Nike drops Kyrie Irving from their company

 Kyrie Irving is still feeling the wrath of his post that included the documentary Hebrews to Negroes. The Brooklyn Nets star has been dropped by Nike for the post and the company announced it will not release his signature shoe.  

“At Nike, we believe there is no place for hate speech and we condemn any form of antisemitism,” Nike said in a prepared statement. “We are deeply saddened and disappointed by the situation and its impact on everyone.” 

To his credit, Kyrie did go on Instagram and issue an apology for his post. “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.” 

Apparently, that wasn’t enough and now he will be losing his shoe contract with Nike.
