Watch what you say on Twitter because one day, it just might cost you.

According to Yahoo! News, New York Knick Amar’e Stoudemire just got served a $50,000 fine “for using offensive and derogatory language in a Twitter message” by NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Tuesday.

After dropping the anti-gay F bomb via DM to a fan @BFerrelli who tweeted that the power forward should “come back stronger to make up for this past season,” the 29-year-old’s private message was posted as a screen shot that read: “”F*** you. I don’t have to do any thing f****t.” Stoudemire then rushed to apologize, blaming a lengthy workout for his curtness.

The NBA has been known for fining foul-mouth players in the past such as Chicago Bulls’ Joakim Noah and Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant. Now the lens-rocking baller will have to pay up and shut up.
