A viral video of Beyoncé and Jay-Z sitting courtside at Wednesday’s showdown between the Golden State Warriors as well as the Toronto Raptors captured everyone’s attention after Beyoncé appeared less than thrilled with someone leaning over her.

Back in footage posted to Twitter by ESPN, Beyoncé appeared annoyed as Curran chatted together with her with Jay.
Beyoncé do not like that woman along with her at all,” one fan wrote on Twitter, while yet another added:”How dare her talk across Beyoncé.”
The Beyhive unleashed their anger, swarming Curran’s Instagram with bee emojis in the comments to the stage where Curran needed to deactivate her accounts. She told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne that she disabled her Instagram because she had been getting”death threats on social networking.”
Curran told Shelburne that she was requesting for the couple’s beverage order through the viral video and only leaned over Beyoncé since it was hard to hear at Oakland’s Oracle Arena.
You may ask: Who is the woman who seemed to get a (literal) cold shoulder from Beyonce? Her name is Nicole Curran, the wife of the Golden State Warriors majority owner Joseph Lacob. (Photo: Ezra Shaw, Getty Images)

If you browse Curran’s lips in the movie, it seems as though she is asking,”What would you desire?” Jay’s lips “Vodka… vodka soda” Curran appears to ask,”Want lime?”
“There was no hostility. I was attempting to be a good hostess,” Curran said. “I’ve never experienced cyber bullying like this. I can’t believe our players move through this.
Beyoncé still appeared to have a fantastic time throughout the Raptors win over the Warriors, sharing pictures and even the infamous video on her own Instagram account.
But, Queen Bey cropped Curran from the footage. Ouch.
