The woman who cut across Beyoncé in that viral clip has revealed that she’s been getting death threats since the video started circulating online.
The woman in question is Nicole Curran, the wife of Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob.
Speaking to ESPN reporter Ramona Shelburne, Nicole said she was forced to deactivate her social media accounts due to the intense level of harassment she was facing.
Ramona tweeted: “Just spoke to Nicole Curran, the wife of Warriors owner Joe Lacob, about the ‘incident’ with Beyoncé last night. She was in tears.”

“Said she had been getting death threats on social media all night this morning she disabled her IG account just to make it stop.”
She went on to explain: “Curran says Jay Z asked for a vodka soda. She asked if he wanted lime with that. But it was loud in Oracle and she couldn’t hear, so she leaned over. That’s where the photos of Beyoncé looking askance at her come from.”
“Curran says she then went to go get them those drinks. ‘There was no hostility. I was trying to be a good hostess,’ she said. ‘I’ve never experienced cyber bullying like this. I can’t believe our players go through this. That kids go through this.'”
