So after game 6 ended with another win by the Cavaliers, forcing a game 7 in the finals, Ayesha Curry weighed in on twitter. She accused the NBA of being ‘rigged’ for money or ratings.
Ayesha was attacked for her comments and some even felt she should ‘stay in her place.’
When asked about his wife’s comments, Steph had this to say:
“I was just kind of debriefed on what the security thought happened with some guy that poses with fake credentials and gets backstage at a lot of events, the NBA Finals and all that stuff. “They kind of profiled my father-in-law and thought he was him. 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.
“That was kind of a traumatic situation where her [Ayesha’s] dad almost got arrested. So it was kind of a tough situation to deal with in a hostile environment. All in all, it’s just a game. I hope that everybody is all right.
“When it comes to Twitter and all that, everybody says stuff where you get caught in the moment. After a while, you kind of stand and calm down. Things might not be as you thought. … I don’t fault her from showing some emotion on Twitter.” Source and Image
Do I think she needs to ‘know her place?’ No. I think she should be able to say whatever the hell she wants. She’s no fool. She understands that what she says and does affects her husband because he’s a public figure, an by proxy, so is she. Give her a friggin break for Pete’s sake.
