Accused of anti-Semitism, Kyrie Irving defends himself and makes a donation

Kyrie Irving created controversy last week by publishing on his social networks the poster of the documentary film by Ronald Dalton Jr ” Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America »adaptation made in 2018 of an eponymous book in which it is written that “many famous high-ranking Jews have admitted to worshiping Satan or Lucifer”.

On Wednesday, the leader of the Brooklyn Nets announced that he would donate $500,000 to associations working against hatred and intolerance. His training also indicated having made the same financial commitment.

“This label of anti-Semite that is stuck on me is not justified”

Without really apologizing, Kyrie Irving, who had withdrawn his publications last weekend, defended himself for having supported this anti-Semitic film. “I am aware of the negative impact of my message on the Jewish community and I take responsibility for it, he developed. I don’t believe anything said in the film was true or reflects my morals and principles. I did not mean to harm any group, race or religion, I only wish to be a beacon of truth and light. This label of anti-Semite that is stuck on me is not justified and does not reflect the reality or the truth in which I live every day. I embrace all backgrounds and all religions, I want to learn from them. »

At this time, neither the Nets nor the League have announced whether Kyrie Irving will be subject to disciplinary action. The NBA only condemned anti-Semitism, but never named the Brooklyn star.
