LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Just one day after tweeting out “accountability” following the guilty verdicts in the Derek Chauvin trial, LeBron James Wednesday tweeted a photo of the officer believed to have shot and killed a teen girl in Columbus, Ohio, calling for accountability.

Ma’Khia Bryant, a 16-year-old Black girl, was shot and killed by a Columbus police officer Tuesday afternoon while allegedly attempting to stab another girl.

On Wednesday, dozens gathered in the neighborhood to protest the fatal shooting.

James — a native of Akron, Ohio — has been an outspoken advocate for social justice causes in the past, often speaking out in support of Black Lives Matter.

The tweet garnered thousands of comments — many of them negative — likes and retweets before it was deleted hours after being posted.

In a later tweet, James said he took it down “because [it’s] being used to create more hate.”
