Reilly sparked backlash after he equated Kevin Durant's joining the Golden State Warriors to "giving Kate Upton a 3rd breast."

After hearing the news that Kevin Durant is joining Steph Curry and Klay Thompson on the Golden State Warriors, several sports commentators had something to say, but sportswriter Rick Reilly posted a bizarre reaction Tuesday that sparked a lively debate on Twitter. 

Reilly tweeted that adding the NBA star to a winning team like the Warriors was "like giving Kate Upton a 3rd breast. Nothing appealing about it." People responded immediately to his tweet, calling it "sexist/unfunny" and telling him to delete his account. 

Reilly is a sportswriter and author of Tiger, Meet My Sister … And Other Things I Probably Shouldn’t Have Said. See how Twitter responded to his tweet below.
