Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Defends Anti-Vax Kyrie Irving And People ‘Just Can’t’

“This is a whole new level of stupid,” one person wrote on Twitter responding to the Georgia Republican’s rant about the “fascist NBA” and Magic Johnson.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) chimed in on NBA star Kyrie Irving’s benching by the Brooklyn Nets for not receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, and was labeled a “f**king monster” on Twitter for her offensive hot take.

Greene first wrongly blamed “the fascist NBA” for banning Irving, even though it was his own team that benched him because of New York City rules requiring professional athletes to be vaccinated.

The conspiracy theory-endorsing lawmaker then attempted to draw a false comparison with NBA legend Magic Johnson’s HIV diagnosis:

Greene was called out for spreading misinformation about the different ways HIV and the coronavirus are transmitted, just as a Florida GOP candidate for Congress, Lavern Spicer, was blasted when she posted a similar message Tuesday.
