LA Lakers star LeBron James found himself in a bit of controversy this weekend by quoting 21 Savage.
On Saturday, James posted a selfie r Instagram featuring lyrics from rapper 21 Savage’s “asmr” song from the new album i am﹥i was which references keeping “kosher” and “getting that Jewish money.”
Here are the song lyrics.
“We been gettin’ that Jewish money, everything is Kosher (On God) Bought myself a ‘Ventador and bought my bitch a Roadster (Straight up) Drive my Lambo to the store, I’ma wave with my doors.
And here is LeBron’s IG post.
LeBron’s post drew the ire of Entourage creator Doug Ellin who called out James for using an ” anti Semitic” stereotype to describe Jewish people.
This is an anti Semitic stereotype used for centuries to foster hatred against Jews. @kingjames the nazis spread this nonsense everywhere #wordshavemeaning posting words to 44 million people has a ton of meaning.
Sports reporter Darren Rovell also went on to criticize LeBron over his post.
Ellin and Rovell immediately got pushback from NBA fans who didn’t think LeBron’s IG post was a big deal.
