Watch: White Men Simulate Lynching Kevin Durant in Disgusting Video

Watch: White Men Simulate Lynching Kevin Durant in Disgusting Video

Racist and vile.

Published July 5th

Some fans hate that Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City to sign with Golden State less than two months after he failed to lead the Thunder to a Western Conference Finals' win over the Warriors, blowing a 3-1 lead.

Others loved it, already looking forward to watching the NBA superstar team with back-to-back MVP Stephen Curry and fellow All-Stars Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

But KD's announcement Monday led to racism rearing its ugly head, too. 

As New York Daily News columnist Shaun King wrote aboutWestin Wood, a resident of Tulsa, Oklahoma, used the announcement as an opportunity to simulate a lynching of Durant in an absolutely disgusting video.

In this revolting clip, you can clearly see Wood douse a Durant No. 35 Thunder jersey with gasoline, before he and his friends — all white — fire away at it with their assault rifles, causing it to burst into flames.

Pure evil. Absolutely heinous.

This world is a scary place.
