(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) The Anti-Defamation League, the NBA, The Brooklyn Nets, and Nike have conspired to cancel Kyrie Irving because of his controversial opinions in the latest saga of cancel culture.
After Kyrie Irving’s heated exchange with a reporter accusing him of antisemitism, the owner of the Brooklyn Nets hired the Anti-Defamation League to confront Kyrie about his allegedly antisemitic views, according to ESPN.
After a week of browbeating, Irving did not change his opinion and was thus indefinitely suspended. The Nets said Irving will remain suspended “until he satisfies a series of objective remedial measures that address the harmful impact of his conduct.”
The Nets released a statement on Irving. It read, “Such failure to disavow antisemitism when given a clear opportunity to do so is deeply disturbing, is against the values of our organization, and constitutes conduct detrimental to the team.”
The Nets concluded that “he is currently unfit to be associated with the Brooklyn Nets.”
Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Antidefamation League, attacked Irving. He said, “The answer to the question ‘Do you have any antisemitic beliefs’ is always “NO” without equivocation,” according to ESPN. Greenblatt continued, “We took @KyrieIrving at his word when he said he took responsibility, but today he did not make good on that promise.” Greenblatt added, “Kyrie clearly has a lot of work to do.”
Adam Silver, the commissioner of the NBA, piled on, “While we appreciate the fact that he agreed to work with the Brooklyn Nets and the Anti-Defamation League to combat antisemitism and other forms of discrimination, I am disappointed that he has not offered an unqualified apology.” Silver demanded Irving, “denounced the vile and harmful content contained in the film he chose to publicize.”
Joining the ADL and the other woke corporations, Nike decided to pile on. Nike canceled its relationship with Irving and canceled the release of his latest shoe line, according to MSN. Nike said, “At Nike, we believe there is no place for hate speech, and we condemn any form of antisemitism…We are deeply saddened and disappointed by the situation and its impact on everyone.”
