Chris Brown is the latest celebrity to defend Kyrie Irving’s decision to not receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

On Wednesday (Oct. 20), the “Go Crazy” singer took to his Instagram Stories to stand up for the NBA star. “THE REAL HERO!!!!” he wrote alongside a photo of Irving. “I stand with my brother. WHOEVER DONT LIKE IT …. Go live your damn life.. ITS HIS CHOICE AND A DAMN GOOD ONE. ALWAYS IN MY BROTHERS CORNER.”

Irving’s declaration to not become vaccinated against Coronavirus has caused the Brooklyn Nets player to be benched for the remainder of the 2021-2022 basketball season.

As REVOLT previously reported, earlier this month, the Nets banned Irving from practicing or playing with the team until he got the vaccine.

“Given the evolving nature of the situation and after thorough deliberation, we have decided Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant,” the team’s General Manager Sean Marks said in a statement. “Kyrie has made a personal choice and we respect his individual right to choose.”

Marks said Irving’s refusal to be vaccinated against COVID-19 has limited “his ability to be a full-time member of the team” adding, that “we will not permit any member of our team to participate with part-time availability.”

Following the ban, the point guard took to Instagram Live to publicly speak about his decision to remain unvaccinated and clear up rumors about him retiring.

“I’m staying grounded in what I believe in,” Irving said during the 20-minute video. “It’s not about being anti-vaxx or about being on one side or the other. It’s about being true to what feels good for me. I’m still uncertain about a lot of things and that’s ok. If I’m going to be demonized about having more questions and taking my time to make a decision with my life, then that’s just what it is.”
