Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss shared a disgusting and NSFW letter from a fan who told her to join Kobe Bryant in hell.

Warning, the letter is very graphic:

After much thought, I decided to share this letter I received on Monday so that everyone can see the hate is real and living out there. This is happening in our world TODAY. Its real and it exists. To Joe: Did sending this letter make you feel better?  Really all you did was waste your time, and energy and your postage stamp. (But thank you for including your return home address) Why don’t you look in the mirror and see your ugliness because I refuse to. I have received letters like this over the years. The advice I always got? “Ignore it.” I did. But not anymore. On this day, Juneteenth, I ask my white friends to join together, acknowledge the racism that exists in our country and around the world, and pledge to stop ignoring it. We all must do better. #juneteenth #hatewontwin

The Lakers, as well as a bunch of teams in the NBA, gave the organization Friday off in order to observe Juneteenth, the holiday that commemorates the end of slavery. Friday marks 155 years since all enslaved people in Texas were emancipated — the last of the Confederate states to do so — on June 19, 1865.

As part of her message, Buss implored her white friends to help stop racism:

“On this day, Juneteenth, I ask my white friends to join together, acknowledge the racism that exists in our country and around the world, and pledge to stop ignoring it. We all must do better,” the Lakers owner wrote on Instagram.

What this letter shows is that racism is still alive and well in the year 2020. It took a lot of courage for Jeanie Buss to share this message.

Odds are all the African American players on the Lakers will be reaching out to Buss to thank her for her support and bravery.

The Lakers are among the 22 teams scheduled to partake in games at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Led by superstars LeBron James and Anthony Davis, Los Angeles had the best record in the West before the season was suspended in March.
