Ad Exposing LeBron James’ China Hypocrisy Reportedly Rejected Over Fear of Upsetting the NBA Star

An advertisement exposing NBA star LeBron James’ silence on human rights abuses in China was reportedly refused by a billboard company over fears the sign would anger the basketball player.

The ad, created by the National Legal and Policy Center, was to be posted earlier this month near the entrance to the NBA bubble in Orlando, Florida, according to the New York Post.
