It’s been months since Breonna Taylor was tragically killed in her own house by the police for no reason and those responsible for her untimely death at the age of just 26 are yet to be brought to justice! That being said, LeBron James mentioned her name during an NBA post-game press conference and the legendary basketball player also demanded that those cops be arrested.
LeBron James is not planning on giving up the fight for justice when it comes to the case of Black American young woman, Breonna Taylor who lost her life on March 13 of this year.
It’s been five months since then and yet, none of the cops involved in her fatal shooting have been arrested and trialed.
Many others other there, including a lot of celebrities have been rallying for justice to be achieved and LeBron James is not an exception, the NBA star using his voice and influence to remind people about this as much as possible.
Furthermore, this time, he made a huge statement, mocking the current president, Donald Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ quote by changing it into one that fits his own goal.
In other words, LeBron’s hat read ‘Make America Arrest The Cops Who Killed Breonna Taylor,’ instead.
But the eye-catching accessory was not the only thing he did for the cause.
"There's been no arrests. There's been no justice."

He also discussed it in more detail during the after-game press conference he attended.
When asked about the hat and what it was about, he responded that ‘[It’s] an innocent woman getting killed by the name of Breonna Taylor. A woman who had a bright future [ahead of her], and her life was taken away. There have been no arrests. There has been no justice, not only for her, but her family, and we want to continue to shed light on the situation. It’s just unjust. That is what it’s about,’ LeBron James stated.
