There's a long history of Beyoncé at basketball games, but this time she sat court side during Game 3 of the NBA Finals, cheering on the Golden State Warriors instead of the Raptors. (She's a Houston Rockets fan at heart, obviously, but we all have to make compromises at some point. ) With Jay-Z by her side, the cameras captured her every move during the game.
It turns out, the woman who Beyoncé may or may not have shoulder-checked is named Nicole Curran (who happens to be the wife of Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacobs, who is sitting next to her), and she has her own response to the Beyhive coming for her: "We should all help an support each other," she wrote on an Instagram photo of herself helping Beyoncé with her hair.
Now, whether or not the superstar consciously pushed this woman is up for debate, but the Internet (especially Twitter users) seems to think the move was intentional, and everyone online is having a field day with turning this court side shoulder bump into the new meme du jour.
The internet can't handle Beyoncé's courtside shade. https://t.co/psQKqLGEpP— W magazine (@wmag) June 6, 2019
