After the Brooklyn Nets made the official announcement of banning their star guard Kyrie Irving from playing or practicing with the team, fans took to Twitter to give their own opinions on the situation.

While the Nets’ General Manager Sean Marks revealed in the statement that the team supports Irving’s decisions, it appears that not all fans are content with the way this has played out. The situation has left many NBA supporters divided, with some showing their support to Irving while others have made jokes. In the past, Irving has not officially commented on the matter and has often avoided directly answering questions surrounding his vaccination status as he said he would rather keep these matters private.

His decision has seemingly affected the Nets’ roster and has led fans to take polarizing positions on Twitter. Check out some of the reactions to Kyrie Irving and the Nets below.
