LeBron James’ home in Los Angeles was defaced with racist graffiti, TMZ is reporting.

Multiple LAPD officers responded to James’ Brentwood home early Wednesday, the gossip outlet reported. Someone had spray painted the n-word on the front gate.

According to TMZ, the hateful message has been covered up and investigators are looking for neighbor security footage to identify the person who vandalized the gate. James, who reportedly purchased the home in 2015, does not appear to live at the residence on a regular basis.
