Who is Daniel Moldovan agent of Josh Giddey fired by agency Octagon for “F*ck BLM” Instagram post
The first accusations against Giddey surfaced when pictures and videos of the NBA player with a young girl named Liv Cook surfaced on social media, one of which showed shirtless Giddey standing behind the girl.
Journalist Ethan Strauss posted an article on his “House of Strauss” Substack page detailing Daniel Moldovan’s dismissal from the major agency Octagon due to his obscene reaction to a Black Lives Matter post.
After Hamas massacred Israelis on October 7, the Chicago branch of Black Lives Matter posted an image of a paraglider with the captions, “I stand with Palestine” and “That’s all it is!” The image evoked recollections of the attacks. Moldovan was fired as a result of his harsh response to the article. He is supposedly going to stay as a part of Giddey’s management in spite of this. Moldovan had posted:
72 hours after terrorists’ paraglided into a music festival and slaughtered 260 young people. This is how BLM chose to symbolise where their support lies. F*** BLM and anyone who supports them.”
Meanwhile, the Instagram post has been now deleted.
