Anti-Defamation League Rejects Kyrie Irving's $500K Donation

The Anti-Defamation league will not accept Kyrie Irving's $500,000 donation due to Irving not offering an apology during Thursday's press conference.

"We were optimistic but after watching the debacle of a press conference, it's clear that Kyrie feels no accountability for his actions. @ADL cannot in good conscience accept (the donation)," tweeted ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt.

Irving took responsibility for linking to an antisemitic film on social media during the press conference, though offered no apology.

Irving was suspended for at least 5 games without pay by the Nets later in the day.

The ADL had released a statement on Wednesday in which the Nets and Irving both pledged to donate $500,000 to the organization.

It is not clear whether the ADL will accept the Nets' donation.
