NBA’s Kyrie Irving Suspended For Not Clarifying Antisemitism Stance

“We were dismayed today, when given an opportunity in a media session, that Kyrie refused to unequivocally say he has no antisemitic beliefs, nor acknowledge specific hateful material in the film,” the statement continued. “This was not the first time he had the opportunity—but failed—to clarify.”

The team added that “such failure to disavow antisemitism when given a clear opportunity to do so is deeply disturbing” and that the behavior “is against the values of our organization, and constitutes conduct detrimental to the team.”

“Accordingly, we are of the view that he is currently unfit to be associated with the Brooklyn Nets,” the team said, adding that Irving will become an active player again once “he satisfies a series of objective remedial measures that address the harmful impact of his conduct.”
