Hip-Hop power couple, Beyoncé and Jay-Z attended the NBA Finals game 3 between the Warriors and Raptors while seated next to Warriors owner Joe Lacob and his wife Nicole Curran.
At one point during the game, cameras caught Curran talking to Jay. She had to lean past Beyoncé in order to communicate with the billionaire emcee. Bey’s facial expression and mannerisms appeared to show the superstar entertainer was annoyed by the interaction between her husband and the Warriors Community Foundation Board President.

That viral video was enough for Beyonce’s super fans — known as the Beyhive — to flood Nicole Curran’s Instagram page with bee emojis. The insect onslaught led to Curran disabling her IG account after receiving death threats.
Early yesterday morning, Curran returned to her account to upload an image of herself interacting with Beyoncé at the NBA Finals game in Oakland. The caption for the photo reads, “We should all help and support each other.”
Over the last several months, the BeyHive has stung other public figures for what was perceived as disrespect towards the “Formation” singer. Power actor Omari Hardwick was trolled for kissing Beyoncé on the face at the NAACP Image Awards, and R&B legend Dionne Warwick recently caught the wrath of the Hive for suggesting that Bey was not an icon.
