Protesters Supporting Kyrie Irving's Vaccine Stance Swarm Barclays Center Before Nets' Home Opener

Chaos erupted outside of Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Sunday as hundreds of protesters gathered in support of Nets point guard Kyrie Irving, who has refused to get vaccinated for COVID-19.

Protesters congregated outside the Nets' arena shortly before the teams' home opener against the Charlotte Hornets tipped off at 4 p.m. local time, according to Newsday and ESPN. Some held signs that read "Stand with Kyrie," while chanting "No vaccine mandate, stand with Kyrie," ESPN reports.

At one point, Newsday reported, a group of protesters breached barricades and reached the arena's front entrance. Video of the scene shows individuals waving flags and yelling "Let Kyrie play."
