A few hours after Donald Trump rescinded his invitation to Steph Curry and the NBA champion Golden State Warriors, LeBron James took to Twitter to criticize the 45th President.

"U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!" James wrote.

James later posted a video on Twitter explaining his earlier post:

Curry said on Friday that he didn't want to visit the White House after defeating James' Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals this summer.

"By acting and not going, hopefully that will inspire some change when it comes to what we tolerate in this country and what is accepted and what we turn a blind eye to," Curry said.

Trump chided the Warriors star early Saturday on Twitter: "Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!"

It was the second time in less than 24 hours Trump ridiculed some of the country's top professional athletes. At a rally Friday in Alabama, the President had some harsh words for NFL stars like Colin Kaepernick.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say: 'Get that son of a b--- off the field right now, out. He's fired. He's fired!' " Trump told the crowd.

To which NFL commissioner Roger Goodell responded in a statement: "Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities."
