New York Karen Fired After Telling Black Couple To ‘Go Back To Your Hood’

A white woman in Brooklyn has been fired from her job after telling a Black couple at a dog park to “go back to your hood.” Frederick Joseph said he and his partner were targeted by the white woman because she confused his dog with another dog that had been barking loudly, CBS New York reports

“She’s like, ‘You’re not from around here. Go back to your hood. Stay in your hood,’” Joseph said. “So I’m like, ‘Stay in my hood?’ Right, like? ‘You’re being racist right now,’ and she’s like, ‘I’m not being racist.’”

In a video Joseph posted on Twitter, the couple repeatedly asked the woman to confirm if she just told them to “stay in your hood.” She responded by flipping them off, trying to knock the phone out of Joseph’s hand and making herself appear to be the victim.
