Much has been of Game 3’s subplot when it appeared Beyoncé was not fond of Nicole Curran, wife of Warriors owner Joe Lacob, leaning over and saying something to Jay-Z. Curran spoke to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne in tears explaining she disabled her Instagram account after a night full of death threats on social media.

Curran also cleared up what happened last night amid much speculation online. Telling Shelburne she leaned over as she could not hear the question Jay-Z asked her due to the loud atmosphere.

It goes without saying this is incredibly disappointing, sad, and infuriating that anyone would have to experience this. Social media can be a lot of fun, and for sports fans, the place to be for up-to-the-minute news. However, situations like this make it hard to realize the good in it.
