Amazon is reportedly under pressure to either remove or add a disclaimer to the film “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America,” which NBA star Kyrie Irving had seemingly thrown his support behind after sharing a tweet about the movie on social media

Amazon is reportedly under pressure to either remove or add a disclaimer to the film “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America,” which NBA star Kyrie Irving had seemingly thrown his support behind after sharing a tweet about the movie on social media. 

The film has since become a bestseller, dethroning all other documentaries on Amazon Video, while skyrocketing in popularity. As previously revealed, Kyrie was suspended for a minimum of five games earlier this month over claims he was spewing hatred onto the Jewish community by endorsing the flick.

Furthermore, Nike suspended its relationship with Kyrie and said they were canceling its plans to release his next signature shoe because of the controversy. And now, it appears as if the attention is diverting back to Amazon, who, according to The New York Times, is being called out for allowing the film to still be on its platform, which the Anti-Defamation League say is incredibly offensive to Jews.

In a letter sent to Amazon, they wrote, “The book and the film are designed to inflame hatred and, now that it was popularized by Mr. Irving, will lead directly to the harm of Jews.” The viewpoints in the film are not said to be focused on true historic events; instead, “they are outright antisemitic hate. They amplify longstanding antisemitic tropes about Jewish power, greed, and claims that Jews control the media.”
