Khloe Kardashian and Cleveland Cavaliers big man Tristan Thompson have been dating for quite some time now and there have been whispers that there is something of a sporting curse for athletes (i.e. Reggie Bush, Kris Humphries, Lamar Odom, etc.) that become romantically involved with that particular family.
With that in mind, a Twitter user named @Slimmy97 decided to fire up his social media machine with a tweet (now deleted) that read “Cavs haven’t been playing too well since @KhloeKardashian.”
And, well, Kardashian had a quick and biting response.
The profanity used likely adds to the internet’s joy from this tweet, as Kardashian (rightly) points out that the Cavs are doing just fine. Yes, Cleveland isn’t playing quite as well as the team was early in the season, but a 14-5 record while in full-on regular season mode is more than acceptable for the defending champions. Throw in the fact that LeBron James and company have full knowledge that no team in the Eastern Conference, at least as currently constructed, poses a real playoff threat and the big picture comes into view.
However, the accuracy of the tweet really isn’t what makes this phenomenal, but moreover the profane directness of what transpired here. Tristan Thompson, as an individual, has taken a step back as both Kevin Love and Channing Frye have ascended this season, but Khloe Kardashian isn’t trying to hear any of it and she is more than willing to let you know in vulgar terms.
As for the pair’s relationship, things seem good. Those engagement rumors from October proved to be false, but she raved about him on Jimmy Kimmel Live! just a few weeks ago:
This is your friendly reminder, folks. Don’t tweet untrue and ridiculous things at celebrities. They might (deservedly) clap back, and you might be forced to protect – or delete – your account.
