Kyrie Irving brought a big stir when he refused to get vaccinated. That decision to remain the “voice of the voiceless” already cost him millions. Now he’s being labeled as an idiot by the world’s most famous DJ.
Howard Stern, the legendary radio host, stated that Kyrie Irving is the largest idiot in the country right now. Of course, Stern is referencing the highly publicized NBA star’s reluctance to get vaccinated. It was on his Sirius XM show that he unloaded on the NBA star. He said:
“He’s my favorite dude who’s putting his money where his mouths is…In terms of idiots, he’s gotta be the top idiot in the country right now. Guys got a chance as a young man to make millions of dollars, all he’s gotta do is get vaccinated…
“This guy’s got a history of being stupid…He’s one of those guys who is a flat-earther too. And he doesn’t know anything, his mind works in a very strange way. He says, ‘I can’t figure out gravity, so it doesn’t exist.’ …
“I don’t know who runs the Nets, but I wish they were running the country…I love this. Basically saying, ‘listen douchebag, you’ve got to do what is right.’”
Irving hasn’t been able to play or even practice with the Brooklyn Nets since he was banned due to the regulations regarding the Covid-19 vaccine in New York, and judging by his stance, as he has made it very public in recent weeks, it looks like he’s no closer to being back on the team.
This issue has undoubtedly affected many industries and even in sports, the issue of non-vaccinated players in many different sports being kept from making money because of this decision. It occurred at the start of the CFL football season this year as well, some players even falsifying documents to avoid getting the vaccine!
Howard Stern has always been a very vocal and controversial personality and this time, it seems as though he once again couldn’t keep his opinion to himself.
