Ayesha Curry was feeling good at the opening of her new restaurant Tuesday night, but the positivity ended once video leaked of her dancing. After trolls took aim at the celebrity chef, her NBA star spouse jumped to her defense.
Steph Curry was present at the July 16 opening of International Smoke in Del Mar, California. It’s the fourth location of the restaurant that the star has launched.
“Yesterday was a dream. We celebrated our 4th @internationalsmoke opening in Del Mar. I can’t thank the team enough. I have no words. This will never feel normal. I am so grateful. Thank you to my family and friends for coming to support me as well. We didn’t get pictures because we had wayyyy too much fun,” Ayesha wrote on Instagram.
But while photos weren’t snapped, some video was recorded.
During the opening, Ayesha busted out a slow-paced Milly Rock dance created by rapper 2 Milly that had onlookers cheering her on.
The clip quickly went viral and the celebrity chef ended up becoming a trending topic on Twitter Wednesday.
Many people had unkind remarks for her. They even took digs at her feelings about the attention her Golden State Warriors guard husband gets from women compared to the attention she gets from men.
“As sturdy as a baby giraffe 🥴”
“This is exactly why men don’t ask for her number 🤣🤣🤣”
“Y’all better compliment her before she start crying 🤣🤣🤣🤣😭”
“Ayesha curry dances like exactly what she is…a lightskin shordy from Markham😭”
“This just made me uncomfortable”
But while trolls disliked the dancing moment, Steph nodded along as his wife busted a move. He kept the same energy Wednesday evening when he took to his Instagram Story to defend Ayesha against naysayers.
“Slow news day today, I see, huh?” he asks those watching. “Just make sure y’all send me the video of you dancing at your own restaurant opening. And we gon’ keep Milly Rocking until that happens.”
He proceeded to do his own rendition of the Milly Rock and his wife playfully responded, “I hate you.”
This is just the latest time the GSW player has raced to defend his bride.
After Ayesha got backlash for admitting on “Red Table Talk” that she has “a little bit of an insecurity” over Curry’s groupies, he took to Instagram in May to pat the star on the back for her openness.
“Proud of you for being authentic and putting yourself out there not being afraid of potential bulls#*# and nonsense that could and did come at you,” he said. “Way more positive than negative with all of this. Keep being you. I love you.”
