'Don't come for King James': Ellen Pompeo challenges reporter Laura Ingraham to fight her

Don't go running your mouth off, because Ellen Pompeo will probably put you in place. The Grey's Anatomy actress has challenged Laura Ingraham to a fight following the Fox News presenter's criticism of NBA star LeBron James. Ellen tweeted :



Ellen did not hold back. 



 The actress shamed the reporter for criticizing the athlete for having a voice and expressing his concerns.



Ellen prompted the fight with Lauren Ingraham after the news reporter recently slammed NBA star LeBron James for his constant criticism of president Donald Trump. LeBron recently appeared on a podcast, Rolling With The Champions, with fellow basketball star Kevin Durant. During the interview, he criticised Donald Trump and his presidential capacity, following the President's comments on the recent Parkland school shooting. Check out the interview below:

Clearly, the podcast rubbed certain people the wrong way. After catching wind of the podcast, Laura Inghram went on air to belittle the athlete and his opinion.

The news reporter says: "All right, we’re gonna create a new banner: ‘This is a dumb jock alert.’ NBA superstar Lebron James is talking politics again, and this time it’s R-rated. Here’s his barely intelligible — not to mention ungrammatical — take on President Trump in a new ESPN podcast.

I’m numb to this commentary, ‘like.’ Must they run their mouths like that? Unfortunately, a lot of kids and some adults take these ignorant comments seriously. Look, there might be a cautionary lesson in LeBron for kids. This is what happens when you attempt to leave high school a year early to join the NBA. And it’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball. Oh, and LeBron and Kevin, you’re great players, but no one voted for you. Millions elected Trump to be their coach. So keep the political commentary to yourself, or as someone once said, shut up and dribble."

Laura Ingraham's comments received heavy backlash from other professional athletes as well. 





LeBron has since said that he "will NOT shut up and dribble". 



We're wondering what makes celebrities any more different than the other billions of citizens of the country. Does being famous mean you instantly don't have an opinion that matters? Guess we'll have to ask the president.
