Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Responded to Kyrie Irving’s Basketball Suspension After Posting a Video Allegedly Anti-Semitic
He says the baller is being used to spread hatred.
Last week, Kareem also used his substack to convict Irving.
“Honestly, there is little hope [Irving] will change because he is isolated from fame and money and surrounded by yes men,” he wrote. “There is no motivation to learn how to distinguish propaganda from fact. All that’s left is for the world to decide how to respond to him.”
This isn’t the first time Kareem has criticized Irving.
“Kyrie Irving would be dismissed as a comical buffoon were it not for his influence on young people who look up to athletes,” Kareem wrote.
“When I look at some of the athletes who have used their status to actually improve society – Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James, Muhammad Ali, Bill Russel, Billie Jean King, Arthur Ashe and more – it becomes clear how much Irving believes in the Society has tarnished the reputation of all athletes striving to be seen as more than dumb jocks.”
