On Monday, in Central Park, Amy Cooper —a white woman—called the cops on Christian Cooper (no relation)—a black man—and falsely accused him of attacking her after Christian asked her to put a leash on her dog.
The incident was caught on video and it shows Amy walking her dog without a leash. Once she spotted the camera she demanded Christian to stop recording her—then she threatened to call the cops, according to TMZ.
NYPD responded to the call but by the time officials arrived both parties left the scene, so no tickets were issued nor were arrests made. Authorities said the initial dispatch call was reported as a possible assault.
But that didn’t stop people from bashing “Central Park Karen” after the video went viral. It was reported that Amy has been placed on administrative leave by her employer an investment company called Franklin Templeton in light of the scandal.
