Basketball star lashes out at female audience member
A party of four was escorted out of an NBA game on Monday after getting into a heated argument with Los Angeles Lakers star Lebron James.
According to Juliana Carlos, the trouble started when James looked at her husband during the game and “cussed him out.”
“I stood up and I go, ‘Don’t f**king talk to my husband. Talk to my husband one more time and I will f**k you up.’ And he started fighting with me, he goes, ‘Shut your mouth dumb b**ch,’ and I go, ‘You shut your f**king mouth b**ch.’”

Lebron essentially confirmed Carlos’ story, saying, “There was a back and forth between two grown men and we said our piece, he said his piece, I said my piece and then someone else jumped into it and said their piece.”
He did add, “I don’t think they should have been kicked out.”
Later, James went to Twitter, labeling the woman “Courtside Karen.”
So, the players can yell slurs at female audience members, but fans will be kicked out of the game for doing the same?
