Barnes & Noble has pulled the controversial e-book “Hebrews to Negroes: Get up Black America” off its cabinets … whereas Kyrie Irving continues to face backlash for selling it.
Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), counseled B&N Tuesday morning … saying the bookseller’s resolution to yank the e-book ought to set a precedent.
Greenblatt then turned his consideration to Amazon, revealing he wrote to the corporate over every week in the past, seeking to have a dialog concerning the e-book/movies presence on the enormous retailer’s web site. The ADL CEO says he’d like a disclaimer added to the e-book and movie, in any case.
Greenblatt added the e-book and movie “will lead on to the hurt of Jews,” including Amazon must observe B&N’s lead earlier than it is too late.

The Nets finally suspended Irving for an indefinite period of time. He hasn’t performed since November 1 … and it is unclear when he’ll return.
