#FakeWoke Kyrie is back.
Back in February, Kyrie Irving claimed that the Earth may indeed be flat while speaking on Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye’s ‘Road Tripping Podcast’.
Then in September, Kyrie claimed that he wasn’t necessarily standing by his earlier comments BUT he wanted to start a dialogue:
“Look, look. Here it is. All I want to do is be able to have that open conversation. It was all an exploitation tactic. It literally spun the world — your guy’s world — it spun it into a frenzy and proved exactly what I thought it would do in terms of how all this works. It created a division, or, literally stand up there and let all these people threw tomatoes at me, or have somebody think I’m somehow a different intellectual person because I believe that the Earth is flat and you think the world is round. It created exactly that.”
Last week, Kyrie was a guest on UCONN Women’s Basketball coach Geno Auriemma’s new ‘Holding Court Podcast’ and wanted to clarify his comments about the Earth’s shape:
“The whole intent behind it, Coach, it wasn’t to bash science. It wasn’t to like have the intent of starting a rage and be seen as this insane individual. When I started seeing comments and things about universal truths that I had known, like I had questions.”
Kyrie went on to say he’s done the research and that there are NO REAL PICTURES OF EARTH:
“When I started actually doing research on my own and figuring out that there is no real picture of Earth, not one real picture of Earth — and we haven’t been back to the moon since 1961 or 1969 — it becomes like conspiracy, too.”
There are indeed many real pictures of Earth.
As a Celtics fan, I’m just gonna go ahead and say Kyrie is playing with everyone and you’re all being punked. Keep balling Kyrie and uh just relax with the Earth stuff.
