Athena was the one that cursed Medusa. She caught Medusa, then a beautiful sea nymph, meeting with Poseidon in one of her temples.

Medusa was not cursed by Aphrodite. She was cursed by Athena. Medusa, in Ovid's telling of the tale, was a beautiful young woman, possibly a priestess of Athena. Poseidon was so enraptured by her beauty that he pursued her and attempted to bed her. When Medusa refused, as Athena was a virgin goddess and expected her followers to be as well, Poseidon raped her on the floor of Athena's temple. As a result of the rape, Medusa became pregnant. Being the notorious misogynists that they are, the Greeks felt being raped was a punishable offense, and as such Athena cursed Medusa and exiled her to live with the other Gorgons.
Athena turned Medusa into a monster with snakes for hair. Whenever someone looked at Medusa after she was cursed, they would be turned to stone. Athena did this to Medusa because Medusa was one of Poseidon's lovers and they one day met in Athena's temple.

Medusa is a female character from the Greek mythology. It is said to turn onlookers to stone. Medusa never had a husband. According to the Greek Myth, she was a beautiful maiden once and served as priestess to the goodness of wisdom, Athena. Athena turned her into a Monster, when she learned of her affair with the god of the Sea, Poesidon. Athena cursed her (not cursed her out) meaning she cast a spell on Medusa. Yup Medusa was cursed into an ugly woman but before she was considered hot.
Medusa was said to be beautiful before she was cursed by Athena. Afterward, she had snakes as hair and was portrayed as a hideous monster.
Athena hates Medusa because Poseidon took her to Athena's worship place. Athena did not like that so Athena cursed Medusa so that no man could ever look at her again. Medusa was infuriated so she took Poseidon into the worship place and did some... stuff. Athena pledged never to do that so, Athena was pretty pissed off.
