We've all said things we've regretted, so let's just forgive Ayesha Curry

Ayesha and Steph Curry are having a rough start to the week, and the Twitter trolls aren't helping. After a rough loss in the NBA Finals, Curry tweeted some words of encouragement to her husband and the Golden State Warriors. They're not champions, but he's her husband — of course she's going to support him. Unfortunately, fans won't soon forget the harsh words she used earlier in the week when her husband was ejected from the second-to-last game.

In a now-deleted tweet, Curry blamed everyone but her husband for his actions in Game 6. "I’ve lost all respect sorry this is absolutely rigged for money," she wrote. "Or ratings [I’m] not sure which. I won’t be silent. Just saw it live sry." Sure, she got a little rash — but she's looking through wife-colored glasses.

After last night's loss, she shared her message of support, emphasizing that she "wasn't a sports fan at all growing up" but "at the end of the day [she] feels just like the little girl in Remember the Titans.. passionate and ready to #defendourground."

Those words may have been sweet, but fans still think she's feeling salty. Twitter commenters are getting pretty creative with this one, from photos of a crying LeBron James to a picture of Curry with some Morton Salt (get it?), to photoshopped T-shirts with the logo "Bye Ayesha."

Do we really have to say "Bye, Ayesha" just because she wasn't the perfect fan? Let's chalk this one up to bad sportsmanship and good wifely duties and end it there.
