‘Soho Karen’ Charged With Hate Crime for Attacking Black Teen in New York

The woman dubbed “Soho Karen” pleaded not guilty to hate crime charges in New York.

It comes months after 22-year-old Miya Ponsetto was seen on surveillance tackling a Black teenager. In December 2020, she falsely accused the son of Black jazz musician Keyon Harrold of stealing her cell phone. She physically attacked the teen and it was caught on video, which has since gone viral. Ponsetto was arrested in January and charged with two counts of attempted assault, attempted robbery, grand larceny and endangering the welfare of a child. Ponsetto’s phone was not stolen by the teen and instead left in a Lyft and returned to the hotel by the driver.
