The man who made lewd comments on CP24 regarding the wife of Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry claims he’s been on the receiving end of ‘death threats’ since going public.
Outside at Jurassic Park, he told reporter Kelly Linehan during a live television interview:
“I just wanted to let everyone know: Ayesha Curry, we’re going to f—- her in the p——.”

Tristan Warkentin told the Toronto Sun he was planning to try to apologize to Ayesha Curry.
Via Toronto Sun:
“I’m not in a position to defend myself in terms of what happened. I am sure you understand the influence of alcohol,” he said in an interview.
“What I did was disgraceful; it was an alcohol-influenced situation.”
Warkentin added: “To be honest I don’t even remember being there but I am responsible for my own actions at the end of the day” and “am not sitting here claiming victim.”
The Toronto Police have launched an investigation after Warkentin’s appearance Sunday on CP24.
Warkentin said he does not expect to be charged criminally, saying his lawyer told him his awful comment does not fall under the Criminal Code.
“Realistically, at the end of the day there is not going to be any trouble other than the backlash and the repercussions of my actions,” he concluded.
“There (are) no criminal charges that can be laid because of what happened. Does that make it any less wrong? Absolutely not.”
Fans can say the darndest things.
Especially while intoxicated on live TV.
