A glossary of 142 terrible nicknames people on Twitter have for LeBron James

New, comments

Here is a fun fact about basketball player LeBron James: His name starts with the prefix "Le," which is French for "the." It's true!

For a variety of reasons, some people don't like LeBron James. Some of these people have found a particularly effective way of expressing their distaste for him. They take whatever insult they want to say about LeBron James, and then they put a "Le" in front of it. It does not matter if this word shares letters or sounds with "LeBron," has the same amount of syllables as "LeBron," or really in any way, shape, or form resembles the word "LeBron." As long as there's a "Le," these people figure they have made an insightful, clever joke about LeBron James.

We spent several hours searching Twitter for every combination of "Le" and random negative words we thought people might put next to LeBron James' name. About 90 percent of the time, somebody on the internet had actually used that dumb insult. The stupider we got, the more people had actually used the insult we assumed nobody would be dumb enough to use.

This glossary is the result. We tried to find tweets where people earnestly used the insult rather than tweets where it was included as a joke or part of a list. We generally found several examples for each term, but for brevity's sake, we only included two or three per insult. We try not to put racist and homophobic hate speech on our website, so we excluded LeBron insults that crossed that boundary, but we promise you, "Le[OFFENSIVE TERM]" is also out there. We tried to put this in alphabetical order, but about 100 insults in, we gave up.
