LeBron James’ son, Bronny James was criticized for dating a white girl, Peyton Gelfuso, and bringing her to prom. The 17-year-old shared pictures from the prom with his girlfriend on his Instagram stories on May 18. His mother, Savannah also posted behind-the-scenes images of him getting ready.
“Sooooo @bronny went to prom this past weekend….. Tons of emotions and realizations. Time really flies. [crying face emoji] So proud of you young man!! I will always have your front and your back!! [pink hearts emoji] Zhuri is processing all of this too!! [x2 laughing face emojis] (Last slide),” Savannah captioned the images on her Instagram.

Some users slammed Bronny after finding out that his girlfriend, who went as his prom date, is white. But while there were trolls dissing Bronny, there were also people defending him and calling out the haters. One user tweeted, “Grown ass men and women being pressed about who Bronny James, a 17 year old, goes to his high school prom with is by far the strangest behavior that I’ve seen from people on here.”

Another said, “People mad at Bronny James for going to prom with a white girl…. Um you are a fu*’king rac’ist for having a problem with it. Majority of people these days don’t see race, they just see people. If you got a problem with anything related to that stuff, you’re the problem.” A third wrote, “people mad at bronny james for going to prom with a young white woman just shows you how much people are still raci’st til this day.”
