Twitter was not happy with LeBron.

Tory Lanez came through with a 20-track new album for his fans on Friday, called Sorry 4 What. The album has been getting praise from his supporters on social media, although there are plenty of people swearing off the album due to his ongoing shooting case against Megan Thee Stallion.

One person who is looking past that and enjoying the music is none other than LeBron James. LeBron has always been an avid rap listener, and on Friday, he replied to CuffsTheLegend on Twitter with some praise for the album. As you can see, he wrote "He never misses. That boy talented as hell man! Bangers for days!!"

Twitter was not happy with LeBron's response, as they felt like it was a betrayal of some of the things he has said in the past regarding the need to protect black women. While Tory's case against Meg has yet to be settled or resolved, there are a lot of people who see Tory as guilty, which has many calling LeBron a hypocrite.

In the tweets down below, you can see that Bron has been the subject of relentless criticism that doesn't seem to be dying down. "What a thing to wake up and see. What a betrayal to all the Black Women who have had Lebron's back. Wow. I'm actually speechless," one person wrote. "This tweet is a DECISION OF SUPPORT for a man who shot Megan multiple times. The lack of value we are shown as Black Women has no depths."

Other fans have stood up for LeBron, claiming that Twitter is not real life and that outside of the app, no one actually cares about him listening to Tory Lanez. Either way, people are upset right now, and Twitter is giving everyone a platform to voice that displeasure.
