Kevin Durant accused of using homophobic slurs in private messages with Michael Rapaport


Rapaport posted screenshots of the couple’s Instagram direct messages to Twitter and Instagram in which Durant appeared to use homophobic, misogynistic and profane language.

“I get disgusting threats and messages EVERYDAY, but never in my wildest dreams have I thought [Kevin Durant] would be among them, “Rapaport wrote Tuesday afternoon.

“The [snake emoji] himself threatens me now, brings up my wife and wants to fight. It’s supposed to be America’s sweetheart, isn’t it? “

According to screenshots, the showdown began last year when Rapaport criticized Durant’s post-game interview following the Nets’ season-opening win over the Golden State Warriors in December.

In the messages, Durant insulted Rapaport, 51, and offered to fight the actor, even asking for his address.

Durant appeared to confirm that the messages were real, reply to a Tweet from another user: “Me and Mike talk crazier than that regularly and today he’s pissed off …. My bad mic, damn !!”

CNN has reached out to Durant, Rapaport, the NBA and the Brooklyn Nets for their comment.

Durant could face a fine from the NBA for using homophobic language.

Durant was previously recognized by Time magazine, which named him one of the most influential people in the world. The two-time NBA champion is often remembered for a trophy acceptance speech in which he called his mother a true MVP.

This isn’t the first time Durant has been in hot water for his social media activity. In 2017, he was exposed for using burner accounts to defend himself during his release from Oklahoma City Thunder.

And just last year it admitted on an episode of the “All the Smoke” podcast with former NBA players Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson that he uses burner accounts to defend his honor from time to time.
