Tweets are getting people in trouble left and right these days. Many times the person brings the attention themselves.
Before Game 3 of the NBA Finals, Steph Curry's sister Sydel tweeted about the trip to Cleveland. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Evidently a Cavaliers fan, Moe Wahdan, wasn't too happy about the Curry family being in Cleveland and promptly responded.
Sydel responded with class, addressing the Curry family would be leaving after Game 4.
We'll be gone Friday! Bless up https://t.co/MoYnutNj7c— Sydel Curry (@sydelcurry) June 8, 2016
From there came a firestorm of tweets at Wahdan for attacking the Curry family, especially Steph's daughter Riley. It ended with the employer stepping in and terminating the twitter troll.

James Wise, the owner of The Holton-Wise Property Group where Wahdan was working, issued a statement on the incident via Complex.
"Shortly after Moe made his inappropriate comments Twitter members started tagging The Holton-Wise Property Group twitter account. At about the same time this was happening, I was notified via email from multiple people who were offended by his actions. I immediately what was going on... At Holton-Wise, we expect our employees to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times. The behavior demonstrated by Moe towards the Curry family, as well as the inappropriate content I discovered while investigating what was happening with the Curry family tweets led me to terminate him immediately. We do not condone harassment or hate speech of any kind."
Wahdan and Sydel had a quick back and forth after that but, as many twitter spats end, she eventually blocked him.
