Bronny James is facing public scrutiny once again in the streets of social media and this time it’s because of his prom date.
The 17-year-old son of NBA superstar LeBron James attended the prom with a Sierra Canyon classmate named Peyton.
Bronny’s mother, Savannah James, shared photos of him preparing to attend prom along with the caption:
Sooooo @bronny went to prom this past weekend….. Tons of emotions and realizations.
Time really flies. 🥲 So proud of you young man!! I will always have your front and your back!!💕
Zhuri is processing all of this too!! 😂😂 (Last slide)
See her original post below.
It didn’t take long before photos of Bronny and his date hit the streets of the internet and spread faster than COVID at a house party.
Reactions from adults were a mixed bag of foolishness.
Some were outraged that Bronny didn’t take a young Black queen to the prom, while others noted that he goes to a predominantly White school so his date comes as no surprise.
Then, there were the real weirdos who opted to attack Peyton on social media to the point where she had to limit the comments on her Instagram page.
Robert Griffin III took to Twitter to defend LeBron Jr. and his date writing:
LEAVE THESE KIDS ALONE!
People clowning Bronny for his prom date are just miserable.
Let them enjoy their day.

The last time the internet decided to make Bronny the topic of conversation, the mama bear came out of Savannah.
