Ted Cruz Rips LeBron James For Rushing To Judge: “Grossly irresponsible message for LeBron James to send out”

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas ripped NBA star LeBron James last night on “Fox News Primetime” calling the NBA star’s tweet about Columbus police, “grossly irresponsible.” James has since deleted the tweet and echoed Ted’s call to gather all the facts before rushing to judge.

“The left consistently goes after, attacks and demonizes police officers often before the facts are known, often before there is any evidence of what happened,” Cruz said, “but their immediate reaction, whenever there is an incident, is that police officers is in the wrong.”

“And in this instance, ‘you’re next’ could certainly be interpreted by some, even, as a call for violence. I think it was a grossly irresponsible message for LeBron James to send out.”

“By any measure, it was a volatile situation,” the senator said. “The woman who was killed was wielding a knife, was violent, appeared to be threatening the [lives] of others. It may well be, on an investigation, that this police officer saved the life of a potential victim of a knife attack and we shouldn’t jump to conclusions.”

“The facts should be determined, but the left doesn’t care about the facts, they care about demonizing and attacking law enforcement and I think it’s wrong,” he said.

James deleted the tweet saying:

“I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate -This isn’t about one officer.  

“it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY.

“ANGER does any of us any good and that includes myself! 

“Gathering all the facts and educating does though! 

“My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!”
