LeBron James dubs blonde, maskless, screaming heckler ‘Courtside Karen’

LeBron James in Berlin

I wish everyone a happy Black History Month! It looks like it’s going to be a bad month for racists, dumbasses and Karens. Last night, the LA Lakers were playing the Atlanta Hawks. The NBA is allowing for limited in-person attendance for the games now, which includes courtside seats. Masks mandatory for attendees. Well, a blonde Karen (Karen was a Hawks fan) decided that she was going to be the one to talk sh-t to LeBron James on the first day of Black History Month. This is how the TV broadcast went:

You can see that Karen pulled her mask down to point her finger and scream at LeBron as he watched her from mid-court and seemingly explained to some Hawks players that he had no idea what she was on about. You can also see some security people starting to fuss around her, and shortly after this, she and her husband were kicked out of the game. We know this because she live-streamed herself whining about the whole ordeal. Since Karen wants to be famous, her real name is Juliana Carlos. She claims to be 25 years old and her husband is much older. After the game (which the Lakers won), LeBron said this:

James was not asked postgame about Carlos’ name-calling allegation, but he was not fazed by the incident and said he felt like an ejection was unnecessary.

“At the end of the day, I’m happy fans are back in the building,” he said after putting up 21 points, nine assists and seven rebounds to help L.A. to the road win. “I miss that interaction. I need that interaction; we as players need that interaction. I don’t feel like it was warranted to be kicked out.”

He did say that alcohol could have been a factor, however. “They might have had a couple drinks, maybe. And they could have probably kept it going during the game, and the game wouldn’t have been about the game no more, so I think the referees did what they had to do.”

Other players and coaches on both teams noted that the fact that Karen pulled her mask down was more of a factor in her removal than the absolute hissy fit she directed at LeBron. After the game, LeBron dubbed her Courtside Karen which is *chef’s kiss*. I’m also including one of SEVERAL rants she posted online last night, just so you can see what LeBron was dealing with.

    25?! Sure, Jan. Everything about her is fake and trashy…her nails, lips, boobs, hair, nose, the way she speaks.

    • STRIPE says:

      She could be 25 and just look older due to all the work she’s had done. I’ve seen that happen many times while living in LA.

    • Mac says:

      Yikes! Is her plastic surgery goal Human Barbie?

    • whatWHAT? says:

      her face (except her oversized duck lips) DOESN’T MOVE. that always freaks me out. and her nose is practically non-existent, like those anime girls.

      and I SERIOUSLY doubt LeBron said “sit the f down b*tch”. that is NOT like him at all.

      • Lilly (with the double-L) says:

        Agreed @whatWhat? a Black man being demonized – surprise, surprise. He is so professional and does great work for youth. LeBron is awesome and he handled this so well. I hope she is quickly forgotten. At 25 ;) she has time to redeem herself and find a new, and better calling.

    • anniebel says:

      She went to HS near me and is definitely between 25-30, guess racism and narcissism age you a ton on top of poor fillers.

  2. Catwoman says:

    25 years old (cough), all natural (cough, cough), genius IQ (ack!!), and the epitome of class (I’m dead)….. Quintessential Karen!

  3. Amy Bee says:

    She’s supposed to be 25?

  4. Lady Luna says:

    Cringe! This lady is not 25! There’s a pic on her ig with a kid and he looks about 5, so she’s about 30 or so.

  5. M says:

    This is very much the side of America that can’t be fixed even with Trump gone and Biden in. None of us can stand this.

    • StormsMama says:

      Agreed
      It’s like Bitch this game isn’t about you
      No one GAF about YOU
      Stop trying to create drama
      Lebron doesn’t need you Byeeeeeeeee

  6. Joanna says:

    She is just nasty. Yuck. I swear but she takes it to a whole other level 🙄 shows again, money can’t buy class

  7. lassie says:

    That’s a hard 25.

  8. Florence says:

    If she’s 25 I’m Princess Margaret.

    I can smell the fake tan from here.

  9. Kealeen says:

    How soon until this aspiring Kim Zolciak posts pics from Mar-a-Lago?

  10. It’sJustBlanche says:

    OK first of all, cussing on any social media is just tacky and makes you look stupid. And secondly, I think it’s hard to tell how old people are these days because they use these filters which make them look older than they are. I have a friend who posts pictures where she literally looks like an egg.

  11. MellyMel says:

    Was this her audition to try to get on the Real Housewives?? And I agree with everyone…lady is NOT 25, like how?!

  12. Darla says:

    So, a lot of people just assume alcohol and go no further. This looks like a cokehead situation to me. A lot of times crazy isht happens and folks don’t realize they’re dealing with someone coked out of the minds, but I can usually spot it. Like, Don JR, isn’t snorting up the ENTIRE country’s supply by himself, ya know?

    Add in a very large scoop of racist entitlement and you get this mess.

  13. Darla says:

    Like, “my husband has a problem with LeBron James”. WHO GIVES A F lady? Do you realize who you are talking about? Nobody knows or cares about your husband. The white entitlement in that isht is so enraging, but she’s also coked up. A real loser, in other words.

  14. Chaine says:

    Love how the announcer says “She looks like that one meme of the lady and the cat”-OMG perfect!

  15. Lightpurple says:

    I don’t know what the rules are in Atlanta but my Celtics season ticket contract clearly states that if anyone occupying my seats is ejected for any reason, we not only lose the seats but cannot ever purchase tickets in our name for any other event at the Garden. And she seriously needs to stop referring to herself as a girl.

  16. Tiffany says:

    So Investigation Twitter was on it again with this clown and her Sugar Daddy She Had To Settle For. Guess what they are??? Yep.

    Also, there is another quote from LBJ that just lands and I am still laughing at it. He straight up called them father and daughter and was shocked to learn they were married.

    • Yoyo says:

      That was cruel but funny.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      LOL – what did CSI: Twitter turn up about them?

      Also, someone needs to do a Twitter Investigates show, as seriously the Twitteratti could solve 99% of crimes.

      • Tiffany says:

        Basically that this clown’s husband is a Trumper and feels that it is personal that not only does LBJ more than likely has a phone number to contact President Obama, but that two Black men in America are thriving and using their clout to make this country a better place.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Ah – I googled her and saw photos with her husband and yeah he has MAGAt written all over him. And they look more like Grandpa with his favourite grand daughter.

      • minx says:

        Oh yes, he looks like a big old knucklehead Trumper. Also the pic I saw she hadn’t had her most recent nose job.

  17. Midge says:

    Yeah, this was planned. She wants to be famous. God, her look is so tired and unoriginal. Thanks Kardashians.

  18. Mina_Esq says:

    lol LeBron. Remember when he called Trump a bum? The man knows how to perfectly capture a person’s entire vibe in just one word or two 😂

  19. Merricat says:

    I think heckling someone at their job is pretty tacky. Also, she seems to be going for a look that says “Bratz Doll.” Shudder.

  20. Roo says:

    I am comfortable speaking on behalf of all Atlantans and Hawks fans when I say we don’t want her.

  21. lowercaselois says:

    So Courtside Karen is crying all over social media. Lebron James has18 years of nothing but a respectable NBA career and philanthropy . I’m suppose to believe some loud mouth 25 year old and Yeah okay.

    • Nina Simone says:

      Yes, I don’t believe he called her a bitch etc. It would have been picked up by mics. Plus he’s dealt with hecklers his entire career- some from opposing teams. he just ignores them and keeps it playing. Heavy is the head that wears the crown.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I don’t believe it either. I know some folks may not like him but he IS a class act and wouldn’t call some random woman a b*tch or tell her “FU”.

      ESPECIALLY if he thought she was there with her dad. lmao

      • Tiffany says:

        There was a mic next to Lebron and he did tell them to ‘sit their ass*s down’. He did call her husband ‘Old steroid a**’.

        After seeing her father/husband’s pic, where was the lie?

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Yes, this. She is lying about LeBron, that isn’t his energy at all.

  22. Hope says:

    I went down the rabbit hole of her IG feed. She loves a pretty shallow life and is clearly looking to get more exposure. Definitely a Real Housewives gig is on her wishlist.

    I saw the you g boy in one photo – that’s one of his kids (he has other children).

    Her engagement ring and wedding band are so over the top gaudy too.

  23. Aphra says:

    Wow she’s so elegant and charming!

    (Obviously sarcastic — this is positively the grossest person I have ever seen in my life).

  24. Veronica S. says:

    Man, is she even allowed to have beef with LeBron? I know we extended legal person rights to corporate entities in America, but I’m not sure that included blow up dolls.

  25. Murphy says:

    He said that from all the way across the court? To some rando on the sideline? Ok Karen.

  26. Eenie Googles says:

    I. Love. Him.

  27. Nicole says:

    Yikes.

  28. BeanieBean says:

    That bedazzled fishnet dress of hers does NOT look comfortable to sit in. What an idiot.

  29. Laura-j says:

    LeBron isn’t that guy. No way he called her a bitch out of nowhere. Or at all.

    Maybe all those filters have clouded her view of reality?

  30. JRenee says:

    This pulling the mask down is why fans haven’t been allowed in. Trash talk through your mask if you have to, but keep your mask on!

  31. Anna says:

    Throughout history and present, white women have falsely accused Black men and boys and made up lies about things they supposedly said or did. This is not Emmett Till but my point is, WWs actions have dire consequences and they know it. In this situation, LeBron is the star, the one respected and in charge so all she can do is rant on her personal social media and make up lies that hopefully go nowhere. But for those who do not have that level of power and visibility, it’s a whole different story. I’m glad that people are seeing her for the b.s. she is but I’m finding it hard to laugh about this. Black people are tired. Tired.

  32. Heather says:

    I really want the minute back of my life that I wasted watching her Instagram post. What has our world come to? She is vile, utterly devoid of any class, and cussing like some back-alley-trailer tramp. Who raised her? Has she no morals, shame?

    I won’t even comment on her “look.”

    How humiliating for America, that our country can produce such trash.
