Kyrie Irving's Instagram message for Celtics fans

Irving took to his Instagram and fired back at Celtics fans for the 'Kyrie sucks' chants with a post on ‘LIFE’.

“It happens all the time and Tonight just shows how Sports/Entertainment will always be ignorant and obtrusive. It’s one big SHOW that means very little in the real world,” Irving wrote in a lengthy Instagram post. “It’s about doing it for the fans and organization that love you so much? Think again, it’s a GAME, and it’s promoted as a Fandom experience for ticket buyers and viewers at home while defacing who people truly are as PEOPLE.”
