Steph Curry’s ‘Ayesha Curry CAN cook’ shirt claps back at a Boston bar that insulted his wife’s cooking skills
NBA star Steph Curry, 34, wore a T-shirt defending his wife’s cooking skills Monday after the Golden State Warriors’ Game 5 win over the Boston Celtics, according to NBC Sports.
On Friday, NBC Sports reporter Dalton Johnson shared photos of signs on a sidewalk in Boston that read, “Ayesha Curry can’t cook.” Ayesha, 33, is a cookbook author and once starred in the Food Network show, “Ayesha’s Home Kitchen.”
Another sign read, “Deuce Tatum > Riley Curry,” comparing the son of Celtics star Jayson Tatum to Curry’s oldest daughter. The signs also included an Instagram handle for Game On!, a Boston sports bar.
Representatives for Steph Curry and Game On! did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
When a reporter asked the Warriors guard about his shirt at the postgame press conference, Curry told them to “ask around the room and ask Twitter,” according to NBC Sports.
Following Curry’s response, Warriors fans went to the Game On! Instagram to defend the NBA champion and his wife. Although most commenters stuck to “Warriors in 6” and “Ayesha Curry can cook” in their retorts, others got creative.
“Ayesha curry can cook, just like how warriors been cooking the celtics,” one user wrote.
Curry isn’t afraid to publicly defend his family.
In 2019, People reported that he defended Ayesha in an Instagram Story video after she was mocked for doing the “Milly Rock” dance at the opening of her restaurant International Smoke. The following year, Curry stood up for his wife in her Instagram comments after she got criticism for her new hair color, according to a screenshot taken by Today.
“You beautiful baby. And don’t you let anybody tell you differently ok? I mean it. There’s just a bunch of meanies out there and I don’t like it. I don’t like it one bit. Do you boo boo,” the player wrote.
