CelebnSports247.com reports that Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving has been completely MIA because he was upset over “everything that is going in this country’ following the US Capitol riot.”
Not to mention the recent trade that added James Harden to the Nets. Kyrie was not pleased since he was left out of the loop.
Well, Jackie MacMullan took liberties using her white privilege eyes by weighing in on a situation that she knows and understands nothing about.
During Ryen Russillo’s podcast, “MacMullan relayed a story how she got into an argument with Irving years ago about the NBA draft. Kyrie told her that players should be able to go to any team that would like to because “we’re not someone’s property.”
MacMullan fired back and said:
Yeah, you are dude that’s the way it works, that’s why you get paid millions of dollars.
i love jackie mac but oh boy did she put her foot in it here. i think that this is probably more than anything a reflection of her age and the way athletes were viewed when she was coming up. but its a perfect example of passive/cultural racism. https://t.co/suvXnPsNml
