Beyonce's perceived reaction to Warriors owner's wife became a meme

Mom and dad recently sat courtside at the Golden State Warriors' game against the Toronto Raptors, where they were joined by Nicole Curran, wife of the Warriors' owner Joe Lacob, to the left of Bey *insert 'Irreplaceable' reference here*.

As we wrote, the singer's fans attacked Curran after a clip of her leaning over Bey to talk to husband JAY-Z, who was sitting next to the Formation singer at the game, circulated the interwebs. Curran told Shelburne that she had no idea the moment had caused controversy until she got home and realized she'd been getting online death threats.

Nicole's side of the story portrays complete innocence as she found the interaction completely harmless, and had even invited Bey and Jay to games many times, so on Wednesday, she offered them drinks, since they were her guests and all.

Meanwhile Beyonce's publicist Yvette Noel-Shure has responded on Instagram following the incident and urged the Beyhive to 'spread love'.

"I've never experienced cyberbullying like this", she tells ESPN, noting she had to disable her Instagram. I had to lean in to hear what he wanted. If somebody else, who's not as big, hugs Beyoncé, I don't know. - and JAY would have slapped me upside the head if I didn't, 'D*mn, n*gga, didn't you see B?

The woman isn't just some random fan, though. I can't believe our players go through this.

She was called a number of names, including "Becky with the good hair", referring Beyonce's "Sorry" a song about infidelity released in the wake of the couple's highly publicized marital issues. "That kids go through this", she said.
