On June 16, she wrote a tweet directed at the NBA: "I've lost all respect. Sorry this is absolutely rigged for money. Or ratings...not sure which. I won't be silent. Just saw it live. [Sorry.]"

Curry tells People magazine she regrets the ways she voiced how hurt she was and didn't mean to offend anyone. She says what she wrote isn't what she thinks about what her husband does for a living.

Stephen Curry tells the magazine he knows where his wife was coming from and adds that he advised her to ignore what people say, because "you're not going to win any battles on Twitter."

Ayesha Curry is a popular social media personality with 3.7 million followers on Instagram and 637,000 on Twitter.
