NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Kyrie Irving came up with a cryptic tweet on Sunday, November 13, 2022, after he was suspended from Brooklyn Nets over his antisemitic tweet. Irvings was banned by the team recently "until he satisfies a series of objective remedial measures that address the harmful impact of his conduct," after he tweeted a link to an Amazon page of a movie titled 'Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America', which is based on a 2015 book of the same name and widely considered antisemitic.

Now, the Nets star has again landed in a soup after he tweeted, "I was not put here on earth to participate in any religious/political wars or incite racial disharmony/prejudice within communities. We are all equal under the sun and I am here to participate in the building of an Equal world and follow the Word from the Most High/GOD/YAH."

Though there were rumors that he might make his comeback on Sunday, November 13, 2022, against Los Angeles Clippers, the new coach Jacque Vaughn revealed that Irving will not be back. However, Nets owner Joe Tsai also had a brief meeting with the controversial star. According to DailyMail, Tsai said, "We spent quality time to understand each other, and it's clear to me that Kyrie does not have any beliefs of hate towards Jewish people or any group. The Nets and Kyrie, together with the NBA and NBPA, are working constructively toward a process of forgiveness, healing and education."

Though Irving did not apologize for the remarks initially, later he released an apology statement on the same. He said, "While doing research on YHWH, I posted a Documentary that contained some false anti-Semitic statements, narratives, and language that were untrue and offensive to the Jewish Race/Religion, and I take full accountability and responsibly for my actions. I am grateful to have a big platform to share knowledge and I want to move forward by having an open dialogue to learn more and grow from this."

Further, he added, "To All Jewish families and Communities that are hurt and affected from my post, I am deeply sorry to have caused you pain, and I apologize. I initially reacted out of emotion to being unjustly labeled Anti-Semitic, instead of focusing on the healing process of my Jewish Brothers and Sisters that were hurt from the hateful remarks made in the Documentary. I had no intentions to disrespect any Jewish cultural history regarding the Holocaust or perpetuate any hate. I am learning from this unfortunate event and hope we can find understanding between us all. I am no different than any other human being. I am a seeker of truth and knowledge, and I know who I Am."

According to Daily Mail, earlier, Nets also said in a statement, "We have decided that Kyrie will serve a suspension without pay until he satisfies a series of objective remedial measures that address the harmful impact of his conduct and the suspension period served is no less than five games. We were dismayed today, when given an opportunity in a media session, that Kyrie refused to unequivocally say he has no antisemitic beliefs, nor acknowledge specific hateful material in the film. This was not the first time he had the opportunity - but failed - to clarify. Such failure to disavow antisemitism when given a clear opportunity to do so is deeply disturbing, is against the values of our organization, and constitutes conduct detrimental to the team. Accordingly, we are of the view that he is currently unfit to be associated with the Brooklyn Nets."

'Bruh just retire already'

The Internet quickly reacted to the cryptic tweet. A user said, "Please apologize for your actions. And for affection millions by not taking the vaccine." "Bruh just retire already, nets are better without you," claimed another.

Another stated, "What you're saying doesn't reflect on what you're doing. Stupid." A tweet read, "YOU ARE A ANTISEMITE!!!!." "Imagine I used to look up to you," claimed another.

A user explained, "Then why tweet that movie link & cause the issue the nba has to deal with? So unnecessary! For you not to apologize right away is concerning at best!." "What is the shape of your equal world?" asked another user. 

A user added, "You did though. You accomplished the opposite of your stated purpose. Take a moment to read some of the vitriol that people feel a license to share as a means of “not backing down”. You served as a beacon of hatred and pain. You set a terrible example of a good human. Do better."
