IDAHO OFFICER FIRED FOR MOCKING LEBRON JAMES SPEAKS OUT
TikTok video mocking LeBron James speaks out following termination
Nate Silvester went viral after he made a video mocking Lebron James.
Several weeks later, he was fired for violating ‘established city and state policing policies’.
An Idaho deputy who was placed on administrative leave a month ago after posting a TikTok mocking LeBron James went viral, was terminated on Friday.
Bellevue Mayor Ned Burns posted on the city’s Facebook page Thursday morning that Bellevue Marshal deputy Nate Silvester was terminated effective May 27, 2021. The mayor also confirmed the firing in a phone call with KTVB.
“It was shocking, but it wasn’t surprising,” Silvester said. “It was disappointing because I do love being a police officer but it’s unfortunate that you cant do that job and have first amendment rights like everyone else.”
Silvester went viral on TikTok after he made a video mocking NBA star Lebron James after he tweeted, and later deleted, about the officer who fatally shot Ma’Kahia Bryant in Ohio.
