Last week the Lebron James cover for Sports Illustrated’s “Sportsperson of the Year” came out and while this normally wouldn’t warrant attention on my part, my brother pointed out that Lebron wore an over sized safety pin for the shoot.
ESPN took notice of the accessory and as well and wrote, “No, James isn’t suffering some sort of wardrobe malfunction. Since last month’s presidential election, the safety pin has become a symbol of solidarity with those Americans who fear they’ll be disenfranchised by a Donald Trump presidency. The pin is intended to show that the wearer is a safe person to turn to.”
Bravo and thank you Lebron James.
