Tweet: "Fuck you. I don't have to do anything fag."

Amar’e Stoudemire is arguably the most emotionally sensitive player in the NBA. Need a recap of his fight with the fire extinguisher after a playoff loss against the Heat? Didn’t think so. The All-Star forward tweeted about finishing an offseason workout when follower Brian Ferrelli (@BFerrelli) put him on blast for his weak play this season. Ferrelli was then greeted with a profane gay slur. If that wasn’t enough, Stoudemire posted the tweet on Gay Pride weekend. He apologized shortly after.
