Kyrie Irving Comes Out of Silence to Offer His ‘Profound Apologies’

“I am not an anti-Semite. I’ve never been. I have no hatred in my heart for the Jewish people or anyone who identifies as a Jew. I’m not anti-Jewish or anything like that.”

Suspended since November 3 for sharing a film filled with anti-Semitic tropes on his Twitter account and failing to apologize spontaneously, Kyrie Irving finally, he made a fitting apology to the Jewish community during his interview with journalist Ian Begley, on the New York channel SNY.

“I just want to focus on the damage I’ve caused or the impact I’ve had within the Jewish community. For posing any kind of threat, or possible threat, to the Jewish community, I want to deeply apologize for all my actions since this post was published.he has declared.

An influence to be used differently

The leader of the Nets has admitted that he has gone through difficult times, towards his family and loved ones. He also says he realized the impact he could have on his fans and the importance of using it wisely.

“It was difficult being at home with my family who saw all this and asked me questions. What wasn’t difficult was explaining myself because I know who I am, what I represent. But I think the hardest part is going through all of that, understanding the power of my voice, the influence that I have. I’m not anyone’s idol, but I’m a human being who wants to make an impact and change things. For this, I have to live responsibly and set a better example for our young people. For my generation and the previous one”.

During his suspension, Kyrie Irving also confided that he was able to meet leaders of the Jewish community but also from other horizons, the sum of which is the pride of the city of New York.

“It was a long learning curve to be honest with you, a lot of wounds that needed to be healed, a lot of discussions that needed to be held. And many thoughts. And I’ve had the chance to do that with amazing people from the Jewish community, the black community, the white community.”He added. “I have been trying to find a better perspective on how to live a more harmonious life. I am a man who defends peace. I don’t tolerate any hate speech or prejudice and I don’t want to be at a point where my position is misunderstood in terms of anti-Semitism or any other form of hatred against anyone in this world.

This interview should be the last step before his return to the courts, which should logically take place this Sunday, on the occasion of the Grizzlies reception.
