Juliana Carlos aka “Courtside Karen” is changing her tune after getting into a fight with LeBron James during a game this week.
The wannabe Instagram influencer aka Juliana aka Karen has released an apology to LeBron after Monday night’s antics. She became infamous overnight after being escorted out of the Lakers/Hawks game. Juliana, who was with her husband, stood up from her chair and caused a scene.
In the video, Juliana is seen shouting at him while he is playing. “Courtside Karen” has been roasted all day and appears to wants to move on.
The model (?) wrote on her social media, “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.”
She added, “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 and my natural instinct to stand up for the man I love kicked in.”

Juliana originally claimed she only started getting into it with LeBron after the NBA star cursed at her husband sitting next to her.
Her statement continued, “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.”
The apology hasn’t stopped Juliana from being roasted on Twitter. One fan posted a video of Beyoncé kicking Ali Larter’s butt in the movie “Obsessed” captioned, “Savannah James putting hands on Courtside Karen when she finds Juliana Carlos after heckling LeBron.
"At the end of the day, I'm happy fans are back in the building. … I miss that interaction. … We as players need that interaction."

After being escorted out of the venue, Juliana posted a video where she ripped into LeBron. She tried explaining the incident saying, “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.’
She claimed, “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.’”
