SB 10.74.36
yayatinaisam hi kulam
 saptam sadbhir bahis-krtam
vrtha-pana-ratam sasvat
 saparyam katham arhati

Translation: 
Yayati cursed the dynasty of these Yadavas, and ever since then they have been ostracized by honest men and addicted to liquor. How, then, does Krsna deserve to be worshiped?

Purport: 
Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti gives the inner meaning of the words of Sisupala to show how he continued unintentionally glorifying Lord Krsna and His Yadu dynasty: “Even though the Yadus were cursed by Yayati, they have been relieved [bahis-krtam] of this curse by great saints, and consequently they have been raised to a position of royal sovereignty by such persons as Kartavirya. Thus they have become absorbed in pana, protecting the earth. Considering all this, how does Krsna, the chief of the Yadus, deserve useless [vrtha] worship? Rather, He deserves opulent worship.”
