Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was vocal against the US President Donald Trump during his protest last week.
While protesting with fellow Bay Area residents, Curry was shouting “Donald Trump has got to go” as per a video that has been circulating on social media.
This is not the first time that Curry has spoken against Trump. Most famously, Curry rejected an opportunity to visit the White House during Trump’s tenure to celebrate the Warriors’ second consecutive title.
“We don’t stand for basically what our President has – the things that he’s said and the things that he hasn’t said in the right times, that we won’t stand for it,” Curry said in 2017 explaining why he would not visit the White House. “And by acting and not going, hopefully, that will inspire some change when it comes to what we tolerate in this country and what is accepted and what we turn a blind eye to. It’s not just the act of not going there. There are things you have to do on the back end to actually push that message into motion.”
Curry has been one of the big names to have come out against racial discrimination. There have been nationwide protests since the death of George Floyd. Among the big names in the NBA who have raised their voice include LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Karl-Anthony Towns.
Recently, Curry and his wife, through their foundation, announced their contribution to preparing meals for local residents teaming up with restaurants in Oakland.
Not only Curry but even his coach Steve Kerr seems to be against Donald Trump. Kerr has tweeted a lot against Trump in recent times. On Sunday, Kerr laughed out at a CNN article on Twitter with a headline: “White House is considering a Trump speech to the nation on race and unity.”
“HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!White House is considering a Trump speech to the nation on race and unity,” Kerr tweeted.
Kerr and Warriors, having been part of the last five NBA finals, have had a dismal 2019/20 season. They will not be a part of the season that is set to resume with 22 teams.
