Kyrie Irving Addresses The People Who Pulled The Race Card Because Of His Yacht Party
It’s extremely unfortunate when people pull the race card when it’s not needed and this is a prime example of it. A few days ago, Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving was in the midst of celebrating an NBA title with a yacht party. Seems innocent enough.
That was until a video was dropped on social media of the party and while most saw people having a good time, others saw only white women on the boat with no other shades of women. So women were upset that other races of women weren’t on the boat being slutty. Got it.

Eventually, social media spun this thing completely around and false reports of the yacht party being called ‘no black women allowed’ surfaced immediately after.
Having heard enough of the slander, Kyrie Irving took to Facebook to clear the air of this nonsense:
“I’d never think I would have to address something as ridiculous as a yacht party, but I wasn’t raised to discriminate against any race let alone any race of women, especially my own. I was raised by the black women in my family and for me to be connected to some nonsense like a “No black girls allowed” party is embarrassing and an inaccurate portrayal of who and what I represent as man. I wasn’t going to even address any of this because there are literally a million things going on in the world right now that are far more important, rather than people trying to bring question to my character. I would like to apologize to anyone if they were offended initially without knowing any of what actually happened, but that story has no truth to it and I wanted to clear the air on all of this B.S. And for those who know me, I’m sorry you all had to answer questions about a story as ridiculous as something like this. But now, I would like to continue celebrating this championship. Thank you.”
