Nike Suspends Contract With Kyrie Irving, Won’t Release The Kyrie 8

Nike has chosen to suspend its contract with Brooklyn Nets player Kyrie Irving in the wake of the uproar over his social media post regarding a book and movie containing antisemitic views.

Nike also announced that they would no longer distribute Irving’s most recent sneaker, the Kyrie 8.

Nike said in a prepared statement, “We think there is no place for hate speech and reject all forms of antisemitism.” We are very concerned and dismayed by the situation’s effects on everyone.

Since 2014, Irving, who is 30 years old, has had a deal with Nike.
