Kevin Durant loves to be on Twitter. Not many have forgotten the burner account scandal that hit KD a few years ago when he was caught having unnamed accounts on Twitter. While that is something many athletes do, KD is one of the few NBA players to actually be caught doing that.

However, KD is embracing not caring. While the burner account issue happened in the past, Durant is happy addressing haters and trolls from his main account. This has caused many to tell him not to interact with haters on Twitter, including one user who decided to do so by asking KD for free shoes and merchandise, which promptly got him blocked.

KD’s business partner responded to the person that made that tweet with a video, to which KD added a hilarious video as well.
