LeBron Has Message For Man In Viral Child-Punching Video 1

A troubling video has been making the rounds this week showing an adult male violently smacking a child football player in the head.

The boy in question was reportedly playing for the Savannah Gators 9 U football team. The incident is said to have occurred in Kissimmee, Florida at the American Youth Football National Championships.

After the altercation went viral, a since-deleted Facebook message reportedly from the Gators’ page has been making the rounds.

“Please keep the negative comments off this page please this organization has great coaches we understand what we all saw yesterday was disturbing to us all but let’s not blame everyone for one mans actions,” the message read.

“The organization is not at Nationals we have only 2 age groups a National 7U & 9U with only those coaches of those age groups witch [sic] the guy in the video is our 9U head coach he is a good guy that just took it a little to [sic] far on a 9U player we understand and we are aware of what’s going on and will like to apologize to the #BigPeachConference….”

As the father of three children, the clip of a young boy being brutalized by an adult no doubt struck a nerve with LeBron. Based on that alone, his reaction is unsurprising.
