Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is widely regarded as one of the most beloved athletes in all of sports.
Few have ever had a bad word to say about the future Hall of Famer.
This week that changed.
In a now-viral social media post, a man seemingly calls Curry out for his encounter with the man’s 8-year-old son.

Make of that what you will.
NBA fans tend to have strong opinions about things, so they immediately took to social media to respond.

Well he took his shoes off and gave them to one kid. He can’t possibly stop and say hello and sign every autograph at every game 😒. If he did, he’d never have time to play. He greets and signs what he can, when he can… just like any other celebrity.

This has been a busy week for Curry. Between the video of what he said to Dillon Brooks before embarrassing him going viral and his wild boat party photos with Ayesha, the man has been a mainstay in the news cycle
This is just the latest example of that.

Will Curry opt to address this awkward encounter with the 8-year-old at some point in the coming days? Time will tell.
