DALLAS – NBA star Kevin Durant was caught on video cussing out a fan at Saturday’s Warriors-Mavericks game.

The video was posted on social media. It shows Durant tell a fan who was seated near the baseline to “watch the f--king game and shut the f--k up" during the first quarter.

According to TMZ Sports, Durant became upset because the fan was taunting him and called him a “cupcake,” among other insults. 

TMZ Sports also reported Durant asked the referees to intervene, but no action was taken.

A witness also told the site that Durant’s outburst was justified and the heckling was over the top.

The Mavericks beat the Warriors 112-109. Golden State then played in San Antonio on Sunday.

The NBA announced on Tuesday afternoon that Durant had been fined $25,000 for directing inappropriate language toward a fan.

The video is posted below. (Warning: It contains language that may be considered inappropriate.)
