People quickly responded to the subtweet:

Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns criticized teammate Anthony Edwards’ diet after they lost to the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night. He said he could do a “better job” helping the young guard take care of his body.
When asked about Edwards’ poor performance against the Spurs and whether he could be better prepared to play back-to-back games, Towns said Edwards likes to joke about his diet, which apparently includes a lot of Popeyes stops.
“Maybe I could do a better job teaching him how to take care of his body and diet and everything,” Towns shared. This will be at my expense. I know you all think it’s funny here when he talks about Popeye and all that shit. That doesn’t make me happy to hear. We’re high-level athletes,” Towns said. “But also, it falls on me too, you know. The old cliché falls on you. Everyone wants to take the blame, but it’s all of us.”
It is well known that Edwards loves Popeye. Back in January 2022, a reporter from Minnesota named Dane Moore asked Ant if he could give up Popeyes.
“It’s tough,” Edwards admitted. “That’s the hardest thing.”
Moore, on the other hand, says Edwards entered this season having lost nine pounds and dropped his body fat to nearly 7 percent.
Anthony Edwards says he’s back to 230 pounds and 7.4% body.
When he came into camp, Edwards was 239 (as he is on the roster now). He said his body fat was 11% entering camp – and he said that was because he took 4 days off from training right before camp started.
