Kyrie Irving, who promoted anti-Semitic films, eventually apologized
Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving, who caused a stir by promoting anti-Semitic movies on Twitter, appears to have admitted her fault.
Local media, including “ESPN,” said on the 2nd that Irving and his team Netz club will spend $500,000 each to donate “to institutions working to eradicate hatred and bigotry in our society.” They made the announcement in a statement with the Anti-Defamation League.
Irving caused a stir on his Twitter account last Thursday local time by posting a link to an Amazon site that introduces a movie titled “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America.” The movie is known to convey dangerous messages that have not been verified, such as “Jews are at the root of black discrimination.”
There was a backlash, with Brooklyn’s owner Joe Chai expressing concerns himself, and Irving eventually deleted Twitter, ending the case.
In the statement, Irving said, “I am aware of the negative impact of my post on the Jewish community, and I feel responsible. I don’t think what’s in the movie is true or reflects my moral beliefs. I am learning through the journey of life and I am willing to listen to the words around me with an open mind. My family and I have no intention of harming any group, race or religion. “I hope there will be only signs of truth and light,” he said. 사설토토
