Protestors supporting Kyrie Irving gather at Barclays Center
Protestors gathered at Barclays Center Sunday to rally against COVID-19 vaccine mandates in support of Nets star guard Kyrie Irving.
Irving refused to get the shot and has been sidelined by the team. Sunday was their first home game of the season vs. the Charlotte Hornets.
At one point the protestors even jumped over barricades and tried to force their way into Barclays Center to disrupt the fans who were heading inside.
Earlier this month the Brooklyn Nets said in a statement in part, “Kyrie has made a personal choice, and we respect his individual right to choose. Currently the choice restricts his ability to be a full-time member of the team."
