A heated controversy between NBA star Kevin Durant and actor Michael Rapaport exploded on Tuesday, March 30, after Rapaport posted screenshots of direct messages in which the Brooklyn Nets forward can be seen using homophobic, misogynistic and profane language. In a private conversation that appears to date back to December 2020, the 11-time NBA All-Star attacked the 51-year-old actor and sports podcaster with a flurry of extremely profane insults.

Durant went on to ask for Rapaport’s address and challenge him to a fistfight on the streets of New York. “Your wife doesn’t even respect your b***h a**,” Durant wrote. “I receive threats and disgusting messages DAILY, but never in my wildest dreams did I think @KDTrey5 would be among them,” Rapaport wrote on Tuesday afternoon. “The (snake emoji) himself is now threatening me, bringing up my wife and wants to fight. This is supposed to be America’s sweetheart right? #ImDaRealMVP."

The dispute started when Rapaport criticized Durant’s post-game interview with TNT’s Charles Barkley after Brooklyn’s season-opening victory over Golden State Warriors in December 2020. Rapaport tweeted at the time: “KD seemed deeply in his feelings with the (TNT) crew after the game. DAMNIT he’s super sensitive about everything. Don’t do the interview.”

Durant responded by calling Rapaport a “b***h”, a “pu**y a**”, a “pale pasty c*m guzzling b***h” and a “piece of sh*t”, before insulting the actor’s wife in a series of tweets. Durant appeared to confirm the authenticity of the direct messages in a tweet on Tuesday, March 30, then made a tepid attempt to defuse the situation in Rapaport’s Instagram comments, writing: “my bad I apologize”.

Soon, internet users started reacting to the whole controversy. One wrote, "To be fair..KD showing some racism there. Imagine if rapaport started talking about the complexion of KD’s skin. KD needs to stop spending so much time worrying what other ppl say and just ball." While another one said: "Looks like Michael Rapaport deleted some of his messages. That or kd has a mental illness and just says stuff that make no sense in the conversation. Regardless doesn't excuse kd's actions and statements and then it's a "joke" when it's fitting for him."



 



 

Slamming Durant, another one said, "KD never misses an opportunity to show the world how disturbingly insecure he is as a man. Embarrassing!" While a Durant fan said: "This only made me like him more. You are so scared you had to post dms on Twitter no respect for someone who is taunting and can't take the backlash."



 



 

One person who found Durant's messages funny wrote: "I mean .... you went at Trump hard and called him a bitch and a cocksucker too can’t complain about that language now I like you and I’m no Trump fan, but you set the standard, homie. Can’t back down now." While one slammed Rapaport and said: "U should stop sticking your fucking nose in ppl business and go audition for some role's , now u wanna screenshot and cry like a typical victim like racists yt women do , what's next 911."
