For Real, Ayesha, Shut Up

So none of my friends like Steph Curry. Not one of them. They all hate the media coverage that comes with him, which is ironic, because they all love LeBron (or at least they have since the start of this year’s Finals). I’ve defended the dude, because I don’t really think there’s a whole lot to hate. Sure, he’s overrated badly due to the ESPN effect. But he works hard with his shot, he’s not overtly cocky, he does charity. I don’t like his style of play because he plays weak, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like him as a person. Other than his soft play on the court, the only thing I don’t like about Steph is this – his choice of wife.

For real, Ayesha Curry needs to shut up. Like forever. Delete all your social media. She acts like she’s so marginalized, as if she has all of the world’s struggles on her doorstep. Like, hello? The worst thing that happens to you are the mean things people tweet at or about you (or in this case, blog about). Now, she’s bitching about all of the memes about her all over the internet. I’m sorry that in this age of social media, people like to pick on complainers, and you are one of them, Ayesha. Quit your bitching about people making fun of you, because frankly, it’s for good reason. Whenever I say stupid stuff, I expect my friends to pick on me. I do it to them when they say stupid stuff. And guess what? It’s warranted. You wanna know why? Because stupid words in stupid context crossed my/their lips. So when you go off about the Finals being rigged because your husband didn’t win, or you’re not ‘gonna let the haters phase you’ when they clearly own real estate in your head, you can’t be surprised when tough guys on the internet are going to say stuff to you from the safety of their iPhones.[1]

I’m not saying people are right or wrong for doing what they do. I’m just saying you can’t be surprised by it. You will not eliminate keyboard warriors by being a keyboard warrior yourself. So why try? Why create bad press for yourself? Because in your case, and your husband’s case, for that matter, any press isn’t good press. In the span of a seven game series, your husband went from super likable to extremely polarizing from conducting himself poorly on the court. And you made it worse because you can’t control yourself on social media. You continue to make it worse by implying this issue that you see on your screen is this big problem. It’s a sad day when you are the biggest reason to not like your husband, who realistically isn’t doing anything wrong himself.

Pop quiz Ayesha – you don’t have a hard life. At all. Maybe you did when you were younger, I don’t know. I don’t really care to research and find out. But if you don’t like the way that Twitter, Instagram or Facebook work, then get off them. You’re not that much of a public figure. You don’t matter any more or any less than the rest of us in the grand scheme of things. If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen. It’s really quite that simple.

[1] That in no way means I’m okay with the dude that said he was going to kill her daughter or called the kid a slur or anything like that. That’s obviously not okay in the slightest.
