Kyrie Irving has been suspended by the Brooklyn Nets for at least five games without pay for promoting an antisemitic movie without fully apologising. The NBA team took action against the All-Star guard a week after he tweeted about the movie ‘Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America’. Irving refused to explicitly reject antisemitism during a media session on Thursday, prompting the immediate suspension. The Nets stated that they were dismayed that he had failed to acknowledge specific hateful material in the film. Irving will serve a suspension without pay until he satisfies remedial measures that address the harmful impact of his conduct.
