Brooklyn Nets player Kyrie Irving uploaded a link to an anti-semitic movie, and the team has expressed their "disappointment."
The seven-time NBA All-Star posted a link to a three-hour film called "Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America" on Twitter.
According to Rolling Stone, the 2018 movie is "packed with anti-Semitic stereotypes," and the Brooklyn Nets administration reacted quickly in the wake of his remark.
To publicly denounce Irving, Nets owner Joe Tsai released the following statement: "I'm disturbed that Kyrie appears to promote a film based on a book full of anti-Semitic misinformation.
As a man of faith, I want to sit him down and explain how this is hurtful to all of us and that it is unacceptable to advocate hatred based on race, nationality, or religion.
Irving's post, which was shared more than 1,000 times thanks to the 30-year-4.5 old's million followers, was followed by the Nets' own statement, which was then followed by Tsai's own statement.
