The longtime publicist for Beyonce Knowles-Carter was forced to issue a statement to the singer’s rabid fans after she sparked death threats by simply staring at the wife of the Golden State Warriors owner.

Joseph Lacob, right, and his wife Nicole Curran, 2nd from right, invited Jay-Z, left, and Beyonce to sit courtside with them during Game 3 of the NBA Finals. While leaning over to ask Jay-Z what he wanted to drink, Beyonce glared at Nicole. That rude glare was caught on video and uploaded to by ESPN.

Within hours Nicole began receiving death threats from Beyonce’s crazed fans who also flooded her social media timeline with stinging bee emojis.

Nicole was reduced to tears, and she reached out to Jay-Z and Beyonce to call off the dogs.

That’s when Beyonce’s longtime publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure responded to the Beyhive’s hateful Instagram bullying by reminding them to be nice and to take their medicine.

It should be noted that Beyonce herself never said a word to her fans – even though she controls her social media account.

Noel-Schure posted a #tbt photo of Bey and Jay-Z from their last tour, and then lectured the fans about spewing hate in their queen’s name.

Beyonce could have avoided the entire mess by being respectful to her hostess who gave her and her husband $75,000 courtside seats for free. It’s doubtful they will be invited to sit courtside for Game 4 tonight at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
