Juliana Carlos, the woman social media has dubbed as #CourtsideKaren, has taken to social media to issue a public apology for heckling LeBron James to the point of being removed from the State Farm Arena on Monday night.
Initially, Juliana stood ten toes down and defended her actions in a video posted on her Instagram page, but it appears the negative attention she brought on herself and her hubby became too much to bear.
The apology, posted on Tuesday afternoon, reads:
About last night…
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. 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. What should have been a quick back-and-forth between two adults got out of hand my natural instincts 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.

Do you think #CourtsideKaren’s apology was sincere or is she tired of getting dragged?
