Social media had a field day with Kevin Durant and his ashy leg dilemma. The Brooklyn Nets star clapped back at everyone who was dragging him for days over his urgent need of lotion.
The NBA champion went viral on Monday when the photo hit the internet, showing his extremely ashy leg while he was on the court. Fans and fellow players wasted no time roasting KD. His former Golden State Warriors teammate, Draymond Green, even joined in on the fun, joking that Durant’s legs looked like “scales.”
“Go get that lotion sponsorship, K,” Green wrote on his Instagram.
Durant let the jokes fly for a while but eventually took to Twitter to let off a “f— ya’ll” to anyone poking fun at the man who’s worth an estimated $170 million.
“I’m bouta pull my “y’all broke” card in a second,” he tweeted.
I’m bouta pull my “y’all broke” card in a second. Fuck y’all

One Twitter user attempted to check KD about his clap back, pointing out that his young fans would see his response. However, the 33-year-old was quick to let them know, “I am not a role model.”
