NBA選手を地元紙が酷評→選手の母親が激怒ツイート、ファンもRT祭りで大炎上


新人賞やリーグ史上最年少を含む3度の得点王など、25歳の若さですでに多くのタイトルを手にしているNBAのスター選手、オクラホマシティ・サンダー所属のケビン・デュラント。その一方で、2012年のNBAファイナルではコート際で母親のワンダさんから熱い抱擁とキスを受けるなど、マスコミからしばしば「お母さん子(mama's boy)」とも呼ばれてきた。


だが2014年プレーオフのデュラントはやや不調気味。地元紙『ザ・オクラホマン』はそんな彼の写真を一面に載せ、「頼りない男(Mr. Unreliable)」と表現した。



この容赦ない口撃に、息子を溺愛する母親が黙っているわけがない。紙面を見たワンダさんはTwitterで「これがオクラホマの評価ってわけ? 信じられない(Unbelievable)! 息子は頼りがいのある子(Reliable)よ!」と怒りをぶちまけた。ママ・デュラントの怒りのツイートには多くのファンも賛同。「ケビンは頼りがいがある!」とリツイートで擁護した。



これが後押ししたのか、『ザ・オクラホマン』側はその後「行き過ぎた表現だった」と謝罪。「("頼りない"という言葉は)デュラントのシーズンを通じた活躍やキャリア、性格を指したものではありません。メンフィス(・グリズリーズ)戦についてです」と釈明している。

しかし当のデュラントは、キツい見出しに対し「新聞側としてはそう書いてもおかしくない。僕はチームの期待に応えられなかったわけだから」と気にしていない様子。だが赤ん坊の頃から10代初めまで祖母と協力してケビンを育てたワンダさんにとって、大事な息子が侮辱されるのはやはり我慢ならなかったのだろう。
