Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving has been suspended without pay for at least five games after promoting an image that contained "deeply disturbing anti-Semitic hate." 

"Do not identify specific hateful content in the film," the Nets said in a statement. 

"This is not the first time he has had an opportunity to clarify - but failed." 

The decision comes a week after Irving tweeted a link to the 2018 film "Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America" ​​on Amazon Prime Video. 

Based on the 2015 book of the same name, the film "uncovers the true identity of the Children of Israel," says the synopsis. 

Several Jewish rights organizations, including the American Jewish Congress and the Anti-Defamation League, condemned the film as anti-Semitic. 

The Nets said working with Irving "helped him understand the harm and danger of his words and actions, 

It started with him promoting a deeply disturbing anti-Semitic image."
