Did James Harden wear a Thin Blue Line mask? Internet can't believe NBA player supports Blue Lives Matter
NBA Twitter is currently losing its collective minds after an image of Houston Rockets player James Harden wearing what appears to be a Thin Blue Line mask surfaced on social media. This comes at a time when discussions about social injustice and police brutality are still raging across the nation.
While Harden is yet to make a statement about the incident, the image was shared on the Houston Rockets Twitter page with the caption "Mask up". At this point, Twitterati doesn't know what to make of this situation and a lot of people appear to be very angry with Harden. One of the less harsh tweets reads, "James Harden pro blue lives matter now lol." On the other end of the spectrum, we have one user who tweeted, "James Harden a sell-out."
Of course, most of Twitter seems to still think that this must be some kind of an accident or a fake picture of some sort. A lot of users are honestly just confused and some are still refusing to believe that Harden is a supporter of the Blue Lives Matter movement.
"James Harden wtf are you doing," one such user tweeted. "Dawg it’s no way James Harden knew what he was wearing lmao," another user wrote. Yet another user pointed to Harden's background as evidence of him not being a supporter of Blue Lives Matter writing, "James Harden was born and raised in Compton and he hangs out with Lil Baby all the time. If you actually think he supports Blue Lives Matter, you're an idiot."
Between all of this though, there are a few people who believe that this might just be a stunt of some sort. In fact, one user suggested that this is Harden's way of building goodwill with the police in case of any trouble in the future. "James Harden isn't stupid. Going out to the strip club every night while also being the most recognizable athlete, dude is getting a free pass from cops for life. Well played James. Well played," they wrote.
Whatever the actual circumstances of the incident are, we'll just have to wait and see.
