CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A hot mic and national cameras caught a woman yelling at Cavaliers forward, LeBron James to “suck it up” at the Cavs game versus the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Cleveland 19 has learned that woman is also a major competitor to Jimmy Haslam’s Pilot Flying J travel centers. 

The woman yelling from the front row is Judy Love. She and her husband Tom own the national chain Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores. The pair, according to Forbes are worth a combined $6 billion, and they are a major competitor to Jimmy Haslam’s Pilot Flying J. 

Forbes estimates that Pilot, with a value of $31 billion, is the eighth largest privately held company in the United States. Love’s comes in at No.14, with a value of $22.2 billion. 

The company is embracing the now viral video of Love yelling at King James. The twitter account for Love’s Travel Stops even retweeted a video of it.

Cleveland 19 reached out to Love’s people, asking if she would be willing to talk about the burn via Skype. The company responded by saying “Thank you for reaching out, but Judy is not doing interviews.” 

James also hasn’t spoken publicly about the heckle since it happened, but did post the video on his Instagram, with the comment, “”I guess she told me!! Hahaha #JustSuckItUpLebron #NoMomo #Classic.”
