Knicks star Amar'e Stoudemire made an about-turn Saturday after originally ripping Brigham Young University for removing Brandon Davies from the men's basketball team for having sex with his girlfriend.
BYU dismissed Davies from the team Tuesday for violating the Mormon school's Honor Code, which forbids students from having premarital sex. BYU is a private school owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
"Don't ever go to BYU," Stoudemire wrote on his Twitter account Friday, before going on to reference Davies' race. "They kick a Young Educated (Black) Brother OUT OF SCHOOL. The kid had premarital sex. Not suspended, Not Release. Wow!"
A second post read, "P.S. With his girlfriend. Come on BYU don't kick the kid out of school. Let's be honest he is in college. Let's the kid live a little."
But on Saturday, Stoudemire tweeted a completely alternate view on Twitter.
"I totally understand the actions of BYU, I totally respect the school an (sic) the conduct rules. BYU has a great athletic program," Stoudemire wrote, drawing criticism from his followers on the social networking site.
