Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving apologized late Thursday for tweeting a link to a documentary criticized as antisemitic, saying he takes full responsibility for his decision to share the content with his nearly five million followers.

The NBA star posted the apology on his verified Instagram account hours after the Nets announced a five-game suspension for his later defending of his decision.
