Alleged sick taunts about son made LeBron James demand fans be ejected

Alarming reports have emerged about the alleged taunts about his son that saw LeBron James demand fans be ejected from a game.

LeBron James had his reasons.

The LA Lakers star explained on Thursday why he had two Pacers fans ejected in overtime of his team’s 126-116 win in Indiana, including a clutch three-pointer that helped clinch the victory.

“When obscene gestures and language come into it, (it) can’t be tolerated,” James told reporters.

“There’s a difference from cheering for your team and not wanting the other team to win and things I would never say to a fan and they shouldn’t say to me.”

James, who finished with 39 points, did not specify what the fans — who appeared to be a couple — said to him.

Reports later emerged alleging comments made about James’ son Bronny dying in a car crash were the reason he asked for the Pacers fans to be ejected.

With 2:29 left in overtime, James pointed at the two fans and told the referee: “This one right f***ing here!”

The woman who got the boot shed some fake tears and made a pouty face on her way to the exit, though there were no other objections by the foul-mouthed couple.

James was coming off a one-game suspension, which kept him out of the Lakers’ loss to the Knicks on Wednesday, for elbowing the Pistons’ Isaiah Stewart in a bloody Monday melee in Detroit.

It’s not the first time James has had fans ejected from an arena. Last season, James had four fans kicked out of a game in Atlanta.

One of the fans, Juliana Carlos, continued her James hate on Instagram in a curse-filled rant. It earned her the nickname, “Courtside Karen.”

Carlos ultimately deleted her Instagram account as backlash mounted.

There have been no reports of the Pacers couple taking their gripe to social media.
