Ayesha Curry is making heads turn with her latest look. The Canadian-American actress and cookbook author who is known for her TV show ‘Ayesha's Homemade’ recently shared a photo with her husband and NBA star Stephen Curry — popularly known as "Steph" — and captioned it: "Mom goes blonde (temporarily)." In the Instagram boomerang, she sported blonde hair and her nose seemed to be slightly different from her normal avatar.

Her snap soon went viral and collected over 1.3 million likes on the photo-sharing platform. The couple who exchanged vows in 2011 in the same church where they met nine years before has three children together. Steph paid homage to his wife when he got his first unanimous MVP award. "None of this is possible without you," he said. "You've given me the opportunity to go out here and work as hard as I do, spend the hours I need to do at the gym, during practice, in games, on the road – all the while holding down the house and doing the little things that keep our family going."

However, the picture sent shock waves on Instagram. Confused and a little taken aback, fans couldn't stop wondering if she had dyed her hair blonde and said the color worked wonders for her. "Also... the nose too. Contour or nose job? That’s why you look so different to us. The hair & the nose," one Instagram fan commented and another said, "This color look dope on you sis so pretty." A third said, "Beautiful no matter what! Blonde tho is working for you."

On Twitter, however, the photo sparked much fuss and furor. Several fans slammed her for "trying to look White" and a few joked how the light-skinned beauty was "being slandered for looking light-skinned." One Internet user said, "I seriously thought Ayesha Curry was a white woman in this photo. It must have been the filter." Another posted, "Ayesha Curry is a Black woman looking like a White woman trying her damnedest to look like a light skin Black woman." A third said, "Ayesha Curry, who is light-skinned, is being slandered for looking light-skinned and it is hilarious."



 



 



 

Many even wondered if Steph was with another woman. "I thought Steph Curry was with a white woman in Ayesha’s latest post," one tweet read and another said, "Thought this was a white woman for a second. Curry cheating on Ayesha would destroy me." She later clarified, "It’s the fun wig for a switch up and extremely common IG filter we all use from time to time for me… I just… y’all be taking this stuff wayyy too serious," with laughing emojis on Twitter.



 



 



 

Many supporters then popped up on her feed to support her and slam the trolls. "Oh for God's sake, you looked gorgeous, as I tweeted not too long ago... Why are people so petty and pissy?" one wrote and another said, "Queen Ayesha stop giving these trolls your time and energy. You look GOOD." A third jumped in, "You look great in everything and with any hairstyle! Forget the haters and continue being your awesome, inspirational self, no need to explain yourself!"
