Barry Laminack: Rockets fans troll Ayesha Curry on Yelp

As a lifelong Houstonian I know that there are two things most everyone in this city takes serious, BBQ and rain. That’s why I’m not at all surprised that Rockets fans have flooded yelp with 1 star reviews trolling (and trashing) International Smoke, a BBQ restaurant owned by Ayesha Curry, wife to Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry.

The restaurant hasn’t even opened yet and it’s already being trashed for various reasons, almost none of which have anything to do with the food, and just about everything to do with the fact the people hate Golden State, and KD, and Steph Curry, and Draymond Green, and....

You’ll notice above I said “people” and not HOUSTONIANS. That’s because there are even 1 star troll reviews from people that don’t even live here.

Like this one from a Jazz fan in Nevada:


That’s right, even the hatred between Jazz and Rockets fans takes a back seat to everyone hating the Warriors.

Here are some more hilarious 1 star reviews

This one was very creative:


They didn’t even try to fake it here:

Here’s a Lebron fan with a (very predictable) “Curry Chicken” joke - also NOT a Rockets fan:


They didn’t even try here:


Even Durant got hit:



This guy has a point:


This one was my favorite:


And here is the one that started all of this:

To be fair, it’s not like the restaurant Curry owns in San Francisco is doing much better. At the time of this writing it had 3.5 stars.

And if you’re wondering, if it’s not pricey, yes I’ll probably try the food when it gets here.
