Last night, Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving sunk a shot that broke a
51-year-old "curse" on the Ohio team and helped propel them to the NBA finals -- and was crowned a hero across several social media. And while Irving obviously deserved the outpouring of accolades, there was a dark side to all the well-earned praise -- namely the fact that his ex, r&b singer Kehlani, was so inundated with harassment from Irving supporters that she was forced to delete her Instagram after his big win. This is the second time she's had to leave social media after being spammed by Irving's fans and it an outcome that reeks of misogyny and bullshit "gold digger" tropes.

Thankfully, she's just reactivated and responded to the (incessant) trolls in the most gracious way possible -- by gramming a photo of Irving that referenced the loss of the Golden State Warriors (her home team) and writing "Tough night for the city, but congratulations the most humble person I've ever met! @kyrieirving I love u! ❤️🔥❤️."
Message to the haters -- this is when you guys should start backing off.
