LeBron is known as someone who often comments and shares his opinion on social and racial issues in the US. This is a topic that obviously he deeply cares about, and even though he has no real influence here except stating his opinion on the matter. It's up to the Twitter employees and Elon Musk himself to figure out how they can best handle this sudden surge of inappropriate words that are now being said on the platform.
