“There has been no justice not only for her, but for her family.” LeBron wants justice for Breonna Taylor.

NBA superstar LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers teammates wore customized “Make America Great Again” hats to Tuesday night’s playoff game against the Portland Trail Blazers, making a statement about the death of Breonna Taylor, Business Insider reported.

The hats had “great again” crossed out, with text added underneath, so the hats said, “Make America Arrest the Cops who Killed Breonna Taylor.” The message is a reference to the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department shooting of Taylor while serving a no-knock drug warrant in March.

“You know the situation that’s going on in Louisville, Kentucky,” James told reporters after the game, which the Lakers lost. “An innocent woman being killed, by the name of Breonna Taylor. A woman who had a bright future. Her life was taken away from her. There’s been no arrests, there’s been no justice, not only for her, but for her family. We want to continue to shed light on that situation because it’s just unjust. That’s what it’s about.”
