Michelle Beadle Blasts LeBron James Over COVID-19 Meme: "Stop Asking What They Think About The World. Stop Asking Them About Their Medical Opinion."

Michelle Beadle Blasts LeBron James Over COVID-19 Meme: "Stop Asking What They Think About The World. Stop Asking Them About Their Medical Opinion."

LeBron James made a lot of noise last week after he shared a curious meme about COVID-19. The Los Angeles Lakers posted the famous Spider-Man meme to talk about the disease that has bullied the world for almost two years, asking people to explain the difference between the flu, a cold, and COVID-19. 

This post was met with humor by some people, and others didn't like what LeBron did, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who sent a big message to The King, urging him to be more responsible about those things

LeBron replied by saying he wasn't joking and genuinely asked for help, avoiding any bad comment he could have said to Kareem. 

Yet, the 6x NBA champion isn't the only one blasting the Laker. The Athletic's Michelle Beadle sent a message to LeBron, too, asking people not to ask his opinion about anything going on in the world. 

In her most recent podcast episode of The Athletic's "What did I miss?" Beadle had some things to say about LeBron and how people perceive him.

“These are those times where we need to stop asking these guys anything important," Beadle said, via Sportskeeda. "Stop asking what they think about the world. Stop asking them about their medical opinion. Stop asking them about China.

“You’re never going to get an answer you want to hear. Why? That’s not their forte. You want to know something about basketball? Go ask them that.”

Beadle and James have a history together. Recently, the former ESPN host claimed LeBron tried to get her fired from the worldwide leader in sports on several occasions. Michelle said her jokes about the infamous segment 'The Decision' earned him the disapproval of LeBron. 

Now she's working on different platforms, sharp as usual, saying whatever she likes without the pressure of James watching him from the shadows. She has valid points in her remarks. LeBron is not a doctor and he was looking for answers like the rest of us. Still, that's the main reason why we shouldn't trust him on these issues.
