It’s been a rough 24 hours for the Golden State Warriors organization.

A franchise that’s used to having everything go right, right now it must feel like everything is going wrong.

Without Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Kevon Looney due to injury on Wednesday, the Warriors lost Game 3 of the NBA Finals to the Toronto Raptors. To make matters worse for the back-to-back champs, part-owner Mark Stevens was ejected from the game for shoving Raptors star Kyle Lowry.

What more could go wrong?

Well, Nicole Curran, wife of Warriors majority owner Joe Lacob, was the target of an internet firestorm Wednesday night.

Curran, it appears, had the audacity to speak over Beyonce, who she was seated next to courtside. She was talking to Jay-Z, the world’s first billionaire rapper, and Beyonce’s husband.

Beyonce looked away, causing the internet to read into it way too much.

Was she mad? Annoyed?

Did she even care at all?

Does it matter when we’re dealing with the Queen B?

Curran posted this photo to Instagram, not knowing what kind of reaction she would get from fanatical Beyonce fans.

This story goes from funny to unnerving pretty fast, as Curran received death threats before disabling her Instagram account, according to a report from ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.

Curran was apparently just asking the couple what they’d like to drink.

Beyonce asked for water, while Jay-Z chose a vodka soda. Curran wanted to know if he wanted a lime with his drink, but it was hard to hear in the arena, so she leaned in.

“There was no hostility. I was trying to be a good hostess,” Curran told ESPN. “I’ve never experienced cyber bullying like this. I can’t believe our players go through this. That kids go through this.”
