Christian Fashionista Promotes Modesty, Gets Major Hate on Twitter
Written by Julie Partin | December 8, 2015
Ayesha Curry, wife of NBA MVP and all-star Steph Curry, has gained a following over the last few years for her fashion, cooking and Christian values. Many consider the couple as role models for a healthy family that has stayed grounded in their faith throughout their rise to fame.
Recently, after reading through a Style Weekly, Ayesha tweeted the following:
Ayesha’s remarks were met with criticism from Twitter users who believed she was “slut-shaming” some women for how they dress, and being anti-feminist.
As Christian women, we know that dressing modestly is not only for yourself and for your spouse/future spouse, but also for God. Project Inspired has always been all about modest fashion, and we are proud of Ayesha for speaking out and going against the grain.
Steph stood up for his wife and spoke about the controversy to Warriors’ sideline reporter Rosalyn Gold-Onwude, who wrote, “He was surprised ppl took offense to it. He thought Twitter was for expressing opinions. Steph Curry said all Ayesha did was express her style preference. It was not a judgment.”
Even after Ayesha was bombarded with criticism, she remained true to her statement and beliefs.
What do you think, PI Girls? Do you agree with Ayesha? Has anything you’ve ever said or written on social media turned into a much bigger issue than you expected?
