By now, you might have heard that NBA superstar Kevin Durant announced he would take his talents to the Bay Area and become a member of the Golden State Warriors.
It should be noted that business is business, but some salty sports fans took to Yelp to express their disapproval of Kevin Durant’s decision, by attacking his restaurant, KD’s Southern Cuisine.
OKC fans weren’t the only people trolling the page. Die hard Golden State Warriors fans jumped in to Welcome KD, while savagely mocking Thunder supporters. It got to the point where Yelp Support had to clean up the mess.
Within the past 24 hours, Yelp! users have been writing their in length about apparent disgust with his restaurant and him as a person. To be fair, KD’s has a 3.5 star rating, which is average. It seems unclear if KD’s name sake will depart from it’s home on Johnny Bench Ave., anytime soon.
Although it’s hard to believe that the majority of reviews aren’t even from people that LIVE in Oklahoma City, or really even about the food in general — but the trolls keep coming.
User BB (Canucklehead) H, gave KD’s 3 stars, but made a snarky comment about serving Kraft Mac n’ Cheese in a Klay pot. Although, the account’s location is set to Canada. Umm, okay.
Yelper Jordan C., from Ohio., gave a 1-star rating and talked about his dreams getting thrown in the toilet. How can someone be this upset after the Cleveland Cavaliers won the championship? Um, Jordan, you know Cleveland is in Ohio, right? Why are you here?
Troy A., got super metaphorical. Even found a photo of Kevin Durant in a chef’s hat — or made it. Either way, we’ll be over here if you need us, Troy.
Charlie S., from Mill Valley, CA said the restaurant was, “great” but STILL gave it 2 stars!? C’mon, fam!
Warriors fans didn’t seem too eager to try KD’s but welcomed him in the form of a Yelp review. Because how else would you welcome a new player in 2016? So, yeah.
On Thursday, as Kevin Durant was introduced to the media by Golden State’s management, he referred to meeting the Warriors as an, “organic” experience, which is ironic because the Bay Area is (probably) full of hipster vegans on organic-only diets. That’s a far cry from the southern home-style cooking his restaurant was serving up in Oklahoma.
Hey, if can’t take the heat — get out of the kitchen.
