“If I’m out there and it’s not even my child, we have a lot more than words,” the Lakers superstar said Wednesday night.
If you haven’t seen it… the video is quite disturbing – an adult male ATTACKS one of his players after a game on the field, hitting the child in the head several times before throwing him on the sidelines.
The incident allegedly took place during the National Youth Football Championships in Kissimmee, Florida… and the child is believed to be only 9 years old.
The man has been hit with a ton of backlash on social media for his actions … with plenty calling for his work – and even jail time.
The coach issued a video apology… saying, “At the end of the day, I’m a man. I’m not going to make any apologies for what I did ”- but, clearly, the mea culpa wasn’t enough for LeBron.
James Instagrammed the video and SLAMMED the trainer… adding, “It’s not possible !! I couldn’t be my child. “
Other athletes have expressed similar outrage… with Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe writing: “Even if * it’s his child, I’ll whip him.” “
“I won’t let anyone prey on the weak or the vulnerable in front of me,” Sharpe continued. ” It will not arrive. “
It is not known whether the coach will face criminal charges – or even disciplinary action by the youth league – as a result of the incident.
