I’m pretty sure that you probably would have caught that video that went viral over the weekend where some annoying jobsworth woman in Central Park threatened to call the police on a black man for chewing her out for having her dog off its leash in an area where she was specifically supposed to not do so, and I’m pretty sure that you’ll probably be pleased to see that she’s getting her comeuppance for being a right aggy bitch.

Less than 24 hours after the video surfaced, it’s emerged that Amy Cooper has now lost her job, had her dog taken away from her because of the way that she was treating it in the video – grabbing and pulling it by the neck – and the President of the Central Park Civic Association wants to ban her for life as well. Here’s all the proof, as well as an interview she did with CNN:
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. pic.twitter.com/3YnzuATsDm

Following our internal review of the incident in Central Park yesterday, we have made the decision to terminate the employee involved, effective immediately. We do not tolerate racism of any kind at Franklin Templeton.

I’m not a racist. I did not mean to harm that man in any way.
My entire life is being destroyed right now.
I think I was just scared. When you’re alone in the Ramble, you don’t know what’s happening.
It’s not excusable, it’s not defensible.
I mean that’s kind of a flimsy excuse but you kind of think that maybe people are overreacting to this one a bit, because her life literally has been completely destroyed. But then I suppose you just watch the video again and see how clearly unacceptable her behaviour is and think no, she probably does deserve for all this to be happening to her so that other people stop acting like that in the future and racism may finally be obliterated once and for all.
Sadly, I think we’ll probably get another one of these videos in the next few weeks though instead. So it goes.
For more of the same, check out this white woman who stopped a black man from entering his own building and received the same treatment. It’s happening everywhere.
