LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers had two Pacers fans ejected in overtime of his team’s 126-116 win over the Indiana Pacers.

LeBron James began talking with an official and pointing at two supporters sitting courtside. After a brief conversation, security was called, and the fans were taken from their seats, Daily Wire reported.

James later told reporters during a post-game press conference about what made him uncomfortable, “I mean nothing is uncomfortable for me, but there’s a difference between cheering on your home faithful, booing opponents and things of that nature or not wanting your opponents to be successful, and there’s then moments where it goes outside the line with obscene gestures and words that shouldn’t be tolerated in our game from nobody.”

“I would never say it to a fan and a fan should never say it to a player,” James went on.

James made no claims regarding what the two fans said or did. However, James can be seen on video pointing at them while yelling: “It’s right f***ing here!”

The event drew a lot of criticism online, with many people dubbing James “LeSnitch” or “LeKaren” for ejecting the fans.
