Despite the seriousness of the injury, several NBA fans celebrated Isaac’s injury because he had decided to stand during the anthem a few days ago.

Jonathan Isaac decided to stand for the anthem when the rest of his team took a knee and then told folks that prayer will overcome racism…

Thankfully there were plenty of fans who admonished those who were giddy about Isaac’s knee injury.
Everyone that is laughing at or saying Jonathan Isaac getting injured is "karma" is straight up trash.

Saying that Jonathan Isaac having a torn ACL and him not kneeling was karma is a nasty way to view it. This isn’t a joke. Hoping that he recovers soon.
