The wife of Golden State Warriors team owner Joe Lacob ,Nicole Curran, said that she received death threats on social media that prompted her to delete her Instagram account following what some would consider a not-so-happy reaction from Beyoncé to her speaking with Jay-Z.
There is a short clip that has made the rounds showing Jay-Z and Beyoncé sitting courtside at Game 3 of the NBA Finals Wednesday night. The couple is smiling and waving in the clip and the smile on Beyoncé’s face disappears when Curran leans over to speak to Jay-Z, as the the shot cuts back to the game.
According to Curran, she was asking the famous couple if they wanted drinks, as the Warriors had invited them to the game. In speaking to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, she said Jay-Z asked for a vodka soda, and she had to lean over because due to the loudness of the game, she asked him if he wanted a lime with it.
There was no hostility, Curran said to Shelburne, “I was trying to be a good hostess.
Curran also said: “ I’ve never experienced cyber bullying like this. I can’t believe our players go through this. That kids go through this.”
Apparently her fan[natics] were not pleased.
In an Instagram post , Beyonce’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schumer urges Beyoncé’s fans to not “spew hate.”
It was activity like this that spurred the aforementioned post from Schure:
If death threats were really made, then those persons who did it are degenerate sycophants who have nothing to contribute to society.
