Ayesha Curry Talks Getting Roasted On Social Media
Ayesha Curry has become an internet fixture in just a few short months, but she says it isn’t all roses being a “celebrity chef,” basketball wife, and polarizing figure for all of Black Twitter.
Ayesha says she never thought too hard about her presence on social media, and wasn’t prepared for the onslaught of memes and roasting that came her and her family’s way — ESPECIALLY after her little declaration that the entire NBA is rigged for money and/or ratings since her hubby wasn’t winning.
When we started on social media, we just thought it was the cool thing to do,” she says. “We didn’t know it would turn into this big beast of a thing. I think now that it’s turned into this whole ‘brand’ thing, I want to make sure I stay transparent and honest and true to myself.”
This openness has given her a relatable quality that’s earned admiration from fans, but it’s also landed her in hot water — most recently when she called the NBA “rigged” on Twitter following the Golden State Warriors’ loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in game 6 of the finals. “I was just a fan in that moment so I didn’t think about the ramifications,” she says. “I regret the way that I voiced how hurt I was. I felt hurt for [Steph], and I didn’t mean to offend anybody. Obviously, what I wrote is not what I think about what he does for a living.”
Still, she admits she does let the negativity get the best of her at times. “Since all this hoopla has happened, I have been a victim of reading the comments,” she says. “It hurts my feelings because I didn’t intend to hurt anybody. I apologized for it, and I feel like people should move on. There’s a lot more serious things going on in the world.”
Hmmm…sounds like someone has no problem dishing it out but a bit of a hard time taking it when it comes back her way, doesn’t it? Either way, ya’all leave Ayesha alone. She just wants to be a pure good wife and show you guys some recipes and cute babies, after all…
What can we say? With great follower count comes great slanderability…
