Without breaking stride or looking up, Irving shouts back, "S-- my d--!'"

Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving took responsibility for yelling profanity at a fan in Philadelphia, but doesn't regret making the comment.

The Boston Celtics got their first win of the young season on Friday night, but instead of celebrating, Kyrie Irving was forced to confront his past.

The incident happened at halftime of Friday's Celtics game vs. the Philadelphia 76ers.

Irving was captured on video offering a lewd response walking in the visitors' tunnel toward the locker room after someone yelled to him, "where's LeBron?"

A Philadelphia account tweeted a video of a fan heckling Irving, asking, "Where's LeBron?"

"[The fan was] man enough to record it on video, then that's all him", Irving said to the sports publication. That's the social media platform we live on. But like I said, I'm going to take full responsibility for what I said. "I take full responsibility what I said and excuse (to) the kids at home and you move on".

As per Chris Forsberg of ESPN, Kyrie Irving said that "At the end of the day, we're human". It's up to the league at this point. On Saturday, October 21, VanDeWeghe announced that DeMarcus Cousins had been fined $25,000 after the New Orleans Pelican player got into a heated exchange with a female fan during a game in Memphis.

The Cavaliers' trade of Irving to the Celtics for guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, rookie center Ante Zizic and two draft picks in August was one of the league's blockbuster deals of the summer.
