Watch what you say on social media because it could cost you your job. One Cavaliers fan found out the hard way after firing off mean tweets about Steph Curry’s daughter Riley. And all the drama that ensued has us wondering if it’s the reason behind Steph appeared off his game last night. More inside…
You would think by now, folks would censor their commentary on social media being that once it’s out there, it’s out there for the world to see and there’s no turning back. Our family members, friends, co-workers, even our bosses are all “logged in” online to see everything we post on social media, so nowadays you just have to think twice before you start ranting and raving on a public platform.
Well, one Cleveland fan should have thought twice about his commentary before Game 3 of the NBA Finals yesterday. Steph’s sister Sydel Curry, an Elon University student in Elon, N.C, hopped on Twitter to express her excitement about traveling to Cleveland to watch her brother and the Warriors go head-to-head against LeBron James and the Cavaliers.
One Cavaliers fan named Moe Wahdan decided to issue a threat of sorts to Sydel and the Curry family all while disgustingly calling little 3-year-old Riley Curry out of her name. This human tweeted (and deleted):
Sydel brushed his comments off with a “blessed” tweet:
And this is when ish started going left. Several fans found out Moe’s employment and started tweeting the real estate company informing them of his mean tweets:
It didn’t take long for Moe’s employer The Holton-Wise Property Group to hop on Twitter and read their employee’s tweets. The real estate company said via Twitter they didn’t condone his comments and that he was terminated immediately!
Moe appeared to be unbothered about the termination, but we all know how folks like to front on social media. He responded:
During the game, Moe took the credit for the Warriors lost, claiming he was the one that got into Steph’s head:
Sydel then decided to address Moe directly, but it was ultimately a waste of her time. Peep their exchange below:
If you missed, the Cavaliers dominated the Warriors last night 120-90 making the series 2-1. It was a somewhat surprising blowout, even though the Cavs were at home, since the Warriors blew out the Cavs the first two games. According to the ratings, Game 3 of the NBA Finals was the third highest rated Game 3 ever on ABC.
Game 4 will tip off tomorrow (June 10th) at the Q Arena at 9pm EST on ABC.
