The comment was left on her Mother's Day post.
The Currys are a couple who typically keep themselves away from salacious headlines, but in the last couple of weeks, we've seen their comments at the center of media attention. Ayesha found herself on the receiving end of backlash following her appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk where she discussed disliking her NBA star husband Steph Curry's groupies and wondering if she's still attractive because she's not getting any attention herself.
Ayesha's words made her a target of ridicule in the media, but she insists that she has been misunderstood. For Mother's Day, she shared a silly photo on Instagram of herself with Steph and the caption read, "Our mamas gave us common sense and that’s not common. Thank you mamas we love you!" Someone commented, "Attention at its finest," a response that echos many of the criticisms pointed at Ayesha.
"This is exactly what I mean," she replied. "Speaking without examining the true context the true context for yourself. Don't read the headlines. Watch the show. Everyone's gone crazy and my husband and I are over here sober as a gopher because I know what I said. Don't need it, don't want it. Just an observation. Willingness to speak on your thoughts unashamedly is being secure. Not the other way around. That part. Goooood day."
Steph has recently publicly supported his wife by adding a photo of the two on his Instagram Story and writing, "Proud of you for being authentic and putting yourself out there-not being afraid of the potential bullsh*t and nonsense that could and did come at you. Way more positive than negative with all of this. Keep being you. I love you."
