Not exactly laughing. Ayesha Curry took to Twitter on Sunday, June 26, to hit back at haters who have been trolling her and her husband, Steph, since the Golden State Warriors lost the NBA finals last week.
“It’s the inappropriate photoshopped pictures that are insulting to both me and the other families, husbands, fathers, wives in them 1/2,” she wrote. “I could care less about ‘L’s’ keep sending them. At this point you guys are insulting both sides with the inappropriate photos.”
The photos Ayesha, 27, is referencing are the memes circling the internet in which Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James’ face is superimposed over her husband Steph’s in doctored family photos.
In other images, Ayesha’s face is replaced by a crying Michael Jordan’s in photos of the married couple.
The outspoken basketball wife first made headlines on Thursday, June 16, when she hopped on social media after Steph was ejected for the first time in his career, calling Game 6 “rigged.”
“I’ve lost all respect sorry this is absolutely rigged for money.… Or ratings I’m not sure which,” she wrote in the since-deleted tweet. “I won’t be silent. Just saw it live sry.”
Steph was called out on a foul in the latter half of the fourth quarter and was subsequently ejected after he argued the call and threw his mouthpiece, which later hit the son of one of the Cavaliers’ minority owners.
The NBA star later apologized to the man and shook his hand, and Ayesha took to Twitter to explain that she had written the initial message in the heat of the moment.
“They kind of profiled my father-in-law and thought he was [a known con artist],” Steph later told The Undefeated to explain why tensions and emotions were running so high. “They threatened to arrest him before they checked out his credentials. It’s kind of been an emotional and tough night all the way around.”
