It seems like everyone has something to say about Ayesha Curry’s deleted tweet accusing the NBA of being rigged, including ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith.
On Friday’s episode of Fresh Take, Smith said that if “ Savannah [were] acting like this,” LeBron James would have come under fire and how Savannah is just as “gorgeous” as Ayesha (as if perceived beauty is remotely relevant to this issue).
In his long-winded rant, he also accused the mother of two of “stepping out of pocket.”
“I’m trying to sound as appropriate as I possibly can. You are the wife of Steph Curry. What you do is a reflection on him. What you do is a reflection on the organization he works for. You have to be mindful of that. You can’t get caught up in your own individual emotions and having this zest to speak out, to the point where it compromises your husband,” he said.
He then stressed that Ayesha should be quiet and well-behaved like Savannah.
“Well, [Savanah is] wonderful inside and out. She sits there. She doesn’t bring any attention to herself. She never tweets and goes out there and calls out the league and stuff like that. And nobody, nobody is more scrutinized than her husband. But yet, she thinks about how she represents him, and as a result, she doesn’t do that,” he said.
Well you all know Ayesha was not having any of this:
And neither were her fans:
Real talk: Who hasn’t Tweeted anything that they regret? And Ayesha explained her knee-jerk reaction.
What do you think? Does Smith have a point or is he way off base?
