A swarm of anti-vaccine protesters broke through the security perimeters of the Barclays Center and attempted to enter the stadium Sunday before the Brooklyn Nets’ home opener.

Protesters were chanting ‘let Kyrie play’ after All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving was sidelined earlier this month due to his refusal to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

On Sunday, hundreds of people gathered outside the stadium in protest as a smaller group broke through the metal barriers and shouted as they headed towards the entrance.

Some protesters were detained by security while trying to load into the building.

Nets guard Kyrie Irving was sidelined earlier this month due to his refusal to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Shaky video of the scene, posted by Freedomnews.tv, showed the security guards struggling to defend themselves from the angry crowd as they tried to enter the building.

Security closed the building to prevent more protesters from breaking into the interior.

Some protesters held up signs while others shouted through horns, banged on the building’s glass doors, chanted “we will not comply” and waved American flags.

The protest came after 29-year-old Irving was told that he would need proof of at least one shot to play at his own stadium, Barclays Center, due to New York City’s vaccination mandate.

Irving would have been allowed to play away games and even practice in Brooklyn, because the team’s training center is considered a private workplace and not a public stadium, but the team decided to put it aside indefinitely until he is vaccinated or a permanent solution can be reached.

He risks losing about half his nearly $ 35 million salary by declining the injection, but previously said he has no regrets about his decision.

‘And that? It’s not about the money, ”Irving said. It is not always about the money. It’s about choosing what is best for you. Do you think I really want to lose money?

He would have played the first home game of the season on Sunday had he fulfilled the mandate, infuriating fans who believed he shouldn’t have had to choose between the jab and his career.

An irate protester tackled fans entering the stadium before the game against the Charlotte Hornets.

‘Do you agree that Kyrie Irving can’t play because he refuses to be a slave? Do you agree to be slaves of the system? Giving up their bodies to be lab rats just so they can go to a restaurant; just so you can go to a basketball game?

Do you even know what’s in that injection? Do you care Do you give a shit? You are all lab rats. You have no idea what is in that injection.

It was not immediately clear how police and security officials cleared the mob, but spokesmen for the Barclay Center said in a statement that the game was not affected.

“The Barclays Center briefly closed its doors today to clear protesters from the main gates of the plaza and ensure that guests can safely enter the arena,” the statement said. “ Only ticketed guests were allowed into the building and the game was played according to schedule. ”

In late September, the NBA reported a 95 percent vaccination rate among players.
