Kyrie: itt we discuss his latest horrible thing

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

This thread is for discussing whatever Kyrie did today that excites our outrage or scorn. Put it here, so we can verbally pelt him with well-deserved vituperation. Then maybe can all enjoy talking about hoops in the NBA Regular Season thread again without all his bad vibes.

wild that the kyrie and kanye situations are happening simultaneously, its not great

i’m not sure they’re entirely disconnected

they're maybe visiting the same places on the internet. it's not like BIPOC are immune to anti-semitism or haven't developed their own 'in-house' variations, so to speak.

ye has posted about kyrie a couple times in the past week now but im not sure there was a connection before that.

Spottie, Thursday, 3 November 2022 18:00 (one month ago) link

theres for sure a whole black anti semitic cosmology out there, tho it seems like kanye might be consuming the white version

lag∞n, Thursday, 3 November 2022 18:01 (one month ago) link

oy what a putz

check out the black hebrew israelites if youve not before they represent being way down the line of what kyrie is talking about, i think theyre just in ny/philly/dc, they pull up to busy public spots parks or whatnot in their crazy outfits and just get in the most insane verbal fights with absolutely everyone, ive see them make people so fucking mad before, quite a spectacle

Kyrie's character arc the most fascinating thing I've ever seen.

In 6 years dude went from an All-Star NBA PG who has yacht parties with all white women & no black women in sight to a vegan, muslim, native american, flat earth anti-vaxer & antisemitic black hebrew israelite.

The ADL is no longer accepting the $500,000 from Kyrie Irving, per the organization’s CEO Jonathan Greenblatt.

“After watching the debacle of a press conference, it’s clear that Kyrie feels no accountability for his actions. ADL cannot in good conscience accept his donation.”

- straight up repeats kyrie’s “I can’t be antisemitic if I know where I come from”
- laments that when others make racist comments, people leap to defend their character and all but excuse what they did, which is then exactly what he does for kyrie
- tries to point out that when don imus makes racist comments, people just forget about it and no one makes don imus go to meetings, when imus’s show was canceled the next day and within two days he had a meeting with the rutgers coach at the NJ governor’s mansion. all things that could be refreshed in one’s memory just by visiting wikipedia

💭 I told you guys that I don’t believe in sharing hurtful information. And I’ll continue to be that way but Kyrie apologized and he should be able to play. That’s what I think. It’s that simple. Help him learn- but he should be playing. What he’s asked to do to get back on
