WATCH: Joy Reid Absolutely Torches Anti-Vax NBA Star Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving is a marvelously talented basketball player. He is also the sport’s biggest contrarian. The Brooklyn Nets star has said in the past that he believes the Earth is flat. He forced a trade away from LeBron James so he could have the spotlight on himself. And months after telling Celtics fans Boston was where he wanted to be, he signed with Brooklyn.

So it was no surprise to see Irving refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine. He has painted himself as a victim as his team has told him they don’t want him around until he gets his shot. Joy Reid, though, says Irving is no victim.

Noting that some had compared his sacrifice to that of Muhammad Ali, the MSNBC host told viewers, “Kyrie Irving is not the modern-day Muhammad Ali. He is a famous person, using his famous person platform, to put others at risk of a deadly airborne disease, that has wreaked havoc on the human race and disproportionately on people who look like Kyrie Irving.”

Reid continued:

“Kyrie Irving is the literal opposite of Muhammad Ali. He is a person who once said the world is flat. And who is now being used as a pawn for the alt-Right and MAGA army. Like Ted Cruz — who’s praising him for his incredible courage, but who called Colin Kaepernick a ‘rich spoiled athlete’ for taking a knee against police killing people who look like Kyrie Irving.”
