    The athlete described by many as the greatest basketball player of all time and often compared to another basketball legend Michael Jordan, has recently angered fans by commenting on protests in Hong Kong.

    NBA superstar LeBron James may find himself in hot water after a video of him farting at fans, who asked for an autograph, went viral. The footage shows the Lakers forward leaving the Mahogany Prime Steakhouse in Oklahoma City with another basketball player Chris Paul and approaching a black SUV. Two fans hoping to get an autograph wished the athlete good luck in the upcoming came, but the superstar simply lifted his leg and broke wind, which was so loud that it was recorded by the camera’s audio from the other side of the parking lot.

    The fans apparently were ok with his move and started laughing, but netizens didn’t like the basketball superstar's behaviour. Not one bit.

    ​Some users said that LeBron James doesn’t deserve to be compared to another basketball GOAT – Greatest Of All time – Michael Jordan, because the latter always behaved like a gentleman

    ​Some users even said that athletes’ disrespectful behaviour was the reason why they stopped watching sports.

    ​Other users questioned how this story got in the news.

    ​A few of LeBron's fans weren't even bothered by his behaviour. Some even liked it…
