Ayesha Curry was on the receiving end of a lot of blowbacks and mocking jokes after admitting she was bothered that no other men had come on to her during her 10-year marriage to NBA superstar Steph Curry.

In case you missed it, Ayesha Curry was a guest on the wildly popular Facebook Watch show “Red Table Talk,” and during her confessions of insecurity to host Jada Pinkett Smith, Curry voiced her irritation that other men were not paying her any attention.

Ayesha Curry’s mother, Sonya, and Pinkett Smith tried to reassure her. And Pinkett Smith even said she harbored similar sentiments and resentments earlier in her marriage to Will Smith.

After the episode aired, the show and Curry’s comments quickly went viral, and the mocking jokes and biting criticisms of Curry quickly rained down on social media like a blizzard:

After laying low for a day and digesting the jokes aimed at her, Ayesha Curry quickly rebounded and dusted her shoulders off with a subtle clap back at her critics. Under the IG photo below, she had this to say to her legion of critics:

“This is me throwing a pair of spanx in a Marie Kondo-esque bin. “Does it spark joy?” I have never been one to cage my feelings and emotions to any capacity. I am human. It brings me pure joy to speak my mind, be vulnerable at times and to know myself inside and out. Seeing as how it’s mental health awareness month I really want to take the time to encourage everyone to speak their truth regardless of perception, fitting into a mold or offending someone, because it’s YOUR truth. And that’s okay! If what I’m not afraid to say out loud about being a 30yr mama of 3 helps another woman like me feel like they’re not the alone and not the only one with an insecurity (because we ALL have them, don’t play) then that makes all of this hoopla worth it. If you get a chance to watch the actual RTT and not the headlines and rumors please do! There is so much more depth to the talk and our family is grateful to @jadapinkettsmith for giving us the opportunity to bond together. As women let’s continue to uplift, empower and not suppress and compress our feelings and thoughts, as fleeting as some of them may be 😏. Love to you all! Go FIND YOUR JOY and SPEAK YOUR TRUTH unapologetically. 🙏🏽(that’s all-Miranda voice).”
