Stephen Curry's wife, Ayesha Curry trended on Twitter.com over the weekend when she unveiled her newly reconstructed face and body in pictures on Instagram.com.

The mother-of-3 was heavily criticized for posing in a bikini in photos taken by her NBA superstar husband.

Sporting News took issue with Ayesha's sudden change in attitude.

Followers called her a hypocrite for "slut-shaming" women who wear skimpy clothes for the 'Gram.

"Everyone's into barely wearing clothes these days huh? Not my style. I like keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters."

Fans accused Ayesha, 31, of trying to achieve the surgically altered Kardashian look.

After the backlash to her bikini photos, Ayesha took to Instagram to defend her new look in a video.

She told her followers she's "down 35 pounds" and "very happy to be me."

She added:

"I spent my entire 20s having babies, nursing Babies. Now it's my turn to nurse myself. I'm Jamaican, I'm strong, I'm fast and I'm resilient... Negativity only makes a mom go harder. Word to the wise."

Fan reaction to the photos were mixed. Some congratulated her, while others criticized Ayesha for following the crowd and undergoing surgery to compete with the Kardashians.

Sporting News took issue with Ayesha's sudden change in attitude.

"In 2015, Ayesha Curry tweeted some thoughts that sent Twitter into a frenzy. She commented on how 'everyone's into barely wearing clothes these days.'

Some people on Twitter felt as if Ayesha Curry's 2015 comments were hypocritical of her wearing posting a photo of herself wearing a two-piece swimsuit. Essentially, her photo sparked the debate her 2015 tweets all over again."

Chuck Creekmur Pens Open Letter to Nicki Minaj

In an interview, she said:

"I went so far to the other side that there's only one place to go from there. You can either continue doing costumes or you can just say, 'Hey guess what? This will shock them even more. Doing nothing will shock them even more.'"
