CLEVELAND, Ohio — LeBron James is weighing in on the vulgar comments made by Donald Trump in a 2005 taping for Access Hollywood, saying the conversation wasn’t “locker room talk.”
Trump dismissed the comments as “locker room talk” during Sunday’s presidential debate and apologized to the American people in an attempt to move past the comments.
In a TMZ Sports interview at the Cavaliers’ practice facility Wednesday, LeBron was asked about his view of “locker room talk.”
“What is locker room talk to me? It’s not what that guy said,” LeBron replied. “We don’t disrespect women in no shape or fashion in our locker room.”
LeBron continued: “I got a mother-in-law, a wife, a mom and a daughter, and those conversations just don’t go on in our locker room. What goes on in our locker room is sporting events that happened the night before, about family, about strategies that we may have that night. But what that guy was saying, that’s not…I don’t know what that is. That’s trash talk.”
