LeBron James Apologized for Using the Word ‘Retarded’

by May 10, 2011


LeBron told the media that he was sorry for using an insensitive remark to answer one of their questions. From the AP: “LeBron James says he’s sorry for using the word ‘retarded’ in a postgame news conference. The Miami Heat star muttered the word after Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals as he and Dwyane Wade listened to a question about Wade’s takedown of Boston guard Rajon Rondo. James had his hand covering his mouth when he said ‘that’s retarded’ as a reporter asked Wade whether the play that dislocated Rondo’s elbow was dirty.”
