NBA Star Kevin Durant made headlines this week, when he appeared to slam his former team and teammates via Twitter.
Oddly, he blasted them on Twitter while writing in the third person, leading many to believe he thought he was tweeting from a secret, anonymous account rather than his verified one.
Well, Durant addressed the ordeal at TechCrunch Disrupt on Tuesday (Sept. 19), when he was asked directly if he intended to bash the OKC Thunder on Twitter from an anonymous account.
KD, of course, denied the allegation, but owned up to the comments, saying they were “childish” and “idiotic”.
“I went a little too far,” he said. “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 my former organization that I played for. That was childish, that was idiotic, all those type of words. I regret doing that, and I apologized to them for doing that.”
Durant did, however, admit to having another Instagram account, sayig that it’s “just for my friends and family so I wouldn’t say I was using that to clap back at anybody.”
Despite how the situation played out, KD says he will continue to use Twitter to interact with fans.
“I don’t think I ever stop engaging with my fans,” Durant explained. “I think they really enjoy it, and I think it’s a good way to connect us all. But, I will scale back a little bit right now, just focus on playing basketball. So, I want to move on from that. It was tough to deal with yesterday, I was really upset with myself. But I definitely want to move on and keep playing basketball. But I still want to interact with my fans as well.”
