Protesters gathered court side at the Brooklyn Nets game Monday after Kyrie Irving promoted a film deemed anti-Semitic film on his Twitter account.

Irving shared, and has since deleted, a book and film called “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America,” claimed to be filled with anti-Semitic tropes and disinformation. Protesters with “Fight Antisemitism” t-shirts packed the front row at the Barclays Center in response. 

Despite the backlash of his tweet, Irving defended his post.

 “I can post whatever I want,” Irving said during a combative press opportunity Saturday with NBA reporter, Nick Friedell. 

After the front row protest, the Nets made the basketball star unavailable to speak with the media following Brooklyn’s 116-109 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Monday.

During the first game of the playoffs last season, Irving was fined $50,000 for his behavior towards the energetic Boston Celtics home crowd. Irving was seen on video flipping off fans and even telling a heckler to “suck my d*ck b*tch,” on his way to the locker room.

Irving is head and shoulders the most thickheaded and ignorant sports athletes in the world. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar even called him a “comical buffoon” and a dumb jock back in October.

Irving is allowing his talent as a basketball player go to waste from what he does off the court. The NBA champion is seemingly doing everything in his power to derail his career for no good reason at all. He is everything wrong with professional athletes in 2022 … ignorant, rude, misinformed and pompous.

Once he retires from the league or is cut by the Brooklyn Nets, the NBA will be better off.
