Kevin Durant Criticizes ‘Bum Ass ESPN’ for Fantasy Auction

by August 16, 2017

Kevin Durant tweeted his displeasure at “bum ass ESPN” after the network aired a controversial fantasy football auction draft Tuesday.

The Worldwide Leader quickly issued an apology to quell the firestorm.

Many people compared the 28-hour fantasy marathon to a modern-day slave auction.

Per CNN:

ESPN apologized on Tuesday for a fantasy football segment of an auction draft where black players were sold to mostly white male bidders.

 

“”Auction drafts are a common part of fantasy football, and ESPN’s segments replicated an auction draft with a diverse slate of top professional football players,” the network statement said.

 

“Without that context, we understand the optics could be portrayed as offensive, and we apologize.”
