NO CHILL: Ayesha Curry Sends Twitter Into A Fantastic Meltdown
Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors may currently be on a mission to break every NBA season record that ever existed, but it turns out that it's his wife that owns the headlines when it comes to football Sundays.
Ayesha Curry is married to the best (at this current moment) basketball player on earth, she has two adorable daughters, and a whole lot of money. Needless to say it's hard to imagine that she's not really loving life right now. I know I would be if I were her.
Which is why all of the manufactured Twitter "outrage" sparked by her completely acceptable tweet on Saturday night is likely not to rattle her too much; nor should it. Still, it proved to spark one of the more entertaining Twitter topics of 2015.
"Ayesha Curry"quickly rose to a nationally trending topic on Sunday in Tweetland after this quick musing on her fashion preferences went viral:
Listen, was the tweet a little self-congratulatory? Sure. But she wasn't shaming anyone specifically; she just made a general statement. Plus as we just discussed, Mrs. Curry is living the high-life right now and shes feeling herself.
Let a girl live a little, internet.
While there were plenty of supporters of her statement, the backlash was predictably louder and more abundant...at first.
So a bunch of women got their panties in a twist trying to defend something that wasn't under attack and inexplicably introduced Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian into the mix in the process. Then somehow while they took turns using feminisim to back up their various gripes, the tides turned.
In a rare turn of events, outraged Twitter was bumrushed and overtaken by sensible Twitter. It was truly a beautiful thing to see, and it became an opportunity for some great Twitter-related jokes.
My personal favorites were the endless references to all of the various real and/or imagined Twitter subgroups that spent the better part of their Saturday night and Sunday morning airing their greivances, so to speak.
Spoiler Alert: In the end, the rich, beautiful and successful woman who is also the wife of one of the most successful athletes on the planet got the last laugh. I'm sure you're shocked.
