*Insulting Steph and Ayesha Curry on social media has become somewhat of a sport in the Twitterverse, and comes with the territory of being a celebrity. But dragging their 3-year-old daughter, you would think, would be beneath even the nastiest of trolls.
Sadly it’s not.
“You suck @rileycurry,” wrote a Twitter user called Matt Labatt. Another, Jay Rock, tweeted, “@rileycurry who’s your real daddy????”

Thankfully, Riley never saw these because, a) she’s three and not on Twitter; and b) @rileycurry is the Twitter handle of a 29-year-old man living in Nashville.
According to his response today, it seems the insults directed at little Riley Curry have been going on for a while.
“People tweet horrible things at me thinking I am @StephenCurry30 daughter. I am a 29 yr old man. Social media can be so awful.,” he tweeted.

They troll his Instagram as well, believing they are teasing the 3-year-old.
“It’s been stuff like, ‘You should tell your parents to kill themselves,'” he told the Tennessean.
