Geraldo Rivera, Greg Gutfeld Spar Over Kyrie Irving’s Vaccine Decision

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving is making headlines as the NBA star for refusing to get vaccinated ahead of the 2021-22 season. 

As a result, Irving won’t be able to play home games at the Barclays Center, home of the Nets, as the city of New York requires proof of vaccination for entry into indoor entertainment venues.

Irving’s decision regarding the vaccination led to a shouting match between “The Five,” co-hosts Geraldo Rivera and Greg Gutfeld. 

Gutfeld spoke more generally about the tension that vaccines promote and how the public shouldn’t get sucked in. Meanwhile, Rivera discussed Irving’s actions and how they are harming others.

“The worst thing about this is, we now have created an artificial division,” Gutfeld said. “A couple years ago, it was race versus race — thank you CNN — it was gender issues, but now, Geraldo, you’re mad at this guy!”

“I am mad at him,” Rivera responded. “Because he’s foolish. He’s not just hurting himself; he’s hurting everybody like Jesse, who invested in the Brooklyn Nets.”

Gutfeld then fired back at his co-host. “You’re being played,” Gutfeld repeated over and over again. “I’m trying to explain. Rivera didn’t stay quiet, calling the colleague “stubborn.”

“You’re being stubborn,” Rivera replied. “You’re being blockheaded.”
