  1. She Stupid, REAL CRASH Dummy

  2. I really felt sorry for that kid but what is wrong with the parents, do they need the attention as if this was a big crime? A crazy entitled girl was racist and now you people want to start another war? My point is that this isn‘t a big story, the parents are traumatized? By what? Nobody was really scared nobody was really hurt. That women should go to jail asap tho, no disagree.

  3. “Son unfortunately it’s because your black” you can’t prove that it was because he is black, because she never said anything about him being black. The fact that she is instilling that in his brain could be cause for even more trauma than needed, .Now they had an entire vigil outside as if the kid had died. The girl was excessive, and now unfortunately the victim and his family are being excessive. Charge her and keep it moving .

  4. black people crying again lol

  5. She did attack him. It is as clear as day on camera. 🤦🏾‍♀️

  6. She didn’t just attack someone she assaulted a minor. I’m confused as to why she isn’t in jail?

  7. Stop letting your daughters get spoiled

  8. The news report look the attacker

  9. why didn’t they just call the phone see if it rings.

  10. They should make a new conviction called "racial justice" any kind of crime that happens to a black person, regardless of reason or context should get charged under "racial justice"

    And get min 5 years.

  11. Dude this lady is clearly crazy and thought that this guy stole her phone. Just tell her she’s wrong and call the cops yourself. My goodness it’s not because you’re black.

  12. Puerto Rican my ass… maybe her great grandmother. De puertorriqueña no tiene nada.

    Here they are once again, using a debatably racist issue to distract people from real news.

  14. Puerto Rican women, the best kind of crazy

    Bruh, how can someone so fine like that do something so messed up? She needs help and counseling.

  16. So the Hotel manager gets off scott free huh???

  17. If I was his father I would be extremely upset……extremely upset that my 14yo son was able to be tackled by this small 22yo woman. Jr should start hitting the gym and stop playing video games.

  18. She will get a reality show soon. In her mind, she believes that’s a given.

  19. She probably has shitty parents that never said no.

  20. sugar daddy needs to get his out of control sugar baby

    dumb b….

    A spoilt brat and her enabler messy mother will kill someone one day. Then pay a lawyer to say she has affluenza

  22. honestly, this is completely not news worthy

  23. This bitch is done love it! I hope she go to jail for two years!

  24. I hope they take this all the way!! Literally attacked a child.

  25. I just want to see her get humbled bc she is full of arrogance and no accountability.

  26. #modernwoman

  27. I’ve seen this girl so many times at this point. I think they’re gonna give her own reality show.

    So she’s 22 and Puerto Rican, what does that mean? She need to grow up!!… what she did is completely wrong and I hope she pays for it too thats why she is walking around like she is happy dandy. She feels untouched, I hope his parents don’t let it go till they get justice.

    i blame the mother whole heartedly. this type of shit is learned through years of "your not wrong sweetie, the world is". fucking disgusting. do the right fucking thing, and charge BOTH the mother and the daughter.

  31. But Kenyons mother is white

  32. Oh but guys she’s 22 and Puerto Rican. This makes everything okay

  33. NSA Watchlist Bait January 13, 2021 @ 11:07 pm

    Its funny how they need the police now

  34. people used to die and be ok with it . tackle someone nowadays and he is scarred beyond redemption for life

  35. Give her the chair

    "it might be because you’re black" It might also be because he was the only teenager around, I would assume a teenager stole my phone too, but there is no way I would attack anyone. Why does it always get racist? Just because something happens to a black person doesn’t mean it happened because he was black. That being said, stealing a phone, especially an iphone is completely useless. If it has a codelock you’ll never get in to it, even the fbi has trouble with that. Something happens to a black person, and the family pushes it like the kid was rejected from school for being black.

  37. Sad part is, her family is probably rich so she’ll most likely not face any serious consequences

  38. I’d like to see videos of women running around in their underwear and high heels tickling each other.


  40. From Coast to Coast to Take A Phone

  41. The woman is obviously crazy nothing to do with him being black. Stop with the BLM Bullshit trying to play the victim all the time it’s pathetic

  42. Racist??? The media really sucks, they will try to ruin anyone that makes a mistake

  43. 2:00 Umm yeah so just because you’re of an ethnicity other than White or the Jewish community doesn’t mean that you still can’t be a racist!

  44. Poor kid you can just tell he’s traumatized by the whole thing. She needs to get charged. This whole case is clear as can be I hope this family gets the justice they deserve.

  45. Wait a minute, Puerto Rican’s consider themselves black, and then blacker people call it racist

  46. I’d be embarrassed AF if that were my child 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️💯

  47. Lol wearing a face shield she’s obviously not the smartest

  48. "tracked down" ?????
    She was staying at the hotel. Getting her name and address can not have been s hard.
    the only way this took any time is if you were not intending to do anything about this.

  49. Why does she keep emphasising she’s 22 and what does being Puerto Rican have to do with anything? This woman needs to get her head examined.

    This is so stupid. People get framed all the time. But of course since it was a black person they get a whole ass snowflake story lol
