The Brooklyn Nets have suspended Kyrie Irving for a minimum of five games after he reaffirmed his unwillingness to retract his earlier tonight tweet that contained a link to an anti-Semitic propaganda DVD.
The frequently criticized point guard seemed to have considered the seriousness of his conduct, though. Irving has changed his mind about initially refusing to provide a sincere apology in a message on his official Instagram account. Irving expressed his “deep regret” for hurting the Jewish community.
Irving added, “I take full accountability and responsibility for my conduct. I posted a documentary that featured some false anti-Semitic remarks, narratives, and language that were inaccurate and hurtful to the Jewish Race/Religion.
