White Woman Threatens To Calls Cops On 8Yo Girl For Selling Water

White Woman Threatens To Calls Cops On 8Yo Girl For Selling Water

Ettel said she asked the building security to intervene but to no avail.

"This woman don't want a little girl to sell some water, she's calling the police on an 8-year-old little girl", the mother said.

"I want the little girl to know that it's not her fault", Alison Ettel, who is white, groveled on NBC's "Today" show Monday, and said she has received hate mail and death threats.

"It just happened again in the Bay Area", civil rights activist Shaun King wrote in a tweet that also included video of the interaction.

Austin captured the encounter on her camera phone and posted it online, which turned Ettel into an instant celebrity of sorts and not in a good way. It wasn't so much their propensity for calling the police over trivial matters that angered people but their eagerness at throwing vulnerable people under the bus. That was a mistake, a complete mistake.

CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill chimed in: 'If you call the police on an 8 year old Black child selling water, you're saying that you don't care if that child lives or dies.

There is, of course, tremendous irony in someone selling marijuana-which is legal in California but illegal under federal law-calling the police on a kid selling water.

Ettel told the Post she was working in her home office with the windows open but chose not to close them because it would've been too hot. She added, "It was literally nonstop".

However, Alison later told HuffPost that she was only "pretending" to call the police, and that it "didn't have a racial component to it". "And I said, 'Please, I'm trying to work". "I never expected all of this to come from me posting a video of a woman who was harassing my daughter".

She shared an update on Instagram a few hours later, thanking her supporters and denouncing the haters, telling them to "kiss [her] and [her] kids' a**es". A video of the incident was recorded by Jordan's mother Erin Austin.

Ettel would only identify her partner by his first name, Harry; an interview previous year in Emerald magazine says "he prefers not to use his full name". Austin said the police never showed up after the phone call.

"I want to wish 8-year-old Jordan and her family all the best, and I hope they have a magical time at Disneyland", Brannon said on Instagram.

At least three cannabis retailers, Magnolia Oakland, SPARC and Barbary Coast, announced that they will no longer carry Treatwell products.
