Kyrie Irving apologized for supporting the Flat Earth theory in October 2018 and admitted to being a conspiracy theorist.
“I definitely said at the time, ‘I’m a big conspiracy theorist. You can’t tell me anything. Irving apologized at the time for pushing Flat Earth.
“Even if you believe it, don’t say it out loud. It’s for intimate conversations. I’m actually a smart individual,” he told an interviewer at the time. is flat…the earth is flat…it’s right in front of us.”
But now Irving probably sympathizes with one of America’s leading conspiracy theorists, Alex Jones. The lawsuit is currently pending in Connecticut by the parents of 20 children who were detained. A hoax and the work of a crisis manager. A jury in Texas has already ruled her $50 million on the family.
Specifically, Irving posted a video of Jones from ten years ago. Jones suggested that there was a conspiracy to release “disease and virus and plague” by an organization called “New World Order”. New York Basketball first reported in this post…
“There is a tyrannical organization that calls itself the New World Order … basically pushing us into their system by releasing diseases and viruses and plagues on us.”

Here’s a full commentary by Jones that was exclusive to Community Access TV…
Around the same time, Jones blamed Israel for the 9-11 attacks.
The post is the latest in a long history of controversial behavior, statements and social media postings in Irving’s career, and last year’s vaccination denial limited him to 29 games and 225 million. It was a roadblock in getting a dollar extension. He will become an unrestricted free agent next July.
