Ayesha Curry Defends Stephen Curry, Says He Didn’t Ignore Young Autograph Seeker on Purpose

Stephen Curry went viral for all the wrong reasons after a video featured him ignoring a young fan desperate to land his autograph. What made it worse is several Warriors players signed and took pictures with the kid prior to Steph’s grand appearance:


Looks bad! But before you join the Twitter mob persecuting Curry for this alleged snub, at least here out Ayesha Curry’s explanation of it all. She’s “tired” of seeing that video go crazy and claims he was merely looking for a family member in the crowd:

So tired of seeing this. He was looking for a family member in a crowd of 100 people which you can’t see on the other side of the camera…

And would never ignore a superfan:

He would never purposefully ignore a squirrel let alone a precious little boy. Demeaning someone to get your followers up much.

Apparently this “tunnel vision” is normal around the Curry household:

No he didn’t. He does the same thing to me at least once a week 😂😂😂. He has tunnel vision. If you had placed a bet you would’ve lost so bad.
