Trump supporters upset over MAGA hat worn by LeBron James about Breonna Taylor
Lakers wear red MAGA-like hats asking for justice for Breonna Taylor with the message as follows: But the text on the hats reads: "Make America Great Again Arrest The Cops Who Killed Breonna Taylor.”
26–year—old Breonna Taylor was shot and killed by Louisville Police in the morning hours of March 13th in her apartment during a forced entry raid. One officer has been fired, but none of the officers were charged with a crime.
CNN has reported that the office of the Kentucky Attorney General is investigating the incident with the following statement, "The meeting provided an opportunity for Attorney General Cameron to personally express his condolences to the family," the office said. "The investigation remains ongoing, and our office of Special Prosecutions continues to review all the facts in the case to determine the truth."
The Independent reports that, “On Tuesday night – before the team’s opening game of their first-round playoff match against the Portland Trail Blazers – some Lakers members showed up wearing red MAGA hats.”
"It's just something that we continue to put our foot on the gas, continue to pressure," James said. "The situation that's going on in Louisville, Kentucky, an innocent woman being killed, by the name of Breonna Taylor, a woman who had a bright future, and her life was taken away from her. There have been no arrests. There's been no justice -- not only for her but for her family. We want to continue to shed light on that situation. It's just unjust."
