One Cleveland Cavaliers fan decided to trash talk Stephen Curry's sister on Twitter Wednesday, and his explicit messages ended up costing the fan his job.

The interaction began when @SoftCaramelKiss quoted a tweet from Sydel Curry and wrote an offensive message directed, in part, at Stephen Curry's daughter Riley. The tweet has since been deleted.

"You and your whole family get the [expletive] out of Cleveland and take Riley's [expletive] with you."

Warriors fans saw the tweet and messaged the fan's employer, The Holton-Wise Property Group, which responded by promptly terminating him.

Sydel Curry defended her family in a series of tweets to the fan, and eventually blocked him on Twitter. Holton-Wise issued an apology to the Curry family on Thursday.
