for throwing an object at his son during a basketball game in Massachusetts.
Appearing to be comfortable around each other, the girl who was wearing a white top, tapped on a lively song and fiddled Bronny's face. Fans were then quick to assume she is Bronny's girlfriend.
But neither of them has confirmed nor denied the rumor. As the pair keeps mum on the real score between them, speculations continue to swirl on Twitter, with fans debating mostly from the perspective of race.
The massive attention Bronny has drawn over the video comes with no surprise, considering that he has been closely followed by the media and fans alike at such a young age.
Bronny, who was born on October 6, 2004, is following in his iconic father's footsteps as he strives hard to enter the NBA someday.
The 15-year-old is ranked 24th in ESPN's class of 2023 basketball recruit rankings. Also an Esports gamer, he recently joined Esports and the gaming group FaZe Clan.
James is quite protective of his son who attends high school at a private school near Los Angeles. Early this year, the basketball star called out a fan for throwing an object at his son during a basketball game in Massachusetts.
Bronny was getting ready to inbound the ball when the object hit him in the back. James expressed his frustration online, saying that the act was disrespectful.
The massively successful athlete shares Bronny with his wife of seven years, Savannah James. The couple recently marked their 7th wedding anniversary with sweet tributes for each other on social media.
