Rapaport posted screenshots of the pair’s Instagram direct messages on Twitter and Instagram in which Durant appeared to use homophobic, misogynistic and profane language.
“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?”
According to the screenshots, the confrontation began last year when Rapaport criticized Durant’s post-game interview after the Nets’ season-opening victory over the Golden State Warriors in December.
In the messages, Durant insulted the 51-year-old Rapaport, as well as offering to fight the actor, even asking for his address.
CNN has reached out to Durant, Rapaport, the NBA and the Brooklyn Nets for comment.
Durant could face a fine from the NBA for using the homophobic language.
It’s not the first time Durant has been in hot water for his activity on social media. In 2017, he was outed for using burner accounts to defend himself around his exit from Oklahoma City Thunder.
