Gay Ex-NBA Player Blasts Amar'e Stoudemire 'Don't Flatter Yourself, Petulant Man-Child'

3/1/2017 8:41 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0301-john-amaechi-amare-stoudemire-tmzEx-NBA player John Amaechi -- one of the most famous openly gay athletes on the planet -- has a message for Amar'e Stoudemire ... DON'T FLATTER YOURSELF.

After Stoudemire told Israeli media that he'd refuse to be in the same locker room as a gay teammate, Amaechi told TMZ Sports he's sick and tired of negative role models like A.S

"These are serious times and we need serious people to lead important conversations, not petulant man-children spouting puerile prejudice," Amaechi told us. 

"There is already one too many of those holding court in the media, and the world is poorer for it. Within the world of sport there are plenty of true role models -- on and off the floor -- whose words are carefully chosen to uplift and integrate society not join Trump and his grinning cabal in their 'locker room banter.'"

"In these tumultuous times, these true role models are the men and women whose voices we need to disseminate to every corner, not a braying jackass making a desperate grab for relevance amongst a constituency destined for extinction."

"Lastly, could someone please tell this man to stop flattering himself. It’s embarrassing."

We also spoke with Hudson Taylor, founder of Athlete Ally -- one of the biggest LGBT groups in sports -- who explained the impact Stoudemire's comments have on young basketball players.

NFL's David Parry Cussed Out Cops During Arrest 'F**gots, P**sies, Fat F**ks'

2/28/2017 7:28 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0228-david-parry-getty-01Indianapolis Colts lineman David Parry spewed homophobic slurs and cussed out cops during his drunken arrest in Scottsdale over the weekend ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports.

The 24-year-old defensive lineman was way past belligerent when confronted by Scottsdale PD for attacking a taxi cart driver and stealing his vehicle early Saturday morning.

Cops say he was so drunk, he was spewing nonsense including, "Arrest my cooperation" and "who did I have auto theft with?"

The incident quickly turned combative -- cops say Parry called them "f**king f**gots," and called out some of the officers as, "fat f**k" and "pu**yboy."

He also looked at all the responding officers and told each one individually, "You're a bitch."

One of the cops told Parry he was done talking with him, to which the NFL player responded, "That's what the f**k I thought, bitch -- you have nothing on me."

Parry was asked how much he drank that night and responded, "A lot" and "more than I should have."

Cops say he was so hammered, he was dry heaving at the jail and needed a puke trash can ... just in case.

One last note, cops say Parry is so big they struggled to handcuff him and ultimately needed LEG IRONS to secure his wrists.

Parry was booked for several crimes including robbery, theft, resisting arrest, DUI and more. 

Kellyanne Conway Kneeling Couch Potato for HBCU Photo Op with Prez

2/28/2017 6:52 AM PST

0228-kellyanne-conway-ap-01Kellyanne Conway threw manners out the Oval Office window to take a snapshot of Donald Trump with leaders of black universities and colleges.

Kellyanne left her high heel shoes on as she knelt on a couch to take a photo of the prez and dozens of reps for Historically Black Colleges and Universities Monday. She immediately got ripped on social media for the extreme lack of etiquette.

If you're inclined to give her the benefit of the doubt ... she was just trying to get a better angle for the shot. On the other hand, kneeling in the Oval almost always gets ya in trouble.

The Oscars 'Moonlight' Wins Best Picture, But 'La La' Gets Trophy In EPIC Screwup!!

2/26/2017 9:58 PM PST
Breaking News

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway pulled a Steve Harvey -- announcing "La La Land" won Best Picture, when it was really supposed to go to "Moonlight" ... and the fallout was hysterical. 

In the greatest Oscars ending ever ... Warren and Faye called the 'La La' crew up onstage -- and they were several minutes into their acceptance speeches before someone figured out the massive screwup.

If you missed it you gotta see how it played out -- stage managers looked like Keystone Cops running around onstage. To their credit, the 'La La' folks graciously handed over their Oscars when the "Moonlight" cast and crew came up.

As for what went wrong? Watch ... Warren's explanation is an instant Hollywood classic, but basically he and Faye were handed the wrong card -- the one for Emma Stone's Best Actress win ... which had been handed out just before Best Picture.

Price Waterhouse just explained the obvious ... "The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected." Truth be told, not immediately.  Also, why were there 2 "Best Actress" cards?

And get this -- Leo DiCaprio might be unwittingly involved! Best we can tell ... he walked off the stage holding Emma's envelope after her acceptance speech. We don't know what happened backstage, but somehow that card -- or a duplicate of it -- ended up in Warren and Faye's hands.

You are not alone, Steve Harvey.

Naomie Harris I Won for 'Moonlight' But I Feel Bad for 'La La Land'

2/27/2017 6:17 AM PST

Naomie Harris was happy enough her movie won Best Picture, but she clearly feels the pain of the "La La Land" cast and crew.

We got Naomie leaving the Vanity Fair party Sunday night in Bev Hills, and the luster of winning clearly lost a little of its shine.

Steve-O Jumps Off a Bridge From a Moving Trampoline

EXCLUSIVE

Steve-O wasn't satisfied to just jump off a bridge ... instead, he earned some style points by throwing a trampoline into the mix, and he's lucky to be alive.

The former "Jackass" star was in Tampa, FL Saturday pulling off the new stunt -- leaping off a high bridge into the Intracoastal Waterway from a trampoline mounted to the back of a pickup.

Seconds after his leap, Steve's friends shouted ... he could be dead. As it was, surviving was NOT pretty. 

As for WHY in the world he did this? He's Steve-O.

Neil deGrasse Tyson Blasts Kyrie Irving Stop With the Flat Earth Stupidity!!

2/24/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Neil deGrasse Tyson has a message for Kyrie Irving ... KEEP YOUR DUMB FLAT EARTH BS OUTTA SCIENCE ... saying the world would be a better place if Irving sticks to the court.

Irving caused a stir earlier this week when he appeared on a podcast and said -- completely seriously -- that the earth is flat. That's right kids, your favorite point guard is a flat earther.

We talked to Tyson, one of the smartest men on earth, and he told us he has zero problem with Irving's outrageous claim, as long as Kyrie never does anything remotely having to do with scientific thought.

Bonus shade? Tyson gives us a suggestion of what should happen to every single flat earther left on the surface of this round planet ... and it's pretty hilarious.

WNBA Legend Chamique Holdsclaw Calls Out Jameis Winston ... Women Have A Voice, A LOUD One

2/23/2017 3:34 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

One of the greatest female basketball players ever is calling out Jameis Winston ... saying the time of women being silent, submissive and meek is OVER ... and he'd better get used to it.

TMZ Sports spoke with Chamique Holdsclaw, a former 2-time NCAA player of the year and 6-time WNBA All-Star who says Jameis was WAY OFF when he told elementary school kids that women are "supposed to be silent, polite and gentle."

"Young girls to be silent? That's not the way that I was raised," Holdsclaw told us.

"When I'm out there ministering to young girls, I'm telling them you gotta be your authentic self ... you can't be stuck in a box. You can't heed to traditional stereotypes of what a woman should be."

She didn't stop there ...

"We have to teach these men and boys not to tear us down either and not limit us with their expectations or perceptions of us."

Best part of the vid? When we asked how a group of WNBA players woulda reacted to Jameis telling THEM that ... here's a hint, he probably would've needed an Uber.

Golden Tate Jameis Winston Was Misunderstood ... He's No Sexist

2/23/2017 9:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Detroit Lions star Golden Tate is DEFENDING Jameis Winston -- saying he understands the message the QB was trying to send to elementary school kids ... and it was NOT a sexist one.

"I personally understand what he was saying," Tate tells TMZ Sports.

"He's saying, 'Hey men, lead your families. Step up when you see something that's not going right. When you see someone abusing a woman or verbally abusing a woman or something like that, stand up.' That's all he's saying I think. I mean, I get it."

Tate says people should focus on Winston's bigger message -- that all kids can achieve their goals in life if they work hard enough.

"Keep it up, Jameis. Keep balling and keep changing this world. People are always gonna misunderstand you."

Harrison Ford Video of Taxiway Landing

2/21/2017 5:44 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Harrison Ford's taxiway landing last Monday was caught on video, and it promises to be the centerpiece of the FAA investigation.

The video was captured by cameras trained on the runways at John Wayne Airport in Orange County. It shows Ford's approach which came dangerously close to an American Airlines 737, which was on the taxiway when the actor's plane passed overhead.

A man in the terminal who took a picture of the landing told us Ford had misjudged the runway and banked sharply before landing on the taxiway, but  that is not reflected in this video.
