Attorney Anthony M. Barbuto who is representing Filomina Tobias issued a statement Tuesday, saying:

"Ms. Tobias is distressed at the needless national attention that this incident has garnered and the unwarranted invasion of privacy by the press into her personal life, including the malicious and untrue reporting about her husband’s tragic passing. What started as a simple and ill-mannered gesture that was made towards a member of the opposing team who had just been ejected has now transformed into a very ugly and despicable intrusion into Ms. Tobias’s past. Ms. Tobias has been a devoted Miami Heat fan for as long as she can remember, and like many other devoted fans, she unfortunately allowed her passion for the team to disregard proper fan etiquette. She is only human and her emotions got the best of her. She offers her genuine apologies to anyone she has offended and she requests that her privacy as well as he privacy of her family be respected at this time. With that said, Ms. Tobias remains loyal to the Miami Heat."
