Sportswriter Rick Reilly's Kate Upton "Third Breast" Tweet Under Fire
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.
Adding Kevin Durant to a Warriors team that already had Curry + Thompson is like giving Kate Upton a 3rd breast. Nothing appealing about it.— Rick Reilly (@ReillyRick) July 5, 2016

Kudos to @ReillyRick for not only saying something sexist/unfunny, but also having a terrible, unforgivable sports take.— Dave Schilling (@dave_schilling) July 5, 2016
@ReillyRick I pity the man who finds you funny.— Scott Thomsen (@ScottThomsen17) July 5, 2016
.@ReillyRick It's like the part in Total Recall where the guy says "I wish I had 3 hands" only it's so I could give this tweet 3 thumbs down— Probillmatic (@UweBollocks) July 5, 2016
