Former NBA star Enes Kanter Freedom blasted the United Nations commissioner the day the organization published a report on China’s human rights violations against the Uyghurs.
The 48-page report detailed that the communist country was detaining Uyghur’s at internment camps and that charges of sexual abuse by officials seemed to be “credible and would in themselves amount to acts of torture or other forms of ill-treatment.”
The United States and Great Britian said the human rights abuses were “genocide,” the U.N. determined that the “arbitrary and discriminatory detention” of the Uyghurs by China were “crimes against humanity.”
The report came out on Michelle Bachelet’s last day as the U.N. high commissioner. Kanter, who essentially lost his career over his repeated criticism of the CCP, blasted the official for failing to “make a difference.”
“Today was [Michelle Bachelet’s] last day on the job, the commissioner for @UNHumanRights,” he tweeted on Wednesday. “On her last day of her 4 year term she decided to do her job when it was too late to make a difference. You wasted all your power catering to the CCP propaganda Shame!”

The former Celtics star recently went after the league after they announced that there would be no games on Election Day, and would hold a “civic engagement night” the day prior to encourage fans to vote.
“The NBA’s biggest backer is China — so when they promote Civic Engagement here, do they care to comment about a dictatorship they are profiting off of?” He accused. “The NBA constantly told me ‘we don’t want to get involved in politics’… I guess what they meant to say was ‘we don’t want to upset China.”‘
The free agent said that the league “subliminally” wills players to vote for one party over the other.
“I think this move by the NBA is a great idea, Election Day should be a federal holiday where everyone can go out and vote,” he told Fox News. “The issue though is, that the NBA subliminally encourages players to vote a certain party. I have had coaches lose jobs who expressed conservative values — that’s an issue,” he continued.
