    LeBron James Slams Laura Ingraham for Drew Brees Support After Telling Him to 'Shut Up and Dribble'

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]LeBron James is calling out Fox News personality Laura Ingraham for once saying athletes should keep their political opinions to themselves after her recent defense of Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

    Brees soon issued an apology, admitting his statements "lacked awareness and any type of compassion."

    "In an attempt to talk about respect, unity, and solidarity centered around the American flag and the national anthem, I made comments that were insensitive and completely missed the mark on the issues we are facing right now as a country," he wrote in an Instagram post on Thursday.

    "I recognize that I should do less talking and more listening...and when the black community is talking about their pain, we all need to listen," he continued. "For that, I am very sorry and I ask your forgiveness."

    He also released another apology in the form of a video on Instagram.


    Ingraham then responded to James calling her out, saying on Thursday that she believes "we are all children of God, regardless of our racial or political differences and therefore must be treated equally."

    "Every American, every American has the God-given right to speak his mind on any issue," she said. "I think in order to heal and shed light on gross injustices, our country needs more dialogue, not less. And we need more respect, less retribution."

    The Fox host added, "This is a moment when we should be listening and learning. All of us."

    In February 2018, Ingraham also defended her comments at the time, saying there was "no racial intent in my remarks."

    So, if your views don't agree with mine, keep your thoughts to yourself.
    If you agree with me, you're entitled to your opinion.

    Agree about Ingraham, obviously, but did I just read a genuine apology from Drew Brees? An "I'm an asshole, I'm sorry, Please forgive me," honest to God apology?

    Brees needs to retire. He has lost the locker room.

    The Bills' rookie QB Jake Fromm had to apologize for some of his previous posts. He believed that guns should only belong to "elite white people." He's not going to get fired. He apologized....he would come across as more honest if he said, "I said what I said."

    Laura Ingraham is a straight up cunt. Not to mention, she's a bitter, ugly, nasty biddie. I think when you're that despicable of a human being, the ugly just oozes out of you.

    "How is that my fault" - more power to Ashley. I bet she'll be getting slammed by people accusing her of "ruining" his career, not making him take responsibility for being a racist piece of shit.
