NBA champion LeBron James did not mince words Wednesday when asked about Donald Trump defending his 2005 comments about making unwanted advances on women as "locker room talk."
James sharply criticized the Republican presidential nominee, referring to Trump as "that guy."
"We don't disrespect women in no shape or fashion in our lockers rooms," he told reporters. "What that guy was saying...I don't know what that is. That's trash talk."
Last week, the Ohio native endorsed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for president in an editorial. He said Clinton "has always been a champion for children and their futures," a cause he supports through the LeBron James Family Foundation.
His comments were a sharp contrast to how another sports icon, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, reacted when asked about Trump.
When asked during a press conference Wednesday about how he would respond if his children heard "Trump's version of locker room talk," Brady smiled uncomfortably and said, "Thank you guys, have a good day," before walking off the podium.
The former Super Bowl champion's silence follows positive comments he made about Trump during an interview late last year.
When a "Make America Great Again" hat was spotted in Brady's locker, the Patriots quarterback said in a radio interview that Trump was a good friend and has done some "pretty amazing" things as an entrepreneur, television star, and now as a politician. At the time, Trump was in the midst of the Republican primary.
Brady did not say in the interview whether he would vote for Trump, but at least for now, it seems he will remain tight-lipped about who he's supporting before next month's presidential election.
