A group of rabbis, including Rabbi Avremi Zippel, were asked to put away their “I’m a Jew and I’m proud” signs during a Utah Jazz game against the Dallas Mavericks, reportedly due to an interaction with player Kyrie Irving.

The Jazz stated that the signs caused a distraction, leading to the request for their removal.

Zippel criticized the decision, questioning why the sign was considered a “distraction” and expressing disappointment in the Jazz’s response. (Trending: Transgender Actor ‘Purposefully Misgendered’ By Airline Employee)

“That Kyrie Irving is a coward with the spine of a goldfish is not news to me,” Zippel wrote.

“That the Mavericks organization covers for him, is sadly, not new to me.”

“The Utah Jazz Code of Conduct is in place so that games can be played without distraction and disruption. No matter where someone is in the arena, if a sign becomes distracting or sparks and interaction with a player, we will ask them to remove it,” the Jazz stated.

“During an out-of-bounds player in the first quarter of yesterday’s Jazz game against the Dallas Mavericks, there was a group sitting courtside whose signs sparked an interaction with a player that created a distraction and interfered with a play of game.”

“As the next step in standard security protocol, the fans were asked to take down their signs. The part-time employee who told the fans it was the content of the sign that was the problem was incorrect.”

“The issue was the disruptive interaction caused by usage of the signs, not the content of the signs.”

“Bottom line: there was one person, in a building of 18,000+, that was triggered by sign that says ‘I’m a Jew and I’m proud’,” Zippel wrote.

“Why that bothers him so, to the point that it sparks an interaction, should be the real question anyone is asking.”

“Sadly, instead of just quietly chalking this up to a misunderstanding and letting this remain a small blip, the Jazz took the side of said triggered player and doubled down.”

“That’s just disappointing to me.”

The Mavericks did not immediately respond to the situation.
