LAPD Officer Deon Joseph Condemns LeBron James’ Tweet About Ma’Khia

LeBron James have been under heavy criticism following his controversial tweet on Ma’Khia Bryant. “You’re Next #Accountability” the NBA star wrote alongside a photo of Nicholas Reardon, the Columbus Ohio police officer who shot and killed Ma’Khia Bryant.
