Chris Rock Rips ‘Dumb’ Kyrie Irving Over His COVID Vaccination Stance

The ‘Grown Ups’ star takes aim at the Brooklyn Nets star and other anti-vaxxers while introducing The Strokes ahead of their performance at the Brooklyn Steel.

AceShowbiz -It’s suffice to say that Chris Rock is not a fan of Kyrie Irving in the wake of his controversial vaccination stance. The actor/comedian has slammed the NBA star as the latter remains unvaccinated against COVID-19.

Chris took the Brooklyn Steel stage on Wednesday night, November 3 to introduce band The Strokes ahead of their performance at an NFT Week event. He took the opportunity to call out anti-vaxxers, including the Brooklyn Nets player.

“I haven’t seen any shows since COVID,” the “Spiral (2021): From the Book of Saw” star said. “Has anybody been like, ‘Throw your mask in the air, and wave it like you just don’t care?’ Where’s my anti-vaxxers at?”

Surprisingly, the question drew cheers from the audience, though NYC requires vaccinations to attend show like this. It prompted the 56-year-old to rip those anti-vaxxers as saying, “Where you at? You f**king dumb, Kyrie mother**kers.”

Kyrie has been banned from the Barclays Center as he remains unvaccinated. Additionally, he is not cleared to practice and play with his team members until he is vaccinated.

“It’s not about being anti-vax or about being on one side or the other. It’s about being true to what feels good for me. I’m still uncertain about a lot of things,” he explained during an Instagram Live in October. “And that’s OK. If I’m going to be demonized about having more questions and taking my time to make a decision with my life, then that’s just what it is.”

“It’s not about the money, baby. It’s about choosing what’s best for you. You think I really want to lose money? You think I really want to give up on my dream to go after a championship? You think I really just want to give up my job?” the seven-time All-Star further stressed. “You think I really just want to sit at home and not go after the things with my teammates that I’ve been able to grow with, to learn with?”
