Prominent China’s slave labor critic Enes Kanter Freedom, who was effectively kicked out of the NBA last season, was awarded the “MVP” at the fourth annual Fox Nation’s Patriot Awards in Hollywood, Florida, Thursday, as he continues to advocate for those who need it most.

“I cannot thank you guys enough,” Kanter said upon receiving the award, given to him by Fox & Friends co-hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade, via Fox News. “I’m really honored and humbled to be here.”
