Ayesha Curry is a cookbook author, cooking show host, restaurant owner, Covergirl spokesperson, and a mom to three kids—Riley, Ryan, and Canon—with her husband, NBA superstar Steph Curry. In other words, this is a woman who does not have time for rude people on Instagram.
But this being the Internet, there will always be some troll waiting in the wings with less-than-kind commentary. And when someone recently made a comment about her 10-month-old son’s weight, Ayesha was having none of it.
But let’s back up a bit before we get to her response: Earlier this week, the entire Curry extended family was together to watch Steph’s Golden State Warriors play for a chance to make the NBA Finals against his younger brother, Seth Curry, who is on the Portland Trailblazers. After the Warriors’ victory, the Curry clan posed for a big group photo that included Steph and Ayesha and their three children.
“Infinitely proud of these guys. Gods grace and mercy continues to cover our family and we are so grateful. Not about wins and losses, it’s all about family. Moments like this simply put it all into perspective,” she wrote in the caption. “‘But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.’ – Matthew 6:33” Most of the comments were positive; the feed was filled with fans congratulating the family on the team’s victory and remarking on how adorable (and grown up) the kids look.
It’d be nice if the story just ended there, but one commenter decided to chime in and ask if Ayesha is pregnant again. (Sigh, how many times do we have to tell people that is not a question that needs to be asked?) Anyway, Ayesha took it in stride and replied, “Absolutely not LOL. My 30 lb son is just breaking my back in every Photo.”
To this, another commenter said, “If that kid is 30 lbs he’s got some serious health issues going on.”
Ayesha quickly shut that down, though, with a succinct, “Excuse you? No. Just no.” Soon after, more fans joined in the conversation to support her. “F her! ‘Just NO’ is right! You & your family look fantastic. Your husband is gorgeous & best in NBA. Congratulations to y’all & your fam,” one wrote. Another said, “People are so rude!!! You look beautiful and your kids are adorable!!!!!”
We wholeheartedly agree. Nice shot, Ayesha.
