As Kevin Durant’s ashy ankles went viral on social media, the basketball player was quick to hit back at people for mocking his skin.

Kevin Durant gets roasted for ashy ankles
Kevin Durant’s dry skin has become the talk of social media following Monday’s game between the Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers.
A number of people have roasted the basketball star for his ashy ankles after a picture posted on the SLAM Kicks Twitter account went viral.
“Kevin Durant’s ankles are so ashy that it looks like it’s painful,” tweeted one person.
New Orleans Pelicans’ Isaiah Thomas also chimed in and reacted: “No way KD can be that Ashy!!!!!!!! No way lol. OMG.”
Other people were genuine in their concern about Kevin’s skin condition and slammed the online trolls and memes.
“Kevin Durant getting dragged for not moisturizing his skin to the extent they got ashy and scaly. This guy earns millions of dollars, so it’s tough to assume he doesn’t take care of his own skin. Listen, what if it’s a health condition or something?! Just thinking out loud,” wrote another Twitter user.
Someone else added: “All the jokes about Kevin Durant’s dry ankles are telling all the people you know with skin conditions just how funny you think they are.”

“Jesus Christ, K. Bam sent me the picture and said, “There’s no way K is this ashy.” And I said, “What the f***?” And then I clicked on the link that Bam sent me. That wasn’t even ash. That was f****ng scales,” he said.
Draymond continued: “I have not talked to Kevin yet. I am looking forward to calling him today and getting his opinion. I know he’s going to say, “F*** y’all. Why are you worried about my ankles?” I already know what his response is going to be.”
