Ayesha Curry was mocked by Twitter trolls for having a good time at the opening of her restaurant this week, and her husband had her back as usual.
Mrs. Curry and celebrity chef Michael Mina were in Del Mar, Calif., to open their fourth International Smoke location. Ayesha was enjoying the night and decided to bust out the popular “Milly Rock” dance, which drew some criticism from the bowels of the internet.

After Ayesha was taunted with several memes and tweets, Stephen Curry responded to the trolls with an Instagram live video.

“Slow news day today I see, huh? Just make sure y’all send me the video of you dancing at your own restaurant opening,” Steph said.
Steph and Ayesha always have each other’s backs, which we saw during the playoffs with the way Ayesha went at Drake on social media. This time, it was Steph who decided to fight off the trolls.
Ayesha Curry admits she sends husband Steph “spicy” photos to keep things fresh while he’s on the road.
Ayesha was on E! News’ “Daily Pop” to talk about her new show “Family Food Fight”. She was asked whether she sends Steph “spicy photos” while he’s on the road and said she sends him “hundreds. Hundreds of them.”
Ayesha was then asked if she was worried about Steph being hacked and the photos going public.
“Absolutely! And he won’t delete them off his phone,” Ayesha said. “And he’s not that secure, this phone. It’s actually one of the scariest things in my life. But that’s why I (only take them) neck down.”
So that’s the strategy: only go neck down that way you cannot be positively identified as being part of the photo. But if Steph’s phone were ever hacked and the pictures came up, people would know who they came from.
Ayesha, who has three children with Steph, recently complained about craving attention that has gone away now that she’s a mother. She even opened up about a botched plastic surgery she endured.
Here’s video of her interview:
The Toronto Raptors fan who made a repulsive comment about Ayesha Curry on live television after Game 2 has been arrested and is facing a charge.
Tristan Warkentin, a 28-year-old from Toronto, was arrested Thursday and charged with “Mischief – Interfere with Lawful Operation of Property.” The charge stems from Warkentin appearing on CP24 News and making an explicit remark about Curry, the wife of Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry.
Toronto Police say Warkentin was arrested because he was made aware that he was on live television and still chose to say what he said. He is scheduled to appear in court on July 11.
Ayesha Curry previously made headlines during the NBA Finals for responding to Drake trolling Steph, but there’s no place for what Warkentin said. He deserves to face consequences for it.
The Golden State Warriors have already engaged in plenty of trash talk with Drake after just one game of the NBA Finals, and Stephen Curry’s wife Ayesha appears to be getting in on the fun as well.
Drake got into a friendly back-and-forth with Curry during the Toronto Raptors’ Game 1 win, and the rapper picked a piece of lint out of Curry’s hair during the exchange. He then trolled Curry over it on Instagram and said he is selling the lint on eBay.
Ayesha later chimed in by suggesting a charitable organization to donate the proceeds to:

We’re guessing Drake loves every second of it. In fact, there has been some talk that he may have given Curry a subtle zing through Ayesha’s Instagram page when he liked the following photo of Mrs. Curry:

Ayesha infamously said recently that she is jealous of all the female attention Steph gets and she feels like it has been years since she got similar attention from men.
Of course, all of this is in good fun. Drake actually has a good relationship with Curry and several Warriors players, and there’s no better evidence of that than the tattoos he covered up for Game 1.
Ayesha Curry has made some headlines during the postseason due to her openness with the public.
Unafraid to publicly share some of her insecurities, Curry, the wife of two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry, said in an interview with Red Table Talk last week that she wished she had more attention from men.
“Something that really bothers me, and honestly has given me a sense of a little bit of an insecurity, is the fact that yeah there are all these women, like, throwing themselves (at him), but me, like the past 10 years, I don’t have any of that,” Ayesha said. “I have zero – this sounds weird – but, like, male attention, and so then I begin to internalize it, and I’m like, ‘Is something wrong with me?'”
Now a week later, in an interview with Working Mother, Curry discussed the botched plastic surgery she underwent after the birth of her second child, Ryan. Ayesha says she underwent the plastic surgery to help her postpartum depression.
“I didn’t realize at the time, but after having Ryan, I was battling a bit of postpartum that lingered for a while. It came in the form of me being depressed about my body,” Curry told Working Mother. “So I made a rash decision. The intention was just to have them lifted, but I came out with these bigger boobs I didn’t want. I got the most botched boob job on the face of the planet. They’re worse now than they were before. I would never do anything like that again, but I’m an advocate of if something makes you happy, who cares about the judgment?”
Both admissions from Ayesha are along the same lines; she’s acknowledged insecurities about her appearance. It takes a lot of courage to make these admissions public, especially when she received some backlash for asking for male attention, though she’s not new to the harassment.
Despite her postpartum depression after the couple’s second child, they had a third child who was born last year. Ayesha says they are probably done growing their family.

If Houston Rockets fans refuse to eat at Stephen Curry’s wife’s restaurant just because they hate the Golden State Warriors so much, the two-time MVP will be more than happy to compensate for their stubbornness.
International Smoke, Ayesha Curry’s restaurant, is set to open a location in Houston next month. While no one has had the pleasure of dining there yet, Rockets fans are already flooding the restaurant’s Yelp page with 1-star reviews.

Y'all it's gotten so much worse. There are now 47 reviews and it's basically Warriors and Rockets fans going back and forth turning Yelp into a Twitter feud pic.twitter.com/ZSt3eWKIeH

On Wednesday night, Steph Curry defended his wife and gave the restaurant a plug.

There’s already an International Smoke location in the Bay Area, and it has been incredibly popular since it opened late last year. Given the way some Rockets fans treated Ayesha Curry after a playoff game this season, it’s no surprise they’re trying to sabotage her new restaurant.
Families of professional athletes are used to being taunted on the road, but Stephen Curry’s wife Ayesha says one Rockets fan crossed the line following Houston’s win over the Golden State Warriors in Game 5.
As Ayesha and some other members of Curry’s family were leaving the Toyota Center on Thursday, a fan began taunting Mrs. Curry and telling her it’s “Houston time.” Here’s a video of the exchange:

While the fan was certainly being obnoxious, it seemed like nothing more than a Rockets supporter talking trash and Ayesha giving it back. However, she is eight months with hers and Steph’s third child, and she said on Twitter Friday that the fan bumped her belly and asked her “doesn’t losing feel like getting punched in the gut?”
The fact that you have the audacity to post this after this man bumped me in my 8 month pregnant belly asking and I quote “doesn’t losing feel like getting punched in the gut?” And continued to follow me and taunt me with his camera is beyond me…but “This is America” right.
— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) May 25, 2018
I thought it was an accident at first because it was crowded and then he made that gut comment and continued to follow me. I should’ve got him in the face instead of saving his life by removing the cigarette he was swinging around in my face. Wish there was full footage

I don’t have time for this anymore today y’all. It is what it is. I know people see what they see and believe what they choose to believe. I’m done defending myself against weird grown creeps for the day. Praying people like this get help and peace of mind. https://t.co/G581YU3LKW

Curry went on to say that the fans at the Toyota Center were actually “wonderful” and that she only had an issue with the fan in the video and a few others.
Ayesha has opened herself up for criticism by sending some controversial tweets about games in the past, but there’s a difference between banter and getting physical. If a Rockets fan really did bump her intentionally, he should be held accountable.
