Just when you think the drama between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries might finally be winding down, someone else decides to play with fire. This time, the culprit was JR Smith, a basketball player for the New York Knicks. JR took a seemingly harmless tweet from the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s estranged husband and took it to a whole new level, meanwhile launching a Twitter flame war with his below-the-belt response.
JR Smith just doesn’t learn. The athlete has already been in hot water over his often offensive Twitter posts, which the NBA views as a poor reflection of the entire organization. In 2012, JR was fined $25,000 for using his Twitter account to post an inappropriate picture of model Tahiry Jose. Less than a year later, it looks like the New York Knicks player could once again be in trouble.
The drama began when Kris Humphries gloated on Twitter about the Brooklyn Nets’ victory over the New York Knicks. Kris Humphries’ jab may have been smug, but it was hardly unusual: “Big game tonight! The Garden got really quiet on the way out! #Brooklyn.” JR Smith decided that Kris Humphries’ jab at the Knicks deserved a comeback, which is why he retweeted the comment and then added the following gem: “Wasnt quiet when Kanye tore it down last month!”
It’s hard to believe that someone already fined by the NBA for his Twitter could be so dumb, but yes, that is a real tweet from JR Smith’s account. It’s not too often that we feel any sympathy for Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian or Kanye West for that matter, but come on…was that tweet really necessary?
