Megyn Kelly’s new podcast has made headlines with her recent confrontation of Mark Cuban, the billionaire entrepreneur and owner of the Dallas Mavericks.
Kelly repeatedly asked Cuban to condemn the ethnic cleansing of Uighur Muslims, at least one million of whom find themselves in government-run detention centers. The NBA’s silence on this unfolding disaster is nothing short of appalling and Cuban’s answer will leave you shaking your head:
After dancing around the question and not being remotely specific, Cuban tried to flip the script on Megyn by equating the Chinese Communist Party’s human right abuses to the United States’ refugee issues. An unfazed Kelly steered the conversation back on track and pressed Cuban once more, saying, “I’ve been told silence is violence so why are you so silent about this?”
Cuban claimed he didn’t want to answer Kelly because he didn’t want to deal with the internet trolls and headlines. His meek response speaks volumes about the NBA’s controversial relationship with China.
