Kobe Bryant just slammed Republican critics live on stage at Oscars (WATCH)

- 19.27

Weeks ago, conservative journalist Laura Ingraham made national headlines when she told basketball champion LeBron James and Kevin Durant to “shut up and dribble” when they “dared” talk politics.

The condescending and racist remarks by the Fox News host were met with a wave of criticism, but none on so grand a stage as the 90th Academy Awards, when Kobe Bryant took the opportunity to slam the misguided comment.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

“As basketball players, we’re really supposed to shut up and dribble. But I’m glad we do a little bit more than that,” Kobe said.

Bryant won the Oscar for Best Animal Short Film with “Dear Basketball.” Not only did he leave tonight with a golden statue, but gave one more bigoted talking head the resounding condemnation she deserves.
