Actor Michael Rapaport posted screenshots Tuesday of a conversation between himself and Kevin Durant, in which the Brooklyn Nets star used homophobic, misogynistic and profane language toward the actor:
(Warning: images contain homophobic, misogynistic and profane language.)
I receive threats and disgusting messages DAILY, but never in my wildest dreams did I think @KDTrey5 would be among them. The 🐍 himself is now threatening me, bringing up my wife and wants to fight. This is supposed to be America’s sweetheart right? #ImDaRealMVP https://t.co/l1VQfGMMRF
The Instagram DM thread, which dates back to last year, shows Durant was apparently angered by things that Rapaport had said about him.
Durant seemed to confirm the DMs are legitimate in a tweet and apologized in Rapaport's Instagram comments:
Durant's tweet claimed he and Rapaport have a back-and-forth relationship, but the screenshots provided by the actor didn't show many of his own comments.
Durant's social media presence has been the subject of attention since he was caught using burner Twitter accounts to defend himself in 2017.
