LeBron James is being bashed on social media for supporting Simone Biles and Simone Manuel for winning Olympic gold. James posted a picture of the women on his Instagram and wrote about how inspiring the women are for young Black girls like his daughter. The fact that James singled out the Simone girls, and mentioned their race, infuriated a lot of people who thought James was being racist.

“Lebron’s comment was totally out of line as an American role model for young kids. He disappointed young white kids and set back young black kids…. made them not equal, even if it did temporarily make them feel special. Oh, and it created all of this negativity,” one person completely missing the point of the caption wrote in response.

“Why couldn’t he say sum bout Michael phelps or someone else?” another clueless follower asked.

“Why do they only have to inspire black girls?” one IG user remarked.

“How about congratulations to these young AMERICAN ladies!! Thanks for inspiring ALL young women! Please STOP the black and white. Lebron man you’re smarter than that. You have the power to reach so many people. Black, white, ALL Strong women should be inspired by young girls to do their best,” another criticized.

It’s hard to understand why anyone would be bothered by the NBA all-star’s caption. He is a father of a young Black girl who is happy that his daughter has role models and champions that look like her. This isn’t rocket science, people. Have two seats, please.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
