LeBron recently responded to Fox News host Laura Ingraham‘s comments about the star basketball player when she told him to “shut up and dribble” instead of speaking out about issues he cares about.
“I will not just shut up and dribble,” LeBron said (via ESPN). “… So, thank you, whatever her name is. … I get to sit up here and talk about what’s really important and how I can help change kids.”
“It lets me know that everything I’ve been saying is correct for her to have that type of reaction,” LeBron continues. “But we will definitely not shut up and dribble. I will definitely not do that. I mean too much to society, I mean too much to the youth, I mean too much to so many kids that feel like they don’t have a way out and they need someone to help lead them out of the situation they’re in.”
