Kyrie Irving does not regret telling Sixers fan to ‘suck my d—‘
The 76ers fan asked Irving where LeBron James was and Irving quickly replied with ‘Suck my d—.’
Here’s a look at the video:
Irving has since commented on the incident, and somewhat surprisingly he wasn’t too sorry about it.
“Hell no. Man enough to record it on video, then that’s all him. I’m glad that he got his @ name out there and then kinda 5 seconds of fame and it going viral, that’s the social media platform we live on. I take full responsibility what I said and excuse the kids at home and you move on.”
New Orleans Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins was today fined $25,000 for a similar incident in which he dropped F-bombs directed at a fan. So it won’t be surprising if Irving endures a similar punishment from the league in the next day or two, especially since he isn’t even apologetic about it.
Irving of course made headlines this summer when he requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James. A deal got done to send him to the Celtics, who he’s helped to a 1-2 start to the year, with one of the losses coming to the Cavs.
