The Anti-Defamation League and the Brooklyn Nets put out a statement on Wednesday announcing that Kyrie Irving has agreed to be re-educated by ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt and pay $500,000 towards "causes and organizations that work to eradicate hate and intolerance."
The $500,000 tax, which they're calling a "donation," is being matched by the Brooklyn Nets to bring the ADL's total haul to $1 million.
Greenblatt described the shakedown as an "opportunity" for Irving to "learn and do better."
The full statement reads:
BROOKLYN (Nov. 2, 2022) — The events of the past week have sparked many emotions within the Nets organization, our Brooklyn community, and the nation. The public discourse that followed has brought greater awareness to the challenges we face as a society when it comes to combating hate and hate speech. We are ready to take on this challenge and we recognize that this is a unique moment to make a lasting impact.When Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the national anthem and bashed white people, he was rewarded with a multi-million dollar endorsement deal from Nike, received universal acclaim from the media and was handed his own Netflix special.
When Kyrie Irving tweeted out a documentary talking about Jewish slave ship owners, he was universally hounded by the media and forced to pay the ADL a $500,000 tax.
