WATCH: Oklahoma man simulates gunning down NBA’s Kevin Durant because he changed teams
An Oklahoma man apparently tried to hide his show of anger toward pro basketball star Kevin Durant after it started getting attention online.
Sports websites like The Big Lead featured a video posted by Westin Wood on Monday following Durant’s announcement that he chose to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and sign with the Western Conference champions, the Golden State Warriors.
The footage shows Wood dousing a replica Durant jersey with what is presumably lighter fluid while holding an unidentified long gun. He then walks toward two other men, each of whom are also holding firearms. Then they start shooting at the jersey, quickly causing it to catch fire.
Wood originally posted the video on his Twitter account, using the tag #Thunderindependenceday and the statement, “You leave us … We leave you!” which he addressed to Durant’s account. He was quickly criticized by Black Sports Online, which referred to the trio as “‘All Lives Matter’ sorts of people,” and by New York Daily News columnist Shaun King, who called the video “a white supremacist demonstration of rage.”
Wood appears to have deleted the video, but it was posted on YouTube and can be seen below.
