Kevin Durant broke his silence.

After a private feud between Brooklyn’s superstar forward and actor Michael Rapaport went public then viral, a back-and-forth that featured some seriously ugly language from KD, Durant spoke to reporters prior to the start of Brooklyn’s game against the Charlotte Hornets. He apologized for the language which had been seen as homophobic and misogynist.

“I’m sorry that people seen that language that I used. That’s not really what I want people to see and hear from me,” said Durant. “Hopefully I can move past it and get back out on the floor.”

Here’s a recap of the feud from Rapoport. in case you missed it. As a heads up, most of these messages are NSFW.

His head coach, Steve Nash, was also questioned on the matter. Though Nash did mention the conversation between Rapaport and Durant was “private,” he told reporters that the Nets and KD had :internal discussions” about the controversy. Those conversations, as Nash put it, were going to be kept internal within the Nets organization.

Durant is expected to be back on the floor sooner than later, though no date has been put on his return. According to Nash, he’ll be out for at least the next two games –– an away game on Sunday, April 3, against the Chicago Bulls and a home game against the New York Knicks on Monday, April 4.

Thus far, the NBA has yet to put out a statement of any kind about Durant’s comments.
