Kyrie Irving appears to have gotten himself in trouble with Nets owner Joe Tsai.

On Friday afternoon, Irving, who is close friends with Kanye West, endorsed a book/ called “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake up Black America.”

Irving was immediately called out for sharing what many feel is an anti-semitic book/film that promotes conspiracy theories about Jewish people.

The Nets issued a statement regarding Kyrie’s endorsing of the book.

“The Brooklyn Nets strongly condemn and have no tolerance for the promotion of any form of hate speech. We believe that in these situations, our first action must be open, honest dialogue. We thank those, including the ADL, who have been supportive during this time.”

Even Nets owner Joe Tsai issued a statement on Twitter regarding Kyrie’s post.
