When did all of this begin?

Rapaport discussed that the feud began in December and was in lieu of the actor’s tweet.

The tweet said that Kevin Duranty was “super sensitive about everything,” about Durant and Charles Barkley’s interview.

Kevin Durant began to send Rapaport messages and calling him horrible names. Of course, Rapaport did not quieten down after the messages.

Durant and Rapaport used to be good friends. In 2018, on Durant’s ESPN show, Michael Rapaport was Kevin’s guest. Rapaport posted a snippet of the show later that day.

The two were discussing seats for the NBA Finals.

Since the confrontation started, Kevin Durant has been calling Rapaport names online. He has been insulting Rapaport’s wife too.

This was when Rapaport blew a gasket. Durant has gone after Rapaport over a defamation suit that Rapaport filed against Barstool Sports.

This case was thrown out last week. The lawsuit was in response to a T-shirt to be asserting that Rapaport was a clown and that Rapaport has herpes.

U.S. Southern District Court Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald, in a 64-page opinion, wrote that a “reasonable audience” could tell that the image was embellished.

“While hardly flattering to Rapaport, this image standing alone is not actionable because a reasonable audience would not understand the shirt to be asserting as a fact that Rapaport has herpes,” Buchwald’s ruling read.

What Kevin Durant Could Face

Kevin Durant could face discipline from the NBA for the comments.

Some of Kevin Durant’s tweets are hard to tell if they are genuine, but some of the messages are very vile and harsh.

Durant did issue an apology to Michael Rapaport today that some think was not very genuine. Some think he is doing this just to save face and avoid any trouble with the NBA.

After about 30 minutes of these two going on and on, Durant finally gave an apology statement that Rapaport was not happy with at all. All Durant said to apologize was, “ My bad.”

Michael Rapaport has a cruel way of saying things, but Durant went over the line this time.


We hope whatever beef that these two have gets settled for their friendship’s sake. This is no reason to go at one another and promote homophobic words being thrown out on social media. Kevin Durant and Michael Rapaport have a few things to work out, and we wish them the best.
