Conservative author and activist Candace Owens has accused 'pea-brained' LeBron James of stirring up hatred that led to the shooting of two Los Angeles sheriffs on Saturday.

'Why does this happen? Because pea-brained celebrities that are idolized like @KingJames tell young black men that they are “literally being hunted”,' she said, referencing a May 6 tweet in which James responded to the murder of Ahmaud Arbery.
