After the Cavaliers defeated the Warriors in the NBA Finals on June 19, an Ohio-based company had a run on ‘Bye Ayesha’ shirts (an OBVIOUS jab at Warriors player Steph Curry’s wife, Ayesha Curry). Check out the Meme that has the internet buzzing.
Warriors player Steph Curry, 28, had a lot to be depressed about when his team lost to the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals on June 19. But his wife Ayesha Curry, 27, was clearly the one to feel for that night, seeing as the internet started mocking her mercilessly. Ouch, people can be so mean! Enough so that a company in Ohio was able to sell over 1,000 “Bye Ayesha” shirts in just one night. HollywoodLife.com has the scoop on how the hilarious new meme has taken off!
As HollwoodLife.com previously reported, Steph almost cut off his own Wi-Fi after the Warriors star’s wife had a little Twitter outburst. She SLAMMED officials for what she thought were bad calls against the Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against Cleveland Cavaliers on June 16. “I’ve lost all respect sorry this is absolutely rigged for money,” she tweeted after Steph was ejected from the game in the fourth quarter. “Or ratings in not sure which. I won’t be silent. Just saw it live sry.”
It was after THAT that Lamp Apparel owner, Brandon Lamp, came up with the shirt that sold like crazy after Game 7 on June 19, he told TMZ. “It came out of nowhere and we whipped them up in 30 minutes,” Lamp said. “Once Cleveland won, it went crazy. The orders have been non-stop.”

The new meme is an ode to the famous “Bye Felicia” diss from the movie “Friday,” basically meaning you couldn’t care less if someone leaves. Poor Ayesha. And there are some HYSTERICAL ways people have taken to using #ByeAyesha.

Of COURSE this is not the only hashtag running around the Twitterverse attacking Ayesha today. A lot of other memes criticize Ayesha for keeping so quiet on social media while the Cavs were dominating her man on the court. But Ayesha found a way to stay positive following her hubby’s defeat.
“Proud of our men! #DUBNATION #WARRIORS,” Ayesha tweeted after the game. “That was an an insane season. Can’t deny it. Proud proud proud. Heart. Fight and passion. Everything according to his plan. always Glory to God!!!!!!!!!” You tell ’em Ayesha!
HollywoodLifers, would you buy a “Bye Ayesha” shirt?
