Kyrie Irving He may have been suspended for promoting a film based on anti-Semitic themes, but there is still a huge platform that is not only pushing the film but also making a profit.
“Negro to Hebrews: Wake Up Black America!” Listed on Amazon for users to rent for $10.99 or shop for $48.99. We’ve reached out to Amazon, asking if the company has any plans to limit access or remove the film altogether, and have received no response.
While criticism has been received for promoting Kyrie, first and foremost, refuse to condemn Anti-Semitism is justified in the film… there’s no public outcry for Amazon to jolt.
In fact, Amazon’s listing for the movie even includes a “watch and chat with others” feature — which makes it available for other TVs/movies — but it makes it so easy to spread hate.
What’s more – on Friday, both the Brooklyn Nets and the Anti-Defamation League asked Jeff Bezos and Amazon leaders to remove the film.
As we mentioned, Kyrie is currently serving Minimum 5 game suspension “We were disappointed today, when given an opportunity in a media session, after the Brooklyn Nets said on Thursday, that Kyrie refused to explicitly state that he has no anti-Semitic beliefs, nor does he have any anti-Semitism. He only acknowledged the specific hateful material in the film. This was not the first time he had the opportunity – but failed – to articulate.”
Just a few hours after Nets’ announcement, Kyrie Tried Another ApologySaying, “To all the Jewish families and communities hurt and affected by my post… I am deeply sorry for causing you pain, and I do apologize.”
Apology has received mixed reviews with many sentiments it was not honest With a “Sorry if I hurt your feelings” vibe.
