LeBron James apologizes for ‘Jewish money’ Instagram post

ESPN

LeBron James apologized Sunday for lyrics he shared on his Instagram account over the weekend that included the line, "getting that Jewish money."

"Apologies, for sure, if I offended anyone," James told ESPN following the Los Angeles Lakers' 107-99 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. "That's not why I chose to share that lyric. I always [post lyrics]. That's what I do. I ride in my car, I listen to great music, and that was the byproduct of it. So I actually thought it was a compliment, and obviously it wasn't through the lens of a lot of people. My apologies. It definitely was not the intent, obviously, to hurt anybody."

James was quoting the song "ASMR" by hip-hop artist 21 Savage and typed the lyrics, "We been getting that Jewish money, Everything is Kosher," onto his Instagram Stories as he rode as a passenger in a vehicle while wearing a purple Lakers sweatshirt Saturday afternoon.
