Some fans wore ‘Fight Anti-Semitism’ T-shirts at the Brooklyn Nets’ game against the Indiana Pacers after Kyrie Irving was criticised for a social media post about a film featuring anti-Jewish tropes.

The group was sat courtside at the Barclays Center in New York as Irving scored 26 points in a 116-109 win that ended a four-game losing run.

Nets coach Steve Nash said he wants his players to “grow and understand new perspectives”.

At the weekend guard Irving said “he embraces all religions” after Nets owner Joe Tsai criticised his post.

Tsai said “he was disappointed” that Irving drew attention to a film he called “full of anti-Semitic disinformation”, and the NBA put out a statement condemning all forms of hate speech.
