Kyrie Irving, a NBA superstar, has come under fire from the Brooklyn Nets after promoting an antisemitic film and book called “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America”, which is reportedly filled with antisemitic content. The Nets owner, Joe Tsai, released a statement saying that he is “disappointed” in Irving and that he wants to sit down with him to make sure he understands that promoting hate based on race, ethnicity or religion is hurtful to everyone. Irving had posted a tweet on Thursday linking out to the film’s Amazon page, which has caused the latest controversy. The Nets released a statement saying they have no tolerance for any form of hate speech and have been thankful for the support of the Anti-Defamation League during this time. This isn’t the first time Irving has caused controversy, as he has had a stance against the Covid vaccine due to the New York City mandate and was also once an advocate for the flat earth theory.
