LeBron James is father of a little girl now, so it was only apropos for him to praise the Black Girl Magic that’s Simone Biles and Simone Manuel, after their gold medal wins.
The NBA star posted a congratulatory post on Instagram and Facebook, letting the ladies know his daughter was watching with him:
But of course no good deed goes uncriticized, especially when you’re a black person praising another black person. Some white people took issue with the fact that James praised black women:
So many white tears. Too many to even post about.
It’s crazy how white people are happy when black people cheer on white people, but god forbid we cheer for our own.
