Former NBA player Amar’e Stoudemire is catching some heat, after he was asked whether he’d mind having a gay teammate.
Right after, Stoudemire was asked if he was only joking, and he said this:
Other I.P.L. players were asked the same question as the power-forward, but they all said they’d be fine with having a gay teammate.
If Stoudemire does get fined for his comments it wouldn’t be the first time. During the 2012 NBA f-season, he was fined $50,000 for tweeting a gay slur to a fan. “Fuck you,” he wrote after being criticized. “I don’t have to do anything, fag.”
He later apologized.
Ex-NBA Player John Amaechi, who is openly gay, slammed Stat’s latest statement.
