10 Times Kevin Durant was an Absolute Mess on Twitter

Kevin Durant is well-known for engaging with fans and colleagues on Twitter. The 34-year-old forward that recently joined the Phoenix Suns, is no stranger to a good back and forth. The future Hall of Famer has had drama with Shannon Sharpe, Michael Rapaport, Kendrick Perkins, and many more.

Durant also was caught using burner accounts to respond to people who criticize him on social media when he responded to a fan but forgot to switch accounts.

Durant acknowledged the error two days later, saying, “I have another Instagram account, but that’s just for my friends and family. So, I wouldn’t say that I was using it to clap back at anyone. I use Twitter to engage with fans. I think it’s a great way to engage with basketball fans. I happened to take it a little too far. That’s what happens sometimes when I get into these basketball debates about what I really love, to play basketball. I don’t regret clapping back at anybody or talking to my fans on Twitter. I do regret using my former coach’s name and the former organization that I played for. That was childish. That was idiotic, all those type of words. I regret doing that, and I apologize for doing that.”

It is safe to say that Kevin Durant is an absolute mess on social media, and today we look at some of his epic blowups and clapbacks.

In one of his most epic responses on Twitter, Kevin Durant responded directly to criticism from former teammate Kendrick Perkins. I don’t think Kendrick ever recovered from Durant pointing out that he only averaged 2 points and 3 rebounds per game as the Thunder’s starting Center.
