‘Courtside Karen’ Issues Lengthy Apology After Brief Feud With LeBron James (PIC)
Juliana Carlos is done with her fifteen minutes of fame, since it has been nothing but non-stop people blasting her on social media.
On Tuesday, she issued an apology for her actions.
“To say things escalated quickly at yesterday’s game is an understatement, and I want to apologize for losing my cool and removing my mask in the heat of the moment,” Juliana said in a statement.
“My husband is a huge sports fan and we’re passionate people, and let’s be real; sports wouldn’t be sports without a little trash-talking.”
She continued, “What should have been quick back-and-forth between two adults got out of hand and my natural instinct to stand up for the man I love kicked in.”
“Did I get defensive when that happened? Yes. Did I use offensive language when I could have taken the higher road? yes. And for these things, I take full responsibility.”
Carlos became social media-famous Monday night when she was kicked out of the Hawks-Lakers game for screaming at LeBron James. She made things even worse by taking to her Instagram story and giving her side of the story.
“So, I’m minding my own business, and Chris has been a Hawks fan forever. He’s been watching the games for 10 years. Whatever, he has this issue with LeBron,” she screeched to her growing followers.
“I don’t have an issue with LeBron. I don’t give a f–k about LeBron. Anyway, I’m minding my own business, drinking my [beverage], having fun. All of the sudden, LeBron says something to my husband, and I see this and I stand up. And I go, ‘Don’t f–king talk to my husband.’ And he looks at me and he goes, ‘Sit the f–k down, b—h.’ And I go, ‘Don’t f–king call me a b—h. You sit the f–k down. Get the f–k out of here. Don’t f–king talk to my husband like that.’”
James wrote, “Courtside Karen was MAD MAD!!” on Twitter.
