Nets owner disappointed Irving endorsed anti-Semitic work | WGN 720 Radio

NEW YORK (AP) — Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai said Friday that he is disappointed that Kyrie Irving appears to be supporting a movie “based on a book full of anti-Semitic misinformation.”

The Nets star guard tweeted a link to the movie “Jews Are Negroes: Wake Up Black America” ​​on Twitter on Thursday. The synopsis on Amazon states that the film “reveals the true identity of the children of Israel.”

Tsai and the Nets were quick to respond to the latest issue raised by Irving, who previously supported the idea of ​​a flat Earth and last month shared an old clip from conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on social media.

“I want to sit down and make sure he understands that this is offensive to all of us and as a person of faith it is wrong to promote hate based on race, ethnicity or religion,” Tsai tweeted about Irving.

Irving was unavailable for most of the Nets’ home games last season because he refused a New York-mandated COVID-19 vaccination. The Nets then declined to extend his contract this summer, meaning Irving could be in his final season with the team.

“The Brooklyn Nets strongly condemn and do not tolerate any form of hate speech,” the team said in a statement. “We believe that in these situations, our first action should be an open, honest dialogue. We thank those, including the ADL, who have been supportive during this time.”
