It's not a secret that Kevin Durant doesn't like being criticized. He just can't handle a critic. In fact, for all it's worth, he just can't handle a comment about him, even if just to praise him and laud his basketball skills.
Durant became infamous around the NBA for using fake Twitter accounts to defend himself from regular fans and to call out his former Oklahoma City Thunder teammates. Now at the Brooklyn Nets, he still fights on social media with unknown people with 150 followers.
And once again, that childish behavior backfired big time, as Hollywood star Michael Rapaport exposed him for threatening to spit on him and calling him out with homophobic and misogynistic slurs.

"As most of you know, I receive threats and disgusting messages DAILY, but never in my wildest dreams did I think @easymoneysniper would be among them. The snake himself is now threatening me, bringing up my wife and wants to fight. This is supposed to be America’s sweetheart right? KD didn’t get “hacked” either. Hold this L champ #ImDaRealMVP #igotastorytotell," Rapaport captioned a post on Instagram.

And, against all odds, it seems like Kevin Durant finally realized that going at every single person who mentions his name on social media is wrong, especially when you can't even have a civilized conversation:
“I’m sorry that people saw the language I used. That’s not really what I want people to see or hear from me. Hopefully, I can move past it, and just get back on the floor," Durant said in a press conference.
Also, coach Steve Nash claimed that the team is looking into this matter but that they'll discuss their results internally. So, finally, at 32 years old, it seems like KD learned how to take the high road and just ignore his haters.
