May 25 (UPI) -- Ayesha Curry, the wife of Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, says that a Houston Rockets fan bumped her in her pregnant belly after Game 5 of the Western Conference finals.

Curry took to Twitter Friday to respond after a Rockets fan posted a video of an interaction with her after Thursday's game at the Toyota Center in Houston.

"We gonna beat y'all at home," the fan said as he walked toward Curry. "It's Houston time."

Curry's party and the fan then went their separate ways after a brief exchange, which included Curry taking the man's cigarette. The Twitter user posted a video on Friday. Curry responded to the post two hours later.

"The fact that you have the audacity to post this after this man bumped me in my eight-month pregnant belly asking and I quote 'doesn't losing feel like getting punched in the gut?' And continued to follow me and taunt me with his camera is beyond me ... but 'This is America' right," she tweeted.

Another user then called Houston fans "disgusting," but Curry came to their defense.

"No, no they're not," she wrote. "The fans were wonderful in the arena actually. It's just this man and a few others."

Curry sent two more tweets about the alleged incident, before moving on.

"I don't have time for this anymore today y'all," she added. "It is what it is. I know people see what they see and believe what they choose to believe. I'm done defending myself against weird grown creeps for the day. Praying people like this get help and peace of mind."

"I thought it was an accident at first because it was crowded and then he made that gut comment and continued to follow me. I should've got him in the face instead of saving his life by removing the cigarette he was swinging around in my face. Wish there was full footage."

Stephen and Ayesha announced that they were expecting their third child in February. They currently have two daughters.
