Irving has since apologized for the content he posted on social media.

To All Jewish families and Communities that are hurt and affected from my post, I am deeply sorry to have caused you pain, and I apologize, Kyrie Irving, via Instagram.

I initially reacted out of emotion to being unjustly labeled Anti-Semitic, instead of focusing on the healing process of my Jewish Brothers and Sisters that were hurt from the hateful remarks made in the Documentary, Kyrie Irving, via Instagram.

I had no intentions to disrespect any Jewish cultural history regarding the Holocaust or perpetuate any hate.

I am learning from this unfortunate event and hope we can find understanding between us all, Kyrie Irving, via Instagram
