Ayesha Curry couldn’t contain her frustration after watching her husband, Stephen Curry, of the Golden State Warriors foul out, then get ejected in the fourth quarter of his team’s 115-101 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in game 6 of the NBA Finals. Thursday, June 16.
“I’ve lost all respect sorry this is absolutely rigged for money… Or ratings in not sure which. I won’t be silent . Just saw it live sry,” Ayesha typed on her Twitter account.
Cleveland was up by a score of 99-87 with 4:22 left in the game. LeBron James had just grabbed a rebound off of a missed free throw from Golden State’s Klay Thompson, when Curry was called for his sixth foul while reaching in on James.
Stephen angrily reacted by throwing his mouth piece into the stands, hitting a fan. At that point the referees sent him to the locker room.
Ayesha thought it was a bad call and hopped on Twitter before cooling down. She later deleted her initial tweet and apologized.
“Tweeted in the heat of the moment because the call was uncalled for,” she later wrote. “Police racial profiled my father and told him to remove credentials and tried to arrest him. It’s been a long night for me. I apologize. I’m okay that we lost… I just can’t take people coming at my family for absolutely no reason. Something I don’t understand or stand for.”
Cleveland has stormed back from a 3 games to 1 deficit to tie the championship series at 3 wins apiece. The deciding 7th game will be played on Sunday, June 19, at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
