The recent results from the Fermilab muon g-2 experiment have caused quite a stir in the community. At the same time, there are persisting hints of lepton flavor universality violation in some rare B-meson decays. Taken at face value, if these anomalies are interpreted as of beyond the Standard Model (BSM) origin, it is conceivable that the same flavor-nonuniversal BSM framework could be responsible for both muon g-2 and B-physics anomalies. We will show this explicitly in a minimal R-parity violating supersymmetric scenario with relatively light third-generation sfermions. This is a well-motivated setup which naturally addresses the Higgs radiative stability and preserves the gauge coupling unification. Complementary tests and distinct signatures of this scenario in the high-p_T collider searches will also be discussed.
