A Twitter user named Melody Cooper posted a disturbing clip of a white woman (later revealed as Amy Cooper) in New York City calling the cops on a Black man for recording her in Central Park.
“Oh, when Karens take a walk with their dogs off leash in the famous Bramble in NY’s Central Park, where it is clearly posted on signs that dogs MUST be leashed at all times, and someone like my brother (an avid birder) politely asks her to put her dog on the leash,” was the message Melody Cooper posted as a caption to the one minute clip.
The fact that so many people seemed to be more concerned about the welfare of the dog than the Black man who is seemingly being accused of a false crime is a matter for another time—but we won’t forget.
Of course, Twitter also found the Black man, and his name is Christian Cooper—and Amy clearly messed with the wrong guy, a generally upstanding citizen.
