Boston Celtics player Kyrie Irving is in full support of professional ballplayers disrespecting our flag, by kneeling during our national anthem. He also doesn’t appear to have a problem with using vulgarity, as a way to disrespect the fans who pay his exorbitant salary…
Rather than apologize for shouting a profanity at a heckling fan while heading into the locker room at halftime of the Celtics game against the 76ers Friday, Irving instead said he takes “full responsibility” but does not regret making the comment.
“Hell no,” Irving told reporters when asked Sunday if he regrets his outburst. “[the fan was] man enough to record it on video, then that’s all him. I’m glad he got his [social media] name out there and then, kinda, 5 seconds of fame and it going viral — that’s the social media platform we live on. I take full responsibility what I said and excuse (to) the kids at home and you move on.”
Video surfaced Friday night showing Celtics players walking down the tunnel heading into the visitor’s locker room at Wells Fargo Center. As Irving walks into the frame, a fan yells, “Kyrie, where’s LeBron?” –NYDaily
Watch (Warning***Vulgar language is used in this video clip) :
Irving told reporters that he had no regrets. He blamed his vulgar comments on “being human” and being part of a “young team.”
When asked by reporters if Irving was going to be fined for his public vulgarity in front of NBA fans, he replied, “It’s up to the league at this point. But, like I said, I’m going to take full responsibility for what I said. I don’t have any regrets for it.”
In other words, I’m above the law and I get paid such an obscene amount of money, I don’t give a damn if I get fined…
