Ohio rejecting some LeBron James hater license plates

Some fans in Ohio are still pretty pissed at LeBron James for leaving for South Beach.

But you can’t put that on your car. Apparently.

The Dayton Daily News in Ohio looked at personalized license plates rejected by the state‘s Bureau of Motor Vehicles and found some LeBron James hate did not make the cut. (Be warned: if you are easily offended do not click that link, some of the non-LeBron ones got rejected for pretty obvious reasons.) Thanks to Rob Mahoney at Sports Illustrated for finding this.

Among the LeBron ones were:

• IH8LBJ
• LBJSUCK
• LBJSUX.

My question: Is that really so offensive as to get rejected? I could think of some four-letter phrases with LBJ tacked on that would and should get rejected. But if you hate LeBron James is that going to offend people or lead to fights or something?

Or, maybe Ohio just wants to protect the legacy of Texas Democrat Lyndon B. Johnson. Say he sucks and those are fightin’ words.

    Still don’t understand how anyone can blame this guy… Who would want to play in Cleveland?

      its not about him leaving, it was about how he did it

        YOU! *points to david0303* grow a sack, fill with testicles, and get over it. he left cuz cleveland was never going to be good enough for him to win a title there. and since the discussion is always “LBJ ain’t as good as *insert name here*, because he doesn’t have any rings!”, then leave it at that. he has rings now. therefore, his decision-making is pretty damn good.

        idiot, *points to you manyfresh*, i said i dont care that he left, it was his decision to make and i agree he made the right choice. but i lost all my respect for him when he had to put on a tv show to say where he was gunna sign. i’m not retarded and gunna say hes not the best player in the world right now and who ever is better than him cuz no one is better than him right now, but i disagree with the way he left.

        these lebron fans are crazy how defensive you get when i just say i don’t like the way he left Cleveland

    Lyndon Johnson was a mob puppet.

      You’re right, but it won’t fit on a license plate.

      And Lebron is an Obama Zombie.

    You have to be a real loser to want a license plate like that.

    Keep your opinions on your bumper stickers.

    Better yet, keep them to yourself. I don’t care what you think about darned near anything. All I want from other drivers is to get moving when the light turns green!

    Was “6FReed” available? You know, Sharon Reed. The channel 19 news anchor LeBron made another baby momma of his?
    Google LeBron James and Sharon Reed and learn.
