LeBron James Calls Out Hate Messages On Twitter

Like many celebrities, LeBron James uses Twitter to connect with fans. But some of his 900,000 followers have used the micro-blogging site to let him know just how little they think of the NBA superstar and the fact that he’s black.

Among those tweets reported in the Miami Herald :

• “You are a big-nosed, big-lipped bug eyed [racist word]. Ur greedy, u try to hide ur ghettoness.”
• “No one wants to hear u speak. Why don’t you speak by laying ur head under a moving car?” To which James added the words, “Haaa, OK I’ll try that.”

James this week decided to retweet several of the hurtful comments, dubbing Tuesday ” Hater Day ” on his Twitter account – @KingJames .
