A Cleveland Cavaliers fan apparently trying to get under the skin of the NBA's MVP instead ended up losing his job. The 21-year-old sister of Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors tweeted Wednesday morning that Curry's whole family was heading to Cleveland to watch him play in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, per the San Francisco Chronicle. That's when Moe Wahdan got, well, vulgar. "You and your family get the f--- out of Cleveland," he wrote, per Complex. He went on to call Curry's 3-year-old daughter a slur, and while the tweet is partially blacked out, sites are using the shortcut of "f----t a--" to describe it.

A bitter exchange followed, shared by a Warriors fan site, and it didn't take long for users to identify Wahdan and his employer. A user quickly tagged the Holton-Wise Property Group in a tweet about Wahdan's tweet, and the company announced an hour later that he'd been fired. "We do not condone or tolerate hate speech of any kind, let alone hate speech that is directed towards a child," it said. Wahdan, at least, thinks he got the last laugh. "I'll be in another real estate office by tomorrow," he tweeted, adding, "I lost my job but they lost the game. Who really lost here?" (Read more NBA stories.)
