Kanye West Posts Kyrie Irving Pic After Addressing Antisemitic Movie Backlash

Kanye West is doubling down on his support for Kyrie Irving … sharing a pic of the NBA star as they both find themselves embroiled in controversy over pushing antisemitic rhetoric.

The Brooklyn Nets guard released a statement denouncing “all forms of hate and oppression” and vowed to make a $500k donation to fight for the cause on Wednesday … after facing a ton of backlash for posting a link to a movie that is filled with hurtful beliefs toward the Jewish community.

While KI took responsibility for his actions … but did not flat-out say “I’m sorry” or “I apologize.”

Just six hours later, Ye went to his Twitter account and posted a black and white image of Kyrie to his 31.7 million followers … seemingly backing the athlete for the second time in three days.

Ye previously backed Irving on Sunday … posting a different black-and-white image of him and saying, “There’s some real ones still here.”

While Irving has stated he wasn’t “promoting” the beliefs in the movie, West has been dealing with a crap storm of his own over the past few weeks after making antisemitic remarks that resulted in Balenciaga, CAA and Adidas all cutting ties with him.
