“If you hate America so much and you don’t like this country that gave you a billion dollars, leave it or come deal with me. You go to China, go to these sweatshops that you employ all these laborers and use these women and pay ’em pennies on the dollar to make your millions. F*** you LeBron James. You’re a coward. You’re a spineless coward, and you’re a b*tch.”
