Jenkins spotted Curry on the New England Patriots sideline wearing red, and identified him as a fan of the opponent.
"See, I knew I didn't like Steph Curry," he said to a teammate. "That's your boy, Steph Curry. Front-runner."
Curry saw the clip and reached out to Jenkins to let him know he was repping not the Patriots, but the Minnehaha Redhawks. Apparently, Curry is tight with someone with ties to the Minneapolis-based school.
Hey @MalcolmJenkins, they should have given you some glasses with that 🎤. I rep the @RedhawksAD. But appreciate the S/O and congrats on the ring bro! Philly looks crazy today! Tell @TorreySmithWR I said what up too

Jenkins offered a mea culpa in return.

Thus marking one of the few times a Twitter interaction de-escalated a situation.
