Kyrie Irving remains unable to rejoin the Brooklyn Nets as his vaccine status remains unchanged. His decision not to get vaccinated due to city mandates inspired many to take to the streets at Barclays Center in New York and attempt to break into the stadium to cause a ruckus in protest. Professional boxer Floyd Mayweather took to his Twitter to voice his support of Kyrie Irving in a much calmer manner than the rabid fans in New York.
"I was going to post something on one of my social media pages but I decided to do it the old school way and read it out to you because you are a great person, great father, a great athlete and you believe what you believe. "America is the land of the free. Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and supposedly, freedom to choose. Never be controlled by money. I respect you for having some integrity and being your own man. A free mind makes his own choices and an enslaved mind follows the crowd. Stand for something or fall for anything. One man can lead a revolution to stand up and fight for what’s right. One choice, one word, one action can change the world. It’s crazy how people hate you for being a leader. I hope your actions encourage many others to stand up and say ‘enough is enough.’
