Tabloid websites MediaTakeOut and BlackSportsOnline are facing backlash from LeBron and Savannah James as well as many others after posting a reprehensible story about 16-year-old Bronny James which appeared to have no merit. 

Three days ago, Bronny liked a run-of-the-mill photo on Instagram from his best friend's mom, Larsa Pippen. Bronny is close with Scottie Pippen Jr., a sophomore at Vanderbilt University and son of NBA legend Scottie Pippen. 

For some reason, MediaTakeOut, followed by BlackSportsOnline, used that one like to write a story claiming the 16-year-old and 46-year-old Larsa were communicating on Instagram in a sexual manner. They ran headlines implying Bronny was "shooting his shot" at Larsa.

Almost immediately, the now-deleted stories on both sites caused outrage because Bronny is a child and they were based on a single like of a single photo. 

Both of Bronny's parents responded on Instagram, slamming the outlets for running a story of that caliber about a minor. 

"With everything going on in the world right now, THIS is the shit y'all talking about….At the end of the day y'all are talking about a minor. I don't care what type of 'celebrity' y'all think he is, he's a child and the bullshit needs to stop," Savannah wrote on her Instagram Story. 

LeBron echoed his wife's statement, warning MediaTakeOut and BlackSportsOnline that they may face consequences for the story. 

"Uh-Oh y'all fucked with the wrong one now! Good luck. It won't be cute!" he wrote after sharing his wife's response on Instagram.
