Kyrie Irving Says F**k Thanksgiving

On Wednesday, the Celtics hit a new low when they lost 117-109 to the New York Knicks, who came in with a record of 4-14. Following the game, Celtics star Kyrie Irving was either in a bad mood or he really meant what he said when somebody wished him a Happy Thanksgiving.

However, there is a reason:

“Irving’s family has roots with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota. His late mother was a part of the tribe and adopted out of it, while his grandparents and great-grandparents were citizens of Standing Rock.

To him and many others with Native American heritage, Thanksgiving does not represent a time to feast on the harvest, but rather it reminds them of the genocide and conquest of Native Americans by the colonists.”

What do you think?
