Raptors fan who made vulgar Ayesha Curry remark on live TV arrested


A Toronto Raptors fan was arrested by police after he made a vulgar comment about Ayesha Curry on live television, according to TMZ. 

It happened after the Warriors won Game 2 in Toronto on Sunday, June 2. 

A reporter from Canadian news agency CP24 was interviewing fans at the end of the game when 28-year-old Tristan Warkentin appeared on camera. 

In response to a question about what it was like to be at Scotiabank Arena for the game, he said, “The vibe was unreal and I just want to let everyone know Ayesha Curry we’re gonna f**k her right in the p**sy.”

TMZ reports the Toronto Police Service says Warkentin was arrested for criminal mischief since he knew his comments would air on live television. 

Warkentin said he had been receiving death threats due to his comments. 

He told the Toronto Sun, “I’m not in a position to defend myself in terms of what happened. I am sure you understand the influence of alcohol.”

He added, “What I did was disgraceful; it was an alcohol-influenced situation … To be honest I don’t even remember being there but I am responsible for my own actions at the end of the day” and “am not sitting here claiming victim.”

He is scheduled to appear in court on July 11.
