Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving used a Malcolm X quote to respond to a 25,000 fine that the NBA levied on him for avoiding his media availability last week and instead issuing a statement to reporters.

Irving posted the quote along with other reactions on his Instagram Stories on Friday.

“’I’ve had enough of someone else’s propaganda. I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m [for] Justice, no matter who it’s for or against. I’m a human being first and foremost, and as such I am for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.’ Malcolm X Year X.”
