07 Dec Nike Ends Endorsement Deal With Kyrie Irving
Nike ended its endorsement deal with Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving. The move comes a month after Irving shared a link on Twitter to a film containing antisemitic material.
News of Nike ending its contract was reported in The Athletic.
After Irving shared the link, the Nets suspended the All-Star guard and Nike “suspended” its relationship with him.
Irving was one of five NBA players who had a signature shoe deal with Nike and had one of the brand’s most popular basketball sneakers.
