Jeff Bezos and Amazon are now being questioned for hosting an anti-semitic movie on their website.
Last week, NBA star Kyrie Irving found himself in hot water when he shared a movie called “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America!.”
Riding the celebrity wave of blatant antisemitism, @Net's basketball player and 'free thinker' Kyrie Irving boots movie/book “Hebrews to Negroes”, which spews classic #antisemitic tropes, like claiming European Jews control banking and media. 🤦♂️https://t.co/upaMu4m21i

Irving eventually apologized for sharing the movie on Twitter after getting suspended by the Brooklyn Nets.
"To All Jewish families and Communities that are hurt and affected from my post, I am deeply sorry to have caused you pain, and I apologize."

On Friday, the Brooklyn Nets and the Anti-Defamation League have now set their sights on Amazon and Jeff Bezos, demanding the movie be taken down from the site.
The Anti-Defamation League in conjunction with Brooklyn Nets have sent a letter to Jeff Bezos and Amazon leaders to either remove book/movie at center of Kyrie Irving situation from the platform or add explanation about issues with the content, sources tell me and @MikeVorkunov.
