The NBA has finally decided to take action against Kevin Durant for the homophobic and misogynistic insults he used in a private Instagram conversation with Michael Rapaport— fining the guy $50,000.
“Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant has been fined $50,000 for using offensive and derogatory language on social media,” the NBA announced on Friday.
“Durant has acknowledged that his actions were inappropriate.”
As we previously reported, Rapaport posted screenshots of recent DM conversations with Durant which the actor felt crossed a line.
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? #ImDaRealMVPpic.twitter.com/l1VQfGMMRF
