Lakers star LeBron James gets blasted on Twitter for allegedly ‘assaulting’ fan at Usher’s concert

Lakers, LeBron James, Usher

A clip of Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James shoving a fan during an Usher concert is currently making its rounds on social media. Unsurprisingly, The King has been bashed with a ton of criticism for allegedly “assaulting” the fan.

Before you jump to any conclusions, here’s a look at the incident (h/t Ahn Fire Digital and Lakers Daily on Twitter):

Well, there’s no denying that LeBron shoved the fan and it looks like he had a few unsavory words for him as well. However, “assault” might be too big an accusation for this particular incident:

A lot of other fans on the mean streets of Twitter were not particularly happy with LeBron’s actions:

The incident drew contradicting views, however, with others saying that LeBron just did what he had to do as the random fan invaded his personal space:


If you look at the comments section, though, the general disposition is that the Lakers star didn’t do anything wrong here. The fan was literally rushing to him and it looks like all LeBron did was protect himself and his wife.

Then again, this is LeBron James we’re talking about here so it isn’t surprising that some folks are straight-up hating on him for his actions here. I guess this could serve as a reminder that LeBron is a human being, too, and that he should be treated as such.

The King was clearly not in a jovial mood, though. Maybe he didn’t like that particular Usher song?
