Steph's father-in-law was mistaken for a renowned con artist.
Last night after Stephen Curry fouled out, and later ejected, his wife, Ayesha, took to twitter to complain about the officiating and the league as a whole. In a since deleted tweet, Mrs. Chef Curry said that the game was rigged for money, or ratings, but later said she was just tweeting out of frustration.
Obviously part of her frustration was due to the fact that LeBron had another epic performance while her husband was plagued by foul trouble throughout the game.
The other part of her frustration came when her father was profiled and almost arrested.
According to Marc Spears, Ayesha's father had his credentials thoroughly checked by NBA security and was nearly arrested after being mistaken for David Aminzadeh, a renowned con artist that has swindled his way into a number of major sporting events in the past.
“I was just kind of debriefed on what the security thought happened with some guy that poses with fake credentials and gets backstage at a lot of events, the NBA Finals and all that stuff,” Curry said. “They kind of profiled my father-in-law and thought he was him. They threatened to arrest him before they checked out his credentials. It’s kind of been an emotional and tough night all around."
"That was kind of a traumatic situation where her [Ayesha's] dad almost got arrested. So it was kind of a tough situation to deal with in a hostile environment. All in all, it's just a game. I hope that everybody is all right."
“When it comes to Twitter and all that, everybody says stuff where you get caught in the moment,” Curry said. “After a while, you kind of stand and calm down. Things might not be as you thought…I don’t fault her for showing some emotion on Twitter.”
tweeted in the heat of the moment because the call was uncalled for.— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) June 17, 2016
Police racial profiled my father and told him to remove credentials and tried to arrest him. It's been a long night for me. I apologize:— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) June 17, 2016
I'm okay that we lost... I just can't take people coming at my family for absolutely no reason. Something I don't understand or stand for.— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) June 17, 2016
