A video Posted on Lambert on her YouTube channel and TikTok shows what Transpired
According to Lambert, she and her friend, who is also Black, decided to spend a day vlogging across New York City. They were going around Central Park when her portable charger fell from her friend’s CitiBike. A video shared by Lambert on her YouTube channel and TikTok, a woman can be seen refusing to return her portable charger. Lotfi who is being dubbed by netizens as ‘Central Park Karen’, went to the extent of calling 911 and falsely accused the two vloggers of ‘touching’, ‘threatening’, and ‘beating’ her.
During the video, when Lambert asks the woman if she is racist, she responds, “Yes, I am. I pick my race over any race. What’s your problem?” The matter was later resolved by the intervention of the police who returned Lambert’s charger to her. Presently, it is a hate crime by law in New York to make a false call to 911 on racist grounds.
In the video, the woman is also seen speaking to a 911 dispatcher on her phone saying, “Ma’am they don’t leave me, there are two girls. They are surrounding me and they are threatening me that they are going to beat me or something.” Lambert can be heard telling her off-camera not to do that and calling her a ‘liar’.
She also reminds the woman, “You know that’s illegal now right?” Later the woman also tells the 911 dispatcher, “They’re getting close to me and they’re already touching me,” while the video does not show any sign of touching or threatening from Lambert’s end.
Later, the woman threatens to break the charger telling Lambert, “I’m going throw it away. You haven’t paid for it, your daddy paid for it, or maybe your sister paid for it.”
The video proceeds to show the debating trio being approached by a group of horse-mounted NYC police officers, who then intervene to resolve the issue.
Lambert later narrated the incident in the video while getting emotion
She is not the first Central Park Karen
It’s seems, after all, we are going to have a reboot of Central Park Karen since Atoosa Lotfi is not the first Central Park Karen. Back in 2020 Amy Cooper, a white woman who called police on Christian Cooper, a black man, in Central Park. Cooper’s now infamous encounter with the birdwatcher, Christian Cooper, happened early in the morning on May 25 in the Ramble, a section of Central Park between 73 and 78 St. Cooper had her dog off the leash, and when Christian complained, things escalated.
The woman then called the police, which Christian captured on video, and claimed she was being threatened by an “African American man.”
Since the incident, Cooper has lost her job at Franklin Templeton and initially lost her dog to an animal rescue group.
al about the ordeal.
