If the above language offended anybody I apologize, but this was the best way to show exactly what Amare Stoudemire did. As you can see Stat got called out by a fan for his mediocre season. But the way Amare replied was a bit shocking. Most athletes just ignore these types of things, Stat however decided to try to fight back.¬†Look, I’ll be honest, my main problem with this whole thing is the kid that decided to snitch on Stoudemire to deadspin. There is no less honorable thing to do then instigate a fight and then end up getting somebody else in trouble for what you started.

 

Obviously the word should not be used. But come on, we know he didn’t mean it as an insult to gays, there is really no reason to try to vilify Stoudemire. He made a mistake by responding to the fan, but I don’t think that means we should all of a sudden say the guy needs to be educated on peoples rights. It is a word, the more people get offended by it, the more it will be used in an offensive way.
