The fast lane to being the next star of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” has some speed bumps.
Juliana Carlos became social-media famous on Monday night when she was kicked out of the Hawks-Lakers game for screaming at LeBron James. As she was being escorted out of State Farm Arena, she posted a profanity-laced video on Instagram ripping James. She claims James started the altercation by cursing at her husband, Chris Carlos.
Hawks fans booted from game after courtside argument with LeBron James
You come at King James, you best not miss. A…
“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.’”
Carlos ended the night by adding several photos of posts featuring her in Instagram stories.
James was not overly critical of her and her group after the game, saying “they might have had a couple of drinks.” Later on, perhaps after seeing Carlos’ video, James wrote “Courtside Karen was MAD MAD!!” on Twitter.
The internet was far less kind as memes and criticism flooded Twitter commenting on everything from Carlos’ appearance to the apparent age gap with her husband.

The memes even brought James’ wife Savannah into the fun:
