Following the violences and series of events that took place in the city of Charlottesville, Virginia, Cavs’ star LeBron James was among many NBA players who spoke out on Twitter against the white nationalists and their march. However, the whole thing escalated once a car drove through a crowd of anti-racist counter-protesters, killing a person in the process, and the governor of Virginia declared a state of emergency with both sides engaging with the other.

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ star responded to the violence in Charlottesville with a pair of tweets condemning the alt-right movement and taking a clear shot at Donald Trump in the process.
