WATCH: Enes Freedom getting flak for 'Tucker Carlson' appearance on 'Young Turks' show




 

New citizen of the United States of America Enes Kanter Freedom is finding himself the subject of quite a few recent publications about his activism for human rights, but it may not be the sort of attention he was hoping for.

While his causes are widely supported as he does his best to champion human rights causes in his ancestral Turkey, around the world, and in China in particular, a recent appearance on the controversial Fox television "Tucker Carlson Show" and the comments he made on it are dominating the coverage the outspoken Celtics center has been getting in recent days.

And while his comments taken out of context are undoubtedly worse than otherwise, it seems that Freedom now finds himself at the center of a minor political kerfuffle that is not doing much to further his ostensible goals.

One such example is a recent episode captured on the video embedded above that features Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian reflecting on the Boston big man's recent activism in the public sphere.
