Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, responding to Under Armour’s CEO calling President Donald Trump an “asset” to the United States earlier this week, jokingly told The Mercury News that he agreed — if you remove “the ET from asset.”

Curry is one of Under Armour’s most high-profile spokesmen, with a deal that pays him at least $4 million annually — and gives him a stake in the shoe and apparel company through 2024.

On Tuesday, Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank expressed support for President Trump in a CNBC interview, saying: “To have such a pro-business president is something that is a real asset for the country.”

The comments quickly became a hot topic on social media, with a hashtag calling for a boycott of the company. Plank released a statement Wednesday clarifying his comments, saying they were from a business perspective and not reflective of the company’s social stance.
