  • Sierra Canyon School costs around $40,000 a year and was previously attended by Kylie and Kendall Jenner

  • LeBron slammed the NFL in December 2018 for being run by 'a bunch of old white men' with 'slave mentality' and was accused of 'racism' by Former President Donald Trump

'Not a light skinned woman already,' wrote one person, while another added, 'Welp, on the bright side, LeBron has more kids. Maybe they will do better.'

The car was decked out in what appeared to be a custom paint job - which included small, white arrows on the back half of the vehicle - as well as a Batman-esque spoiler on the back of the car

'That girl is whiter than white bruh,' said someone else.

A fourth tweet read, 'Should've got a black queen like his dad,' with an angry face emoji.

'Lost another black king to a money hungry white girl,' a different Twitter user tweeted. 'Bron gotta do better SMH.'

Someone else branded her a 'gold digger,' quoting the lyrics from the song Gold Digger by Kanye West, while others simply shared GIFs and memes showcasing their disappointment in his choice of date. 

Other people defended the budding basketball star, with one writing, 'Bronny James really has grown adults in shambles over the fact he took a white girl to prom in 2022.'

'Anyone that's mad at Bronny's prom date, you are part of the problem in today's society,' agreed someone else. 

Another Twitter user added, 'Bunch of hating a** mofos in this threat. The kid will most likely play in the NBA with his legendary dad and make millions in salary endorsements, he can go to prom with who TF he wants and the rest of us can't do s**t about it regardless of our opinions. STFU already.'

'It's hilarious seeing all these black people have an issue with his prom choice. Bro, y'all are so pathetic,' read a different tweet.

'MFs who are happy with their lives don't make assumptions about teenagers based on the skin color of their dates,' said someone else.

'Black people scream racism and then go there when dude dates a white girl. SMH,' wrote another person.

'Maybe let's just let the kid enjoy his prom without trashing him and his date. He looks great,' defended someone else

The 17-year-old posted a snap of himself and Peyton posing together before the dance to his Instagram Stories. He could be seen smiling from ear to ear in the photo, as he put his arm around his date

'She looks great. They are not responsible for any feelings - good, bad, or otherwise - that their pictures brings up for anyone. Happy prom night.'

'These dudes on here need to remember they are talking about someone's underage daughter,' replied another user. 'Check yourselves fellas.'

The blonde-haired beauty - who is a senior at Sierra Canyon School, where Bronny is a junior - donned an all-white, haltered gown with a plunging neckline for the event. The sparkling dress was covered head to toe in crystals and feathers, and it left her long legs on full display.

Bronny, for his part, looked dapper in a blue and black patterned tuxedo, which he paired with blue suede shoes.

The school that Bronny and Peyton attend together - Sierra Canyon School - costs around $40,000 a year and was previously attended by other famous faces like Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

Bronny drove himself and his date to the prom in a black Mercedes AMG GT Coupe, which starts at $326,000 but can cost more depending on customizations.

The car was decked out in what appeared to be a custom paint job - which included small, white arrows on the back half of the vehicle.

In the wake of Bronny's backlash, alleged photos of his dad, LeBron, at his own prom with a white woman have resurfaced online.

The pictures were originally shared in 2017 by someone who claimed to be the niece of LeBron's date, but they have been re-shared amid the recent response to his son's prom companion.

Peyton shared a snap of herself in her stunning dress to her own account, but when Bronny complimented her in the comment section, the post was quickly flooded with hate.

The photo showed her starring straight towards the camera as her curled locks fell around her face.

'You killt,' Bronny wrote, alongside a heart-eye emoji.

'LeBron Raymone James Jr. I am so disappointed and dissatisfied with you prom date,' replied one person.

'Delete this comment, LeBron James Jr.,' said another. 

A third wrote, 'Bruh no way you serious.' 

'LeBron ain’t taught you 'bout off court game I see,' added a different user. 

'Disappointed in you brotha,' wrote another commenter, while someone else said, 'Another lost soul.'

Bronny's mom, Savannah James, took to Instagram to congratulate her son on attending the big event, and she said she felt 'tons of emotions' after seeing her eldest son go to prom.

'So @bronny went to prom this past weekend... Tons of emotions and realizations. Time really flies,' she gushed. 'So proud of you young man! I will always have your front and your back!'

She shared a photo that showed her tying Bronny's bowtie, while another featured her fixing his bowtie.

The final pic in the post showed Bronny's younger sister, Zhuri James, seven, looking at the camera with a serious expression on her face, as her brother stood in his prom 'fit behind her. 

'Zhuri is processing all of this too!' Savannah added in the caption.

LeBron - who also shares son Bryce Maximus James, 14, with Savannah - reposted her picture to his own account, adding, 'One thing she don't play about is her f**king brothers!' 

Bronny appeared to be in good spirits as he and Peyton took photos alongside their friends before the celebration

Lol he is not on the black community, that's a whole different zip code, far away from home

Comment by caribmama on May 24, 2022 at 8:06am

And this is why the black community can never get ahead.

Sometimes you can't blame those kids, that is the world they appeal to, how many black girls are in the school, how many white girls trying to get with him, how many black friends does he hang with? If majority of his surroundings are white, that is who he will bring.

Comment by Ricardo O'Connor on May 20, 2022 at 8:54am
  1. Wait a minute! What’s the fuss about?! The kid wanted to take another human being from another race and you all in your feelings about she being white and him not taking a black woman. What’s wrong with you people. He’s under no obligation to take a black woman. He can take anyone he feels like talking. Get a life and stop the hate!

It might be temporary, but it does not look good, he could have taken a sista to the prom. As black people we are at a cross roads, where some of us look at celebs, and hold them to a higher level, we want them to reflex us. That's why people love seeing professional black athletes with their black wives, it somehow give us a sense of pride. No one cares if she come from a well to do family, all the more to take a sista, even one from a not well to do family, I guarantee that she would cherish that for a lifetime.

The funny thing is that I do not think it has anything to do with her being white she is probably just the most popular girl in their class or maybe she comes from a well to do family. It is all temporary anyway.
