Young, who is out for the season with a torn ACL in her right knee, tweeted her views against the bill saying that the city shouldn't support same sex marriage. She also participated in a pray-in-protest movement.

While the WNBA supported Young's right to speak, The league didn't condone her viewpoint.

``Sophia has the right to express her point of view, however, I do not share her view,'' WNBA president Laurel Richie said in a statement. ``The WNBA supports diversity and we are committed to the equal and fair treatment of all people.''
