Fans have taken to Twitter to weigh in on Beyoncé's courtside countenance
The Beyhive is swarming.
On Wednesday, Beyoncé and husband JAY-Z attended the Golden State Warriors’ game against the Toronto Raptors, where the power couple sat courtside next to Nicole Curran, wife of the Warriors’ owner Joe Lacob. And a hilarious moment from the night has since gone viral.
In a short clip shared by ESPN, Beyoncé, 37, is seen smiling wide — but her cheery demeanor quickly fades as Curran leans over her to chat with JAY-Z, 49.
The video spread like wildfire on Twitter and became a meme as fans called out Curran for daring to “invade” their queen’s space.
“I would leave the earth if Beyoncé looked this ready to smack me,” one user wrote, later adding, “THE NERVE TO INVADE BEYONCE’S PERSONAL SPACE WHILE WEARING THOSE BOOTS,” referring to Curran’s glittery gold thigh-high boots.
Some referenced other memes to crack a joke, like a famous GIF of Kanye West laughing and then immediately making a serious face.
“Beyoncé’s doing her best ye impression,” the user wrote.
The star’s 2006 hit “Irreplaceable” also earned a shout-out, with one fan tweaking the lyrics to fit the situation.
“If ol girl knows what’s good for her, she’ll move a little to the left, to the left,” the user joked.
Curran’s Instagram was set to private after the Beyhive flooded her posts with bee emojis, though she did reportedly address the incident with a photo.
“We should all help and support each other,” she captioned of photo from the game, according to Page Six.
On Thursday night, Beyoncé’s publicist asked members of the Beyhive to not “spew hate” at Curran.
“I am looking back today at the start of The OTRII tour, one year ago. It was a place of joy, unimaginable entertainment from two of the best performers in the world, and a place of love,” Yvette Noel-Schure captioned an Instagram photo of Beyoncé and JAY-Z.
“Every single day on that tour I saw love. Which is why I also want to speak here to the beautiful BeyHive.”
Noel-Schure went on to explain that although the love fans have for Beyoncé “runs deep” that same love “has to be given to every human.”
“It will bring no joy to the person you love so much if you spew hate in her name. We love you,” Noel-Schure added.
