Kendrick Perkins Curses out Draymond Green and Calls Him Fake Tough Guy in Deleted Video Responding to ‘Coon’ Comment

In the black community calling someone ‘coon’ is the like an ultimate form of disrespect. It’s essentially a way of saying you put your integrity and self respect aside to please a white counterpart by acting a way you usually wouldn’t, whether it’s boss, girlfriend, husband, family, friend, etc.. Naturally Kendrick Perkins took major offense to this, and went absolutely berserk in a response video that he later deleted. In the footage Kendrick Perkins called Draymond Green a fake tough guy, and claimed that NBA players talk about him behind his back. Take listen to Kendrick Perkins cursing out Draymond Green in the deleted footage.

Interestingly enough Kendrick Perkins has actually been battling coon allegations from Black twitter ever since he publicly supported Rachel Nichols when that whole drama with Maria Taylor leaked to the media. Back then he also publicly addressed the backlash he was receiving saying that the only people he needs to make happy is his wife and kids.

Still yet Draymond Green went way too far using that term to describe a fellow brother that has found success in the media world. He should be happy for Kendrick Perkins not trying to tear him down, and convince him to change up his style.

In any case it seems like this beef is over, because based on him deleting the video above it seems ESPN made the call and told him to chill out.
