Kim Kardashian and Draymond Green

When he’s not active on the court, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green usually works on his podcast or tweets about his thoughts on the NBA right now. His thoughts regularly attract attention as he’s one of the brightest minds in the game.

But on Wednesday, Green used his superior well-known defensive skills to address the issue on Kim Kardashian’s 2022 Met Gala outfit.

Green has Kardashian’s back

Just to give a quick brief, Kardashian is currently receiving a lot of backlash for her 2022 Met Gala appearance that took place on Monday. The celebrity wore an iconic dress once used by the famous actress Marilyn Monroe, which she reportedly lost 16 pounds for. The Hollywood bombshell went on a crash diet and admitted that she dropped seven kilograms in three weeks just to fit into the dress.

Kardashian’s diet method didn’t sit well with naysayers and even parents, who believed she wasn’t setting an example for the children and teenagers who looked up to her.

Green took notice of this (yes, while he’s currently focused on the NBA Playoffs) and shared how absurd it is for people to judge Kardashian’s choice of going on a crash diet.

That’s not all. Green continued his rant and called out these parents for blaming Kardashian’s inability to use her platform the right way. According to Draymond, it should be every parent’s responsibility to raise their children and not depend on celebrities like Kim K to teach them what’s right or wrong.

They said the diet was bad for kids. Question… Why do people think it’s up to celebrities to raise their kids for them? It’s baffling. If you don’t want your kid to eat like her, it’s simple… Teach them otherwise,” Green said.

You are FAILING as a parent! And, it’s tough to fail at something that doesn’t have a grade/handbook to even define what passing or failing actually means. Do better people and stop expecting folks you see on TV to do for your kid what your parents did or should’ve done for you,” Green added.

Green wins the celebrity defender award of the year

Green did the right job defending Kardashian’s choice of going on a strict and what is perceived as an unhealthy and problematic diet by many. After all, it’s Kardashian’s life which means she has the right to do what she wants.

Yes, it’s essential for every celebrity to utilize their platform the right way (similar to what Green regularly does), but it’s not like she’s hurting people or promoting bad politics while she’s at it.

Good on Draymond for calling out the naysayers and serving them the hard truth about life. This is why he’s a defensive specialist, on and off the court.
