American boxer, former WBC, WBA, WBC and WBO world champion in various weight classes, 45-year-old Floyd Mayweather Jr. recorded a video message to Brooklyn Nets quarterback Kyrie Irving. The 30-year-old basketball player has been suspended for five games by his NBA club after not publicly apologizing for posting a link to an anti-Semitic film on his social media account.
Mayweather showed his support for Irving, who was banned from five appearances in Brooklyn for spreading anti-Semitic content online.
– Kairi, how are you? I know it’s hard for you. You and I had the opportunity to speak while representing the United States in the 2016 Olympics. You want to be treated fairly.
I was going to post it on my social media, but I decided to do it the old fashioned way and read it to you because you are a great man, a great father, a great athlete, a great athlete who believes in his principles.
America is a land of free people, never dominated by money. Freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of choice are believed to exist. I respect you for being honest and being yourself.
