The Raptors may have run away with Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Warriors on Wednesday night, but Toronto’s 123-109 victory over Golden State is not what Twitter’s talking about.
Enjoying a courtside date night at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z sat beside the Warriors’ majority owner, Joseph S. Lacob, and wife Nicole Curran for the game. While Curran chatted with Jay as Beyoncé sat in the middle, a camera captured Bey’s unamused face, which has become the meme of the moment on social media.
“Beyonce is annoyed by this woman hov gon’ hear about it on the jet,” Radio One editor Brandon Caldwell tweeted. “Beyonce definitely didn’t think that tonight of all nights that she’d have to hit a woman with a shoulder nudge in rare burberry but here we are.”
“I would leave the earth if Beyonce looked this ready to smack me,” Kara Brown, co-host of the “Keep It” podcast, wrote.
“IMAGINE, speaking and leaning over Beyoncé,” another lamented.
On Thursday, Curran took to social media, where she shared a screenshot from Wednesday’s courtside festivities, writing, “We should all help and support each other.” It appears her Instagram comments have also been disabled.
Beyoncé, 37, also shared a few images from the game, none of which included Curran.
This isn’t the first time Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s NBA nights have gone viral. Back in 2014, the songstress was photographed speaking with a long-haired Jake Gyllenhaal as Jay, 49, sat between the two.
