Emotional Rapaport Claims "People Online Have Been So Cruel" To Me
On March 30, Rapaport posted an exchange between him and Durant to Twitter, in which Durant privately pushed back on Rapaport’s public criticism of Durant’s responses in an interview with Charles Barkley, insulted Rapaport, and demanded he meet him for a fight. Durant’s insults to Rapaport included misogynistic and homophobic phrases, and at one point Rapaport responded with a misogynistic insult of his own (an apparent go-to move for the actor and podcast host, who has a history of making controversial comments).
The back-and-forth appears to have started in December. Durant apologized within days of Rapaport sharing the messages, and the NBA has fined Durant $50,000 “for using offensive and derogatory language on social media.”
