Khloe Kardashian profanely blasts troll blaming her for Cavs’ struggles
The Cleveland Cavaliers snapped a troubling three-game losing streak courtesy of Monday’s 116-112 win over the Toronto Raptors. At some point during the game, Khloe Kardashian — who of course is in a high-profile relationship with Cavs center Tristan Thompson — curiously decided to respond to some random Twitter troll who placed the blame on her for the team’s recent struggles.
And let’s just say she didn’t hold back or handle the trolling with any sense of decorum. Kardashian elected to profanely blast the individual using language that isn’t fit to print.
Reacting to a tweet from @Slimmy97 that read, “Cavs haven’t been playing too well since Khloe Kardashian,” the reality starlet bluntly stated, absent the — ahem — more colorful language, that it’s ludicrous “(thinking) I have that much power.”
The tweet in question — viewer discretion advised, obviously, can be seen on Kardashian’s official Twitter account here.
The notion that a fan, albeit a misinformed one who takes to trolling on Twitter — would blame a significant other for the struggles for a player and/or his or her team is nothing new. Countless spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends and the like have been called out for their purported responsibility for something obviously well beyond their realm of control. Just ask Olivia Munn, longtime girlfriend of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, about it. And she’s only one example of the silly practice.
On the other hand, even LeBron James reportedly even has expressed some concern about Kardashian’s presence and the potential for distraction. So there’s that as well.
For what it’s worth, Thompson, who began dating Lamar Odom’s ex in September, scored six points and pulled down 14 rebounds in Monday’s Cavaliers victory. He is averaging 6.7 points per game this season, well below his 9.5-point career average.
