Fans think Kyrie Irving is in the Illuminati because of his new tattoo

Sunday January 31st, 2016

Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving debuted a new tattoo during the Cavaliers’ win over the Spurs on Saturday which caused quite the stir online.

Irving posted a photo to Instagram after the game with the hashtag ‘#HamsaHand,’ which would indicate that his tattoo is of the Hamsa Hand, a spiritual symbol that provides protection from the ‘evil eye.’


Great home win. #ontothenext #HamsaHand

That won’t stop Irving’s followers from claiming he has an ‘all-seeing eye’ tattoo that would imply he is a member of the Illuminati. If you’re not familiar with this accusation, there is a widespread conspiracy theory that many high-profile actors and artists owe their fame to this secret society. It doesn’t generally include athletes, but there are some exceptions.

Take our word for it. There are a lot more of these in the comments.
