Who is Leah? Road Rage Karen #Ihaveablackhusband
A white woman who has only been identified by her first name, Leah, flipped a Black man off in traffic and allegedly called him the N-word and then followed him. When he followed her and filmed her, she went into hysterical for close to 15 minutes.
The Black man, Karlos Dillard shared the bizarre incident on his Instagram making ‘I have a black husband.’ Karlos shared the video on his Instagram handle on June 22 and wrote, “Karen got caught with her road rage. I’m literally not leaving my house anymore. This Karen cut me off, break checked me and then followed me for 4 blocks. When I started recording her antics she peeled off and tried to get away with her racism. I had time today to let her know that I am not the one. I’m glad SEVERAL white and black people saw her racism and had my back.”
In the video, Karlos is seen following the woman all the way to her house to ask why she flipped him off when he was not at fault. However, on seeing Karlos, she begins to cry loudly and says “I have a black husband”. When Karlos asks her why she cut him off, the woman accuses him of “attacking” her.
Her yelling and screaming intensify and bystanders rush to stop the woman from creating a further commotion. When Karlos explains the situation, one witness agrees that they saw the woman flip him off. The 14-minute-long video sees Karlos finally speak to the woman with the help of others as she continues to defend herself saying she didn’t see who was in the car. However, Karlos tells his viewers that he was ill-treated for being black.
Internet Users are Divided on Whether she Used the N-Word or Not
In the video footage, Karlos mostly confronts the woman for Flipping her finger on him. Internet users are divided on whether she used a racial slur or not with both having debatable points. One twitter user wrote, “saying “I have a black husband” or anything of that nature(black friend, coworker, CHILD,etc.) does not mean you’re not racist..undercover racists are the worst. the bold ones are the ones we shouldn’t fear.. but them undercovers are a WHOLE NOTHER STORY.” While another added, “I have a black husband” is not an excuse for being racist then she gonna be like you’re attacking me when bro was like 6 ft away from her LMAOO she so dumb bra”.
Another one wrote, “#I HAVE A BLACK HUSBAND Sometimes it’s best to keep it moving. People such as this woman could get a brother shot. Allow her to live in her racist world. Don’t allow her misery to become your company.”
“The fact that Karen felt the need to say #IHaveABlackHusband shows that she knows she was being racist” was another’s person’s comment on the whole incident. “I have a black husband” doesn’t excuse your racism. Also, what was that proving?? That you don’t have respect for his race?? asked another social media user.
