Ayesha Curry took some time to clap back at someone who called her a ‘hypocrite’ following her latest Instagram post.
For a feature on bodies in the latest issue of Curry’s magazine Sweet July, the chef and mom of three posed nude. The 31-year-old shared the picture to Instagram and wrote in the caption, “From our @sweetjuly BODY feature. So many natural wellness and skin remedies in this issue! @stephencurry30 got to pick the photo?. Shins and shoulders y’all, shins and shoulders.”
Celebrity friends and fans alike took to her comments to express their praise for Curry.
“Love this,” Lala Anthony said.
“Stunning,” Halle Bailey noted.
“Okaaaayyy boss lady,” one fan wrote.
“Love all of this,” a user said.
Though many commenters were in awe of Curry’s pictures, there were others that did not seem as impressed. One person questioned Curry’s faith writing, “I thought you and your husband was a Christian couple.”
“Very much so,” she responded.
Another user even brought up past comments Curry supposedly made, questioning: “Is this the same person that was telling women to cover up a few years ago?”
“Never did that,” she defended and agreed with another user who claimed that she is covered up in the photo.
The comment in question came from controversial tweets from Dec. 5 2015 where she wrote, “Everyone’s into barely wearing clothes these days huh? Not my style. I like to keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters.”
Curry went on to try to clarify her comments in another tweet writing, “Regardless of if you like my “style of clothes” or not (which I don’t care) please do not tear women down and degrade them… Not cool peeps.”
Curry has been open about body image in the past. As she told Working Mother in 2019, she got plastic surgery after breastfeeding her second-born child.
“I didn’t realize at the time, but after having Ryan, I was battling a bit of postpartum that lingered for a while. It came in the form of me being depressed about my body,” she said. “So I made a rash decision. The intention was just to have them lifted, but I came out with these bigger boobs I didn’t want. I got the most botched boob job on the face of the planet. They’re worse now than they were before. I would never do anything like that again, but I’m an advocate of if something makes you happy, who cares about the judgment?”
The thing about the internet is that there’s always going to be someone unhappy with your decisions. You just have to do what works for you — and Ayesha is clearly doing what works for her.
