I didn't notice that in the article
Literally the first words of the article:
People got jokes.
Everyone, it seems like.
Jokes for days.
When the topic is Eddy Curry, the jokes just come easy. It’s been that way for more than a decade. And even after all these years that I’ve been out of the league, when my name comes up online or on social media or whatever, somehow a bunch of people … still got jokes.
Ok, but where does it say "you can't criticize anything I've ever done."
Here's some more excerpts from the article:As a father — as a man — you’re responsible for the children you bring into this world, no matter what the situation is. You need to be accountable and look out for those little ones. I needed to do that. I needed to protect my daughter.
And I didn’t.
In so many ways.
I failed her.
And the what-ifs still haunt me to this day.Now, when you Google my name, you get links to articles with titles like “Top 10 Athletes Who Are Rumored To Be Gay” and “Which Athletes Have the Gay Rumor Mill Buzzing.”
Hahahah fat-ass, broke-ass, GAY-ASS Eddy Curry. LOLOLOL.
People will always have jokes.
That’s just how it goes. Especially when you don’t end up being what everyone thought you would be.With me, when I was going through my most painful **** — the most difficult times in my entire life, stuff that was just unimaginably rough for me — people have always been right there, ready to step up to make fun of it.
It used to really bug me.
But now … you know what? Now, in some ways, I almost view it as a blessing. Seeing that nastiness take place, again and again, has enabled me to realize that maybe even just having one person who isn’t looking to tear you down and laugh at your failures and make you feel less than human … maybe that can actually be enough to get you through.
And for me that person, without a doubt, is my wife, Patrice.And on those days when I for some reason get sucked into the comments section online and end up seeing some of the stuff people still say about me all these years later, all I have to do is look across the room at my children, or at Patrice, and I instantly realize the difference between what’s not important….
And what is.
You can criticize him all you want if that your prerogative. The article doesn't scream out that people aren't allowed to criticize him.
Imagine looking for the literal words and not understanding inference.
Why doesn't he just tell his story? He brings up the joke stuff for a reason. He's trying to shame people for it.
