NBA star LeBron James disagrees with Donald Trump when it comes to locker room talk, telling reporters on Wednesday that the Cleveland Cavaliers don’t disrespect women when they chat among themselves.

James was weighing in on the brewing controversy surrounding the GOP presidential nominee’s recently released boasts about groping women — and on Trump’s defense that his vulgar statements to Billy Bush on a hot mic in 2005 were just “locker room talk.”

“What is locker room talk to me? It’s not what that guy said. We don’t disrespect women in no shape or fashion in our locker room,” James said, before explaining that he typically discusses family and sporting events with teammates.

Video of James’ comments were tweeted by Hillary Clinton.

On Friday, The Washington Post published a video of Trump boasting to Bush about kissing, groping and having sex with women. “When you’re a star, they let you do anything. … I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” Trump added. “Grab ‘em by the pu–y.”

In Sunday’s second Presidential Debate, Trump argued that his comments were simply “locker room talk.”

Meanwhile, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady walked out of a press conference on Wednesday when he was asked about the topic.
