The Boston Celtics were recently banned from Chinese airwaves for comments made by Turkish Cs center Enes Kanter in support of the people of Tibet.
His response to China’s aggressive gesture?
You can’t shut me up.
Kanter tweeted out a photo of his shoes–which featured historical portraits from the country’s history and those who stood up against them–ahead of the Celtics’ Sunday night game against the Houston Rockets:
The Boston Celtics big man is somewhat of a philanthropist for the NBA, speaking out against governing bodies across the globe.
This was his response to when Turkish president Tayyip Erdogan sued him for speaking up against human rights violations in the country:
Kanter simply doesn’t care what these rulers think. The outspoken center will let his voice be heard and use his platform however he sees fit, whether it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic or against the unruly ruling of leaders anywhere.
