LeBron Posts Photo On Instagram Of Friend Dressed Up As O.J. Simpson

A side-by-side photo of LeBron and his friend who is dressed as O.J. Simpson

LeBron James is taking some heat on Instagram this evening.

The criticism surrounds this photo LeBron posted, featuring his friend and Cleveland Cavaliers' scout Brandon Weems. It shows Weems in his apparent Halloween costume: O.J. Simpson.

Weems is dressed in a USC uniform with O.J.'s old No. 32 and his Afro. Most noticeable perhaps, he is wearing Isotoner gloves like the ones that played a prominent role in O.J.'s murder trial in the 1990s.

Now, Simpson was of course acquitted of murder in the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. However, he does have a history of domestic abuse aside from the murder charges.

Many people weren't too keen on King James seemingly endorsing the costume of a man with a checkered past. The comment section on the post is filled with people unhappy with the costume.
