LeBron James‘ 17-year-old son Bronny has been receiving disgusting racist backlash online for taking a white girl to his high school prom. The future NBA’er recently posted images of himself and his date, Peyton Gelfuso online arriving at the event in a $326,000 custom Mercedes GT sports car.
After sharing the images the eldest son of the Los Angeles Laker was met with racist criticism from trolls who made cruel comments about his choice of companion for the evening.
“Not a light skinned woman already,” wrote one person, while another added, “Welp, on the bright side, LeBron has more kids. Maybe they will do better.”
“That girl is whiter than white bruh,” another wrote.
A fourth tweet read, “Should’ve got a black queen like his dad,” with an angry face emoji.
“Lost another black king to a money hungry white girl,” a different Twitter user tweeted. “Bron gotta do better SMH.”
While the vile and racist comments come not even a week after a racially charged mass shooting took place in Buffalo, NY, that claimed the lives of 10 innocent black americans, other people defended the teenagers choice.
One comment read, “Bronny James really has grown adults in shambles over the fact he took a white girl to prom in 2022.”
“Anyone that’s mad at Bronny’s prom date, you are part of the problem in today’s society,” agreed someone else. “MFs who are happy with their lives don’t make assumptions about teenagers based on the skin color of their dates,” said someone else.
We couldn’t agree more!
