Celtics' Kyrie Irving Became Flat-Earth Truther … Because Of Instagram?

Celtics' Kyrie Irving Became Flat-Earth Truther … Because Of Instagram?

Kyrie Irving, as you probably know by now, is - or used to be - a flat-Earth truther. For instance, the word dinosaur.

But I'm not entirely convinced dinosaurs existed. There was no word for dinosaur. "Like, just, different things, and I know you saw 'Loose Change, ' but some of the things that happened before that insane attack, like you think back on history and I'm just like, 'Man.' And they've gotten it to the point - and of course people will be like, 'Who's they?' Everyone who has basically controlled us, so ..." We've been roaming the earth, we've had multiple empires all over the world ... and all that time we didn't find any fossils until 150 years ago? It makes you think!

But perhaps the worst part of the podcast was when Redick spoke about the controversial documentary Loose Change, which throws out theories about 9/11 which have been widely debunked.

What was most revealing about the exchange, however, was the moment Irving crystalized his ideas on the subject. That's an hour-long documentary on 9/11. They came from watching videos on Instagram. "I don't necessarily think 9/11 was an inside job but there's some things that I question". The Philadelphia 76ers guard recently sat down with Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving to talk about a variety of topics, including conspiracy theories.

It's still highly probable that Irving is just trolling all of us because at this point, he has taken this whole thing to a certain point and it would be pointless to stop now and walk back his comments. They want to get us.' And when you start thinking about it, it's just like, the actual intent behind it was just like, 'Do your own research.' You know what I mean?

"I feel like that question was going to come", he said.
