Amare Stoudemire Speaks Out Against BYU, Defends Brandon Davies on Twitter


Amare Stoudemire has made if quite clear that he's not a big fan of Brigham Young University's honor code.

According to the New York Daily News, the Knicks forward used his Twitter account to voice support for BYU's dismissed center Brandon Davies.

Stoudemire criticized BYU for kicking Davies off of their NCAA tournament-bound men's basketball team after he admitted to having premarital sex with his girlfriend.

"Dont ever go to BYU, they kick a Young Educated (Black)Brother OUT OF SCHOOL," Stoudemire tweeted. "The kid had premarital sex. Not suspended, Not Release. Wow!"

Davies violated the school's honor code that forbids sex before marriage, but Stoudemire said he thinks the sophomore forward's punishment is too harsh.

"P.S.With his girlfriend," he added. "Come on BYU don't kick the kid out of school. Let's be honest he is n college. Let's the kid live a little."
