This happened on Saturday, Lebron obviously not realizing that it doesn’t help to try to muffle your voice when you are in front of a live mic called a reporter’s question retarded when she was asking D Wade if the Heat played “dirty”.
Calling someone retarded in our society isn’t as damning as calling someone a f*g or n*gger, but James decided to play it safe and apologize.
“First of all, I want to apologize for using the ‘R’ word after Game 3. If I offended anyone, I sincerely apologize,” said James
We are such an ultra sensitive society that the word retarded has to be referred to as the “R” word. It is utterly ridiculous to me. I think everyone needs to relax and take things in the proper context.
Does it really matter if he said the reporter was stupid, retarded or an idiot, you know what he meant and that it wasn’t trying to offend anyone mentally challenged.
The majority of the people riding on their high horse, if we checked their closets would come tumbling down off that horse real quick.
Lebron James hairline, now that is retarded.
