Millions of people attempt to talk to their favorite celebs on Twitter every minute of the day in between posting about what they are watching on TV, what they are eating or making themselves into this smarter, tougher and cooler person than they really are in person. In 99.9% of the cases, the fans (or haters) will never get a response from the rich and famous but that doesn’t seem to be the case with Amare Stoudemire who will take time out of his day to send you a Direct Message (DM) on Twitter letting you know that he’s not that fond of you.
Here’s a recent exchange with a “fan”
Once this story broke (Thanks to BSO) people were coming out like the Sandusky trial.
I personally don’t have an issue with Amare or anybody else on Twitter letting a stranger, especially “internet thugs”, know how they feel. The celeb’s agent or team’s PR people may not like you calling people what Grant Hill doesn’t want you calling people but at the end of the day for Amare as long as the Knicks are winning nobody will care…oh wait.
