Sarah Jane Comrie, a New York City woman, is now the latest victim of the online mob.
Comrie is fighting claims that she’s a racist after a video of her refusing to give up her Citi Bike to a group of young black men went viral.
Comrie is pictured crying in the video and screaming “help.”
Activists took to Twitter to slam the woman, including Attorney Ben Crump.
He wrote, “A white woman was caught on camera attempting to STEAL a Citi Bike from a young Black man in NYC. She grossly tried to weaponize her tears to paint this man as a threat. This is EXACTLY the type of behavior that has endangered so many Black men in the past!”
It was later proven through receipts that the woman in question had paid for the Citi Bike, and the young black men were trying to take it from her.
Despite the woman being in the right, she was doxed online — and is six-months pregnant.
Sara Gonzales of “The News & Why It Matters” threw in her two cents.
“Yes, I’m sure that six-month pregnant woman is such a danger to that group of black men. I’m sure she stood a chance should any sort of fight break out,” Gonzales mocked.
Not only was the woman forced to leave her home because strangers were attempting to come after her and her husband, but her employer put her on leave after viewing the video.
She is now suing for defamation.
Eric July joined Gonzales to discuss the matter.
July says people online have been “race-baiting, calling her this and this and that just because she had a conflict with someone that is a different color than her. And this is why the race conversation in this country continues to escalate.”
