LeBron James said he deleted his “YOU’RE NEXT” tweet threatening a Columbus, Ohio, police officer because other people were using it to “create more hate.”

In another tweet Wednesday evening, the NBA star and Black Lives Matter activist, said he was frustrated by police violence in general and not just one officer.

“I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate -This isn’t about one officer. it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY,” he wrote.
