Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving is no stranger to controversy. In fact, he kind of welcomes it in every situation he’s ever been in.
So it’s no real surprise that Irving is taking a seemingly unpopular stance when it comes to the protective masks people wear against COVID-19.
On Wednesday, Irving took to social media to ask people to stop wearing their masks because it was time to have “no fear”.
My mask is off. Now take yours off. No fear.

Immediately, fans who assumed Kyrie Irving was talking about COVID protocols trashed him over the “masks” tweet.
I just unfollowed you for this. So many people (black folks in particular) dying of COVID-19 & you have the nerve to tell them to take their masks off? Shame on you Kyrie. I really thought you were a leader. My children looked up to you. I'm truly heartbroken & done with you💔

Can’t tell if he was dumb enough to post one of his pseudo intellectual quotes that’ll be taken outta context or if he is an actual anti masker https://t.co/x1VVazoJBe

Now, we’ll likely never know if Kyrie Irving was talking about the masks used to prevent COVID from spreading, or if he was just using some sort of metaphor.
Either way, he had to know that he was going to create a whole stir with this post.
Kyrie Irving just never seems to be able to read the room all too well.
