Brooklyn Nets registered their second win of the NBA 2022-23 season after defeating Indiana Pacers 116-109 on Monday at the Barclays Center in New York City. However, some fans were spotted wearing 'FIGHT ANTISEMITISM' shirts to mock Nets star guard Kyrie Irving, who recently promoted an anti-Semitic film on social media.

On Thursday, the 30-year-old Kyrie Irving tweeted about a movie called 'Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America', which is based on a 'venomous anti-Semitic book', according to Rolling Stone. His tweet was condemned by Brooklyn Nets and its owner Joe Tsai on Saturday.

Following the Nets' Saturday night game against the Pacers, Kyrie Irving said, "I'm not going to stand down on anything that I believe in," after being asked about promoting the anti-Semitic film.

During Nets' game against the Pacers on Monday night, a group of Jewish fans were spotted sitting at the courtside wearing 'FIGHT ANTISEMITISM' shirts and held a protest without chants and banners against Kyrie Irving. The seven-time NBA All-Star appeared to give a thumbs up to the protesting fans and reportedly said, "Grateful for you guys."

Talking about the game, Kyrie Irving scored 28 points in his 43 minutes of appearance with six rebounds and assists each while his teammate Kevin Durant was the scoring leader with 36 points, nine rebounds and seven assists.
