1 . While LeBron James returned to do what he does best on Wednesday night, South Park as his controversial comments on Rockets GM Daryl Morey.
In a section titled "Let Them Eat Goo," the time of the Comedy Central show, LeBron used exact words from his press conference earlier this week – where the Lakers star commissioned Morey over his tweet about the situation between China and Hong Kong – in a scene about a huge issue that rocked South Park Elementary School: healthy lunches.
The school had replaced fertilizer food with healthier alternatives and Cartman was not satisfied, so he channeled his inner LeBron when he raised the issue.
While I fully understand that everyone wants to tear LeBron right now because of his ridiculous comments, I liked South Park to take on the disgusting "beyond meat" trend that is getting bigger and bigger much more than mockery of James.
