An Atlanta Hawks fan was thrown out of Monday night’s game after getting into a heated argument with LeBron James. The incident has since gone viral and many are wondering just who woman the Los Angeles Lakers star later dubbed a “courtside Karen” is.
Juliana Carlos identified herself on social media as one of the four people escorted out of Atlanta’s State Farm Arena during a fourth-quarter disturbance that she said began when James said something to her husband, Chris Carlos.

James addressed the situation during a post-game press conference, and while he didn’t say how it began, he explained that there was a “back-and-forth” with a fan but admitted he didn’t believe they should’ve been kicked out.
The Hawks have launched an investigation into the incident, according to The Athletic.
