Synopsis: For my latest at Vice, I wrote about Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry and president Masai Ujiri speaking out loudly and clearly about Donald Trump’s U.S. travel ban.
Kyle Lowry was asked to repeat his comments without the use of profanity, with a reporter looking for a more television-friendly response. The Toronto Raptors point guard declined. Asked about US President Donald Trump’s immigration ban on travel for those from seven predominantly Muslim countries, Lowry wore his feelings on his sleeve with a simple, coherent message.
“I think it’s bullshit. I think it’s absolute bullshit,” Lowry said. “Our country is the country of the home of the free. For that to happen is bullshit. I won’t get into it too deeply but personally I think it’s bullshit.
“Y’all have to bleep that out. That’s how I feel about it. If you use it, you use it. I’m sure you can bleep it out.”
