Ayesha Curry had quite the comeback for an Instagram follower who left a sexist comment on one of her posts.
On Tuesday, Curry posted a video advertisement for Spotify on her Instagram account; the ad shows her curating different music playlists for her day, including a cooking playlist. Although anyone can, of course, enjoy time in the kitchen, there’s also a career reason Curry dedicates so much time to cooking. She’s both a cookbook author and founder of the International Smoke chain of restaurants.
“Stay in the kitchen,” one user commented on the post.
“Which one?” Curry fired back. “SF, Houston, Miami or San Diego?”
The cities are a reference to Curry’s four International Smoke locations. Her comment has almost 7,000 likes and hundreds of supportive responses.
“Don’t come for a Queen!” one follower commented. “Respect for the hustle,” added another.
Curry recently opened up about how hard it can be to live in the spotlight. In an interview for Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook talk show “Red Table Talk,” Ayesha recounted how much she hates dealing with the constant female attention her husband Stephen receives as a basketball star.
“Stephen is very nice by nature. And he’s very talkative … Obviously you know the devil is a liar the ladies will always be lurking, hoping for their moment and waiting. You need to be aware of that,” she said. “I honestly hate it… We had the conversation about it and he tries really, really hard if we’re going somewhere, he’s introduced me. I don’t like to have to introduce myself.”
After the interview was criticized by some online, Stephen came to the defense of his wife with an Instagram post.
“Proud of you for being authentic and putting yourself out there – not being afraid of potential bull s#*# and nonsense that could and did come at you,” he wrote. “Way more positive than negative with all of this. Keep being you. I love you.”
