Nike cuts ties with Irving over 'antisemitic views'

Apparel giant Nike Inc. ended its partnership with Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving a month after suspending the deal due to Irving endorsing content with "antisemitic views."

The decision, revealed by The Athletic on Monday, comes about a month after Irving shared an "antisemitic" documentary film on his social media profiles, receiving criticism from his club and the NBA. He also endorsed Alex Jones' controversial movie "New World Order."

"At Nike, we believe there is no place for hate speech and we condemn any form of antisemitism," the company stated explaining its decision. Irving missed eight NBA games after receiving a suspension over his recent moves.
