ACTOR and comedian Michael Rapaport has publicly accused basketball player Kevin Durant of threatening him.
Here is what we know about these row.
What did Kevin Durant say to Michael Rapaport?
Rapaport made his accusation in a Twitter post published yesterday.
The post included screenshots from a series of private messages, allegedly exchanged between Rapaport and Durant around December 23, 2020.
The screenshots suggest the confrontation began when Rapaport criticized Durant’s post-game interview with TNT analyst Charles Barkley after Brooklyn’s season-opening victory over the Golden State Warriors in December.
Rapaport tweeted: "I receive threats and disgusting messages DAILY, but never in my wildest dreams did I think @KDTrey5 would be among them.
"The (snake emoji) himself is now threatening me, bringing up my wife and wants to fight.
"This is supposed to be America's sweetheart right? #ImDaRealMVP".
Screenshots of a text exchange show Durant seemingly calling Rapaport as a "clown" and delivered a torrent of bad language.
He called him a "c**, a "p***y", a "b***h ass", a "piece of s***" and a "pale pasty cum guzzling b***h."
He also allegedly told Rapaport to "suck a d**k" and seemingly added, "All you do is c**k suck other men for attention."
In the exchange, Durant appeared to challenge Rapaport to a fight on a street corner. Responding to this, Rapaport wrote, "Go help the kids in BROWNSVILLE BROOKLYN & stop being a f***ing Puzz".
Rapaport later called Durant a "GoofBall."
What did Kevin Durant say in his apology?
The NBA star appears to confirm the authenticity of the offensive messages and said apologized.
The 32-year-old made a tepid attempt to defuse the situation in Rapaport’s Instagram comments, writing: "My bad I apologize."
