In North Carolina, a woman harassed two black sisters who were waiting outside of an apartment complex in South Charlotte for an AAA meeting.
She has since been coined “South Park Susan.”
Chele Garris shared videos of the incident, posting them to Facebook.
In the videos, the woman continued to ask the sisters, “Do you live here?”
She also said repeatedly “I’m white … and I make $125,000 a year and I want to make sure that you’re all up in here.”
The two sisters were currently waiting for a vehicle roadside assistance service just outside the SouthPark’s Camden Fairview Apartments when the woman stated how she was “fucking fabulous.”
She then threatened to “bring out my concealed weapons.”
“Is your boyfriend here? Is your baby daddy here? Nobody cares, I’m white and I’m hot,” she said.
The woman continued to say: “You’re hanging around in a place you don’t belong.”
And despite the events of the video taking place on October 19th, the videos have gone viral since Friday when they were uploaded to social media.
The two sisters shared on Saturday with Fox 8 how they were “so distraught and still very upset about what has taken place only because of the color of our skin.”
“It’s so upsetting to know that today we still have this overt racism going on in 2018,” they said.
And thanks to social media, users were able to identify the woman — sharing that she worked for Spectrum Enterprises — a company that is a part of Charter Communications.
Local ABC affiliate WSOC-TV released a statement saying she had been terminated and only identified the woman by her last name.
“The incident recorded in Charlotte is a blatant violation of Charter’s code of conduct and clearly disregards the company’s commitment to inclusion and respectful behavior,” it said. “As such, Ms. Westwood’s employment with the company has been terminated, effective immediately.”
A Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department spokesman told HuffPost that though they could not name the suspect, that while they could not confirm the name of the suspect, “four criminal summons’ have been issued” including “two counts of communicating threats and two counts of simple assault.”
A statement said, “Once the summons’ have been served the suspects [sic] name can be released.”
Many were obviously upset over the events, with many outraged comments from Facebook. One user praised the sisters for standing up for themselves, saying:
“I am so glad that you ladies recorded everything and I’m also glad to see all of the unity and support. It’s time to make it known that you don’t have to like me because of the color of my skin, BUT YOU WILL RESPECT ME. This is not back in the day when this kind of treatment was tolerated because there weren’t any options…..and rather you like it or not YOU ARE NOT BETTER THAN ME!”
Amen to that.
