Woman Calls 9-1-1 Claiming She's Threatened After She Damaged Vehicle
By edhat staff
A video is going viral of a white woman in the Gelson's parking lot calling 9-1-1 claiming she feels threatened after she damages another person's vehicle and refuses to provide insurance.
The Instagram paged titled "Karen's Going Wild" published the video on Wednesday stating the woman called 9-1-1 on a Latin man stating he was "threatening her" after he asked for her insurance information.
The term "Karen" is a slang term for an obnoxious, angry, entitled, and often racist middle-aged white woman who uses her privilege to get her way or police other people's behaviors. In the past year, the term has gained traction as videos have gone viral showing white women engaging in racist acts, according to dictionary.com.
It appears the video was captured in front of the Cox Communications building in the parking lot of the Gelson's market on upper State Street. The man who captured the video claims the woman damaged his vehicle as he shows a large scrape across the passenger side mirror and is refusing to provide her insurance information because he "looks a certain way."
"I do want to give you the insurance I just gotta call 911 first," the woman is heard saying on the video. She's then seen yelling at the man stating "I'm afraid of you" as he calmly asks for her insurance.
At the end of the video, the woman admits she doesn't have her insurance information. Under California Vehicle Code Section 16029, it is illegal to drive a vehicle without evidence of financial responsibility.
