It was an extremely bloody weekend that resulted in at least six children losing their lives in shootings across the country.
The children, ages 6 to 14, were all shot and killed while doing everyday things — riding in mom’s car, walking in a mall, and playing in a yard with their cousins, according to CNN.
Jason Whitlock, who is not to fond of either Colin Kaepernick and LeBron James, took to Twitter on Monday and promptly calling them both out to speak out on the kids being shot dead. He also brought up Nike and China in the matter.

Whitlock has stated in the past that Kaepernick and LeBron only like to speak out when African-American people get killed by Caucasian people, but never when it comes to Black-on-Black violence.

Using dead black kids and the old "what about black on black crime/chicago?" trope get off your new MAGA fanbase is a new low holy shit https://t.co/v8YDicTHIt

On Tuesday afternoon, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar would indeed speak on the incident by taking to Twitter and commenting, “So so damn sad man!!! They are just innocent, beautiful, strong kids! What’s wrong with people?!?!?!? My thoughts and prayers goes out to each one of their families and May they REST IN PARADISE!”
