Now this is kind of bizarre. Basketball player Kyrie Irving revealed he believes the Earth is flat and Twitter is not having it. See the hilarious tweets here!
Kyrie Irving made waves with his controversial opinion about the shape of the Earth. The 24 year-old point guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers shocked fans when he revealed on the Road Trippin‘ podcast he believes the world is flat. “This is not even a conspiracy theory. The Earth is flat,” he said. The world has been accepted to be a sphere for several centuries now with Aristotle being one the first to theorize about its’ shape.
Well Twitter had a field day when users heard about Kyrie’s theory. “It’s right in front of our faces. I’m telling you, it’s right in front of our faces. They lie to us,” he said on the podcast. One Twitter user wrote, “Trusting Kyrie Irving on planetary physics is like trusting a misogynistic reality tv host with the nuclear codes,” in reference to President Donald Trump, 70. Read on to see more Twitter reactions.
