Kyrie Irving Gets Racist Attack After Posting Picture of Sitting Bull

Kyrie Irving is one of the most popular athletes in the country. He has a huge contract and big shoe deal. And he also happens to have Native American roots. Irving lived in the Melbourne before relocating to the United States when he was two years old. He holds dual American and Australian citizenship. His mother, who was half Sioux, died of an illness when he was four.

Kyrie recently posted a pic of Sitting Bull on his IG.

And let’s just say the comments weren’t very nice. See below:


All of those people need some education. Sad, and maddening at the same time. Kyrie is one of the most polarizing athletes in the world. He needs to get back on the court to remind everyone just how special of a player he is. 

people who are filled with hate are going to hate regardless. It’s just how the internet works.
