LeBron James' house vandalised with racist graffiti

VANDALISED: LeBron James

LEBRON JAMES' home was vandalised with racist graffiti on the front gate Wednesday morning (May 31).

Speaking to CNN, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Aareon Jefferson said they received a call Wednesday morning making them aware that the n-word was painted on the gate of the NBA star' home. Jefferson said by the time police arrived, the slur had been painted over.

The Cleveland Cavaliers forward was not home at the time and Jefferson told CNN the police are still investigating the incident and cannot say if the home was burgled.

James spoke about the incident in a press conference scheduled for the opening of the NBA Finals. "No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is tough," he said. "We got a long way to go for us as a society and for us as African Americans until we feel equal in America.”
