Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire Hurls Gay Slur at Fan, Eventually Apologizes

| by Alex Groberman

It’s not easy being Amar’e Stoudemire these days.

Between dealing with injuries, trying to mesh with Carmelo Anthony, being an object of ridicule for his on-the-court performance, being an object of ridicule for his off-the-court fire extinguisher-punching and all the of the inevitable trade rumors that he’ll have to deal with this summer – you can’t really fault Stoudemire for being testy.

And testy is exactly what he was this weekend, when a fan more or less trolled him on Twitter for no real reason.

Here is a short recap of what happened, via the good folks at Deadspin:

Amar’e sent out this tweet: “Workout complete. 7am-11:30am.”

A guy going by the handle @Bferrelli then sent him a message saying: “you better come back a lot stronger and quicker to make up for this past season mannnnnn deadasss!!!”

To which Amar’e apparently replied via DM: “F**k you, I don’t have to do any thing f*g,”

Eventually, presumably having come to his senses, Amar’e sent an apology: “I apologize for what I said earlier. I just got off the plane and had time to think about it. Sorry bro!! No excuses. Won’t happen again.”

So there you go. Make of this incident what you will.

(Kudos Deadspin)
