Phoenix Suns superstar Kevin Durant is pushing back on the narrative that he is thin-skinned and too sensitive to criticism, especially on social media. Doug Gottlieb reminds him that he did himself no favors by using a burner account and interacting directly with internet trolls so his reputation is therefore well earned. Winning a championship and staying off social media entirely are his only real options for rehabilitating his image.

Doug Gottlieb: “He did himself no favors in having a burner account, responding to randoms on Twitter...But my biggest takeaway is this: you just can’t live on social media because social media has people who don’t know anything about anything.”
