(Reuters) – Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant has apologised to the speech that he used in a social media exchange with U.S. actor and comedian Michael Rapaport.

Rapaport on Tuesday shared pictures of the personal messages delivered to him on Twitter and Instagram by Durant which included homophobic and misogynistic language utilized by the NBA star.

“I’m sorry that people have seen the language I used,” Durant, who has not played since Feb. 13 because of a hamstring injury, told reporters on Thursday.

“That’s not what I want people to see or hear from me, but hopefully I can move past it and get back out there on the floor.”

Brooklyn Nets coach Steve Nash said the incident was addressed in a personal dialogue with Durant.
