Kendall Jenner‘s fans are coming to her side after former NBA player Andrew Bogut had rude things to say about the model earlier this week.
Bogut took a dig at Jenner because of her recent separation from her partner of two years, Phoenix Suns athlete Devin Booker. He insinuated that now that she’s done with this relationship, she’ll most likely go date another person in the NBA.
While it is public knowledge that Jenner was romantically linked to her fair share of basketball players in the past–Blake Griffin and Ben Simmons, to name a few–Bogut took it too far by using misogynistic language to express an opinion on something fans believe he didn’t have to express in the first place.
“With the 2022 @NBA draft completion yesterday, one big name has yet to find a home. Which team will snap up @KendallJenner??” Bogut wrote on his Twitter. “Solid talent, versatile. ?? marks around team culture + habit of endless self promotion. Doctors will need to do medical as body has been banged up.”
Shortly after this post went public, Kendall Jenner fans worked quickly to let him know this type of tweet isn’t okay.

E! News reports many fans didn’t hesitate to express their feelings underneath Andrew Bogut’s tweet. “This is an awful way to speak about a woman,” one fan stated. Another held the same sentiments, commenting, “How have you not deleted this tweet yet?”
Even those who aren’t necessarily Kardashian-Jenner fans spoke out about the situation.
“Dude you saying this because you tried and got rejected… Although i might not be a fan of the kardashians like others , they are gorgeous women, I think your comments come from a place of rejection,” one wrote.
After seeing the outrage from his post, Bogut took to his account to apologize. But it isn’t entirely clear if he was sincere or not.
“I would like to formally apologize for this tweet. My scout take forgot to include the elite level of rebounding. I will do better in the future,” Bogut said.
Kendall Jenner hasn’t responded to either tweet just yet. However, she may not need to, as she has spoken out on similar comments previously. The last time someone alluded to the idea that she “gets passed around” in the NBA, she stated on her Twitter, “they act like i’m not in full control of where i throw this c***h.”
Her iconic comment shut down the comments before. Perhaps a simple retweet of her past tweet will do it again. Stay tuned.
