ADL Announces Decision on Kyrie Irving's $500,000 Donation
Looks like Kyrie Irving isn't bringing her checkbook at all.
Irving, who faced criticism for promoting the anti-Semitic film on Twitter, donated $500,000 to
organizations working to end hatred and intolerance in communities before the ADL stepped in. were ready to do.
ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said that his organization cannot accept Irving's donation
because he believes Irving does not regret anything he has done.
Greenblatt tweeted, "We were optimistic but after witnessing a press conference defeat,
it is clear that Kyrie feels no accountability for his actions. @ADL cannot in good conscience accept his donation."
Irving came under criticism last week after promoting the film "Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America" on his Twitter page.
This is a film that has been widely condemned as anti-Semitic.
Irving then held a press conference on Thursday and refused to apologize to everyone that he had been hurt.
This led the Nets to suspend Irving without pay for at least five games.
