Actor and podcaster Michael Rapaport has revealed a private war of words with Kevin Durant in which the Brooklyn Nets star unleashed a string of homophobic slurs while threatening to spit on the diehard 51-year-old New York sports fan.
Screen grabs of the private, online conversation were revealed by Rapaport in a tweet on Tuesday afternoon. The disagreement appears to have started in December after Rapaport criticized an awkward post-game interview Durant had on TNT.
‘I receive threats and disgusting messages DAILY, but never in my wildest dreams did I think [Kevin Durant] would be among them,’ Rapaport tweeted Tuesday while posting grabs of his December exchange with Durant. ‘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?’
The revelation was made a day after a federal judge dismissed a defamation lawsuit Rapaport filed against Barstool Sports and its founder Dave Portnoy over a t-shirt depicting the actor with a case of herpes. Interestingly, Durant referenced that lawsuit in one of the Instagram attacks he launched at Rapaport in December.
‘Your wife mad as f*** cuz u wasting that little bit of money on a lawyers cuz u can’t take a joke,’ Durant wrote in a direct message to Rapaport.
