Cavs fan loses his job over offensive tweets to Stephen Curry’s family

One Cleveland Cavaliers fan decided to trash talk Stephen Curry’s sister on Twitter Wednesday, and his explicit messages ended up costing the fan his job. 

The interaction began when @SoftCaramelKiss quoted a tweet from Sydel Curry and wrote an offensive message directed, in part, at Stephen Curry’s daughter Riley. The tweet has since been deleted.

Warriors fans saw the tweet and messaged the fan’s employer, The Holton-Wise Property Group, which responded by promptly terminating him.

Sydel Curry defended her family in a series of tweets to the fan, and eventually blocked him on Twitter. Holton-Wise issued an apology to the Curry family on Thursday.
