‘Help me out folks’- LeBron James posts controversial meme asking the difference between COVID, a cold and the flu
Lebron James posted a controversial meme to Instagram on Christmas Eve asking the difference between COVID-19, the cold and the flu after previously admitting he’d been vaccinated despite voicing skepticism over getting the shot.
The Lakers star posted a picture of the ‘Spider-Man Pointing at Spider-Man’ meme, featuring three identical images of the superhero pointing at one another.
The three are captioned with the words ‘flu,’ ‘covid’ and ‘cold’ underneath each of them, with the implication being the three are one in the same.
Meanwhile the Lakers, like many other teams, have faced widespread personnel losses due to COVID-19.
As of Saturday, the Lakers were still missing head coach Frank Vogel as well as five players: Avery Bradley, Trevor Ariza, Kent Bazemore, Austin Reaves and Malik Monk, all over COVID-19 protocols.

‘If omicron is contagious but not deadly (25,000 cases in Africa with no deaths) why try and control it?’
‘Why not let it go and let people get it and develop immunity? Especially for those who won’t get vaccinated? Pls no hate, I’m just curious.’
Meanwhile, as COVID cases soar across the US, health experts have predicted things will get worse in 2022.
The Omicron variant is expected to cause 140 million new infections from January to March, infecting 60 percent of all Americans, the majority of which will be asymptomatic cases.
