Similarily to his pops, Donald Trump Jr. has always felt empowered by the access social media gives his thumbs to let his thoughts run free. Because of this, Trump Jr. regularly shares what he believes to be a highly valued opinion on the celebrities and viral moments.
Earlier this week LeBron James had two fans booted from their cushy courtside seats at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis during overtime as a result of the excess insults allegedly hurled.

Although the fans’ exact statements have not been confirmed by James, the athlete later told reporters of his decision to throw them out: “There’s a difference [between] cheering for your team and not wanting the other team to win and things I would never say to a fan and they shouldn’t say to me.”
And on Saturday night Trump Jr. took it upon himself to recirculate the clip on his Instagram, asking: “Is there a bigger bitch in pro sports than LaSnitch?”
LeBron James may or may not have seen Don Jr.’s IG posts, but his supporters definitely have and they’ve come in herds to defend the NBA star online. While the politician’s son limited his comments on social media, people shared their thoughts on the interaction on Twitter.
Jemele Hill tweeted: “Don Jr. called LeBron a “bitch,” knowing full well he wouldn’t do shit but ask for an autograph if he ever saw LeBron face to face. Also, the irony of calling another man a bitch while limiting the comments on your post …”
