Hey Lebron, Boston is not racist. We just hate your dumb ass

Some even took a jab at James’ ownership of Fenway Sports Group, the parent company of the Red Sox.
Lebron is part of Fenway Sports group. Sorry, but if they don’t respond to this we have serious problems. It’s unacceptable https://t.co/f9BtY30Vbk

Another user tweeted: “If LeBron truly thinks Boston fans are “racist as f— he should immediately divest his Fenway Sports Group ownership – sorry”
Meanwhile, the words come after he said in 2017 during the postseason that he did not recall being a victim of racism.
2017 LeBron: “I’ve heard a couple athletes say that you expect that when you go to Boston … I can’t recall ever hearing something that was racism toward me.”

“I’ve heard a couple of athletes say that you expect that when you go Boston,” James said.
He added, “I’ve been to Boston. I’ve played in Boston a lot. I can’t recall hearing something that was racism towards me.”
The NBA schedule is expected to be released in the next month.
If he plays in Boston next year, the perception from the fans will be interesting.
