    Ayesha Curry Has Sparked A Debate About How Women Dress

    "Everyone's into barely wearing clothes these days, huh? Not my style. I like to keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters."

    Stephen Curry plays for the Golden State Warriors and in 2015 earned the NBA's Most Valuable Player Award.

    On Saturday night, Ayesha sent out a few tweets about her personal style preference, which soon started an online debate.

    Everyone's into barely wearing clothes these days huh? Not my style. I like to keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Just looking at the latest fashion trends. I'll take classy over trendy any day of the week. #saturdaynightinsight

    She made it clear that she wasn't singling anyone out, but had just been reading a style magazine.

    πŸ˜‚ and all I'm doing is sitting here reading a style weekly 😎😎😎. You guys definitely entertain me that's for sure.

    People soon started replying to Curry directly with past photographs of her that seemed to contradict her statements.

    Sisi do you call this being covered up? @ayeshacurry

    Some criticized Curry for "tearing women down" by policing the type of fashion she deemed acceptable.

    @ayeshacurry youre tearing women down by saying that certain types of dress makes them not 'classy'

    But some of the criticism was fairly lighthearted:

    But there were also a lot of people who supported what she had to say:

    So y'all hate Kardashians for always being unclothed, but Ayesha Curry wants to be covered up & y'all still hating?

    This woman called her a role model.

    @ayeshacurry This is how woman should be! Keep being a good role model Ayesha..classy is beautiful

    Some said they could "see nothing wrong" with her views.

    I see nothing wrong with what Ayesha curry said....*stares at the offended tho*

    Even supermodel Chrissy Teigen weighed in.

    @ayeshacurry you got people writing articles on a Sunday πŸ˜‚

    Though, some have used Curry's tweets in order to shame women who prefer to dress in a revealing manner.

    Birds on the web have been brain washed by Cardi B and Amber Rose for so long they can't understand Ayesha curry

    I would put money on the girls who are upset at what was said by Ayesha Curry also idolize these women

    The hoes that are mad at Ayesha Curry are the same ones that make their kids record them twerking πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Amber Rose got you females confused what a respectable woman is. Ayesha Curry is goals.

    If Ayesha curry saying she personally covers up really caused controversy, that's how you know this generation of women is really some hoesπŸ˜‚

    Curry urged her supporters not to "tear women down" or "degrade" them.

    Regardless of if you like my "style of clothes" or not (which I don't care) please do not tear women down and degrade them... Not cool peeps
