Floyd Mayweather in Kyrie Irving’s Corner Over His Vaccine Stance

Floyd Mayweather is Team Kyrie all the way.

Brooklyn Nets controversial star Kyrie Irving is currently not playing, he was told to take a seat on the bench for not receiving the COIVD-19 vaccine. This past weekend protesters took to the Barclays Center to show support for Kyrie’s right not to get the vaccine.

Undefeated Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather is also taking Kyrie’s side. Mayweather took to social media to explain why he’s backing the NBA star. Mayweather read a prepared statement in Kyrie’s defense.

“Choice is defined as an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities. To my understanding, America gave us the choice to take the vaccine or not take the vaccine originally. As time moves on, that choice is gradually being stripped from us. Limiting the jobs we can do, places we can go, and activities we can perform. Trying to beat us into submission of what they say is best for us. It’s sad people are hated, punished, teased, and discriminated for not taking the vaccine, for making their own choice, standing up for what they not only think is right, but know is right for them and their families. I am Pro Choice. A person should be free to make the decision best suited for themself. If we can’t make our own decisions we are not truly free. Our forefathers, fought for our freedom as our soldiers, first responders, and patriots continue to do to this day. Why is it when someone decides to do something differently from what we are told, it is right we condemn them? Condemn them for making a choice, choosing to be free, choosing to not conform to the norms society tells us to conform to. I’m Pro Choice, we all should have a right to choose what we want, what is best for ourselves, what is best for our our loved ones! If you decide to take the vaccine fine. If you decide to not take the vaccine fine. Rather respect should be earned by everyone who makes their own choice and chooses liberty! For myself, my children, my loved ones…I choose life, I choose liberty, I choose freedom!”

Not sure anyone wants Floyd’s endorsement, it doesn’t necessarily make you look any better. Secondly, no chance Floyd wrote this, the guy has a history of having a tough time reading.

Kyrie has a choice, and so do his employer’s, it’s that simple.
