tripod sockets aren't for carrying the weight of cameras/lenses

The bottom of the camera is bent down at the tripod socket. Why do you say that the shoulder strap didn't cause the damage?

Apologies,you didn't mention that the strap was attached to the tripod socket rather than the lugs.

Another reason to not use these daft straps attached to the tripod socket. You where not using the camera "as intended" so maybe it is actually your own fault in this case...The tripod socket is for putting the camera on a tripod. No where in the Nikon manual does it say you should suspend the weight of a camera and lens from it. Sorry to state the obvious, take it as a very expensive lesson learned, and that sucks. Black rapid stuff I don't get in general...partly for this reason.
