The Idaho police officer who was fired after his video mocking LeBron James went viral now says that he is another target of the left-wing cancel culture.
“I am the latest target of cancel culture. That’s all it is,” former Bellevue, Idaho, deputy marshal Nate Silvester told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday.
In April, Officer Silvester made national news after his viral TikTok video slamming NBA star LeBron James for getting involved in police work. James was attacked by many — including Silvester — for posting a photo of a white cop with the caption “You’re next.” The NBA star soon deleted the image and gave a non-apology apology for having posted it.
In his viral video, officer Silvester — who is seen in uniform and sitting in his squad car — pretended to have a phone conversation with a black person threatening to stab someone.
