Kevin Durant had it coming to him. Despite partially admitting to having secret social media accounts yesterday, the NBA Finals MVP using an imposter Twitter and Instagram account to clap back at his haters and trolls was prime material for him to be awarded "Donkey of the Day" by Charlamagne Tha God.
But The Breakfast Club personality and New York Times best-selling author didn't simply use his daily dubious distinction to merely drag KD, but rather as an example of a "teachable moment" for all to hear.
"Kevin Durant is a multi-millionaire, debatable on if he's the best player in the NBA or not — between him and LeBron James — at this moment, but he is affected by social media so much that he has to create a fake account in order to reply back to people who have critiqued him," Charlamagne said.
C tha God said that to explain "if you live for the compliments, you'll die by the criticism."
But be clear — there was dragging, too.
"How's Kevin Durant catfishing himself?" Charlamagne said after playing a soundbite of the Golden State Warriors' All-Star forward sort of admitting to his secret social media accounts.
He added, "Don't be a cyber coward and stand behind a fake page."
Damn. Here's Charlamagne Tha God's entire "Donkey of the Day" segment blasting Durant, including his reaction to KD's admission, and a few people in full agreement.
KD did it to himself.
After listening to KD's admission, C Tha God implored the NBA superstar, "Don't be a cyber coward and stand behind a fake page." He added, "Don't care that much to where you created a fake page, bruh."
What did KD think was going to happen?
