On Saturday, a Nazi rally broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James weighed in on Saturday about the ongoing violence taking place in Charlottesville, Va., taking a shot at President Donald Trump and expressing his sadness in the process. "Is this the direction our country is heading?"

"It's sad what's going on in Charlottesville", James said while mocking Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan. During the chaos, one person was killed and 35 others injured when a vehicle rammed into a crowd of counter-protesters.

At 7 p.m., a candlelight vigil will take place in Lafayette Park, across the street from the White House. Organizers said they picked that spot because they feel it's important to keep Olango's memory alive.


The protests were between white nationalists, who were protesting the removal of a statue of Civil War Confederate general Robert E. Lee, and counter-protesters. A group of counterprotesters soon demonstrated nearby, leading to a violent clash between the two groups that ultimately ended with a silver Dodge Challenger plowing through several hundred counterprotesters and a state of emergency being declared by the governor.

LeBron James is known around the world as arguably the greatest basketball player of his generation, if not of all time.
