*Kobe Bryant’s “Dear Basketball” won an Academy Award Sunday night for best animated short, and the NBA icon didn’t hesitate to use his acceptance speech for good.

As previously reported, Fox News host Laura Ingraham was labeled a racist for saying that Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James should not speak out about social causes, but rather “shut up and dribble.”

Bryant refuted this premise during his acceptance speech, and his former on-court rival applauded the move on Twitter:

Kobe’s film, “Dear Basketball,” described his love for the game from his youth playing days until the end of his 20-year NBA career.
