Nicole Curran, the wife of Golden State Warriors majority owner Joe Lacob, was in tears and had to disable her Instagram account after Beyoncé fans started sending her death threats for having a conversation with Jay-Z.
Beyonce’s less-than-enthusiastic-looking reaction to her husband’s conversation with Curran during the Warriors-Raptors game went viral Wednesday (05.06.19) with Beyonce fans popularly known as Beyhive on Twitter writing posts like “Beyoncé doesn’t like that girl beside her at all” and “How dare her talk across Beyoncé.”
According to Fox News, Curran said she didn’t even realize her chat was an issue until she checked social media where she said she’d been getting death threats “all night.”
She added that she was simply offering the couple drinks and was only leaning toward Jay-Z because the arena was loud. “There was no hostility. I was trying to be a good hostess,” she added. “I’ve never experienced cyberbullying like this. I can’t believe our players go through this. That kids go through this.”
She insists there is no bad blood between her and Queen B. “We should all help and support each other,” she wrote on Instagram.
Early this year, the Beyhive came for ‘Power’ actor Omari Hardwick after he kissed the ‘Halo’ singer not once but twice on the cheek at the 2019 NAACP Image Awards. Many fans thought the actor acted inappropriately and they went ahead to target Omari on his Instagram page by unleashing a swarm of bee emoji and various memes.
