Terrell Owens, a legendary retired football player, shared video of a fight with “Karen,” a Florida neighbor, on Thursday after he claims she complained to deputies about his driving.
In an Instagram video that had received more than 166,000 views as of Friday morning, Owens claimed that a woman had yelled at him to slow down while he was on his way to the mailbox on Wednesday night.
According to the former player’s Instagram video, the Hall of Fame wide receiver said that when Owens stopped to respond to her, she dialed 911 and he waited for deputies to arrive.
Black male Owens, who addressed the camera, called the woman “Karen” repeatedly during the 11-minute clip.
As a result, her husband wanted to advise me to stop calling her Karen, according to Owens. They believed I would simply submit and listen to the chaos. OK. America, this is where we are.
White women who call the police to report people of color for ostensibly unimportant, noncriminal behaviors have come to be known as “Karen.”
“She said that I followed her. Really?” stated Owens. “He then questioned why I referred to her as “Karen.” Karens work in this manner.”
According to a department statement, a Broward County sheriff’s officer “responded to a disturbance complaint in the 4000 block of Pelicano Way in Deerfield Beach” at around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
According to the department’s statement, “the deputy made contact with a man and a woman on site who were having a verbal argument.” “The parties were divided, and the matter was settled.”
The woman’s identity was withheld by the sheriff.
In 911 recordings that the police department made available, a lady reported that a guy was “driving aggressively and almost hit me” before “getting out of the car to threaten me.”
He is an African American person, the woman declared.
She responded when asked if the man was armed: “I’m not sure. He exited the vehicle.”
Did you want an officer to respond, the dispatcher eventually enquired?
“Yes, please,” she reacted.
Owens identified the lady he says accosted him and dialed 911 in a subsequent Instagram post. In the local phone books, there was no one by that name.
Owens stated, “I want to let you all know that this Karen stuff is very true. It really is real.
On Friday, it was impossible to reach Owens for any comment.
