Nets star Kyrie Irving was told to grab his basketball and take it home by his team for not getting the COIVD-19 vaccine. Over the weekend protesters stormed the Barclays Center showing support for his right to choose not to get vaccinated.
On Monday boxer Floyd Mayweather took to social media to show support for Kyrie. He read a prepared statement about freedom and the right to choose. Here's what he had to say.

First off I know Floyd didn't write this, but he did use his platform to relay the message. You're not going to hear any complaints from me on the message.
I've said this all along- you want to get the vaccine, got get it and if you don't want it, don't get it. It's really a simple concept for me, I'm not telling anyone what to do and I don't want anyone telling me what to do.
