Well this was a crazy experience. A woman documented a situation that went down in a Victoria's Secret where she was attacked by a woman and then the woman tried to say she was the victim.
The "Karen's" real name is Abigail and now people are calling her the "Victoria's Secret Karen" - the whole thing went down at a Mall in New Jersey.
In the video you can see Abigail attack the woman filming and then starts to fake cry and claim she is the victim. At one point she's on the floor screaming and "crying" for security. This woman needs some serious help.
The woman that posted the video stated that she is not the one that filmed the video nor was she there. But she also added this in the caption.
"The video begins with Abigail attempting to hit the woman behind the camera only to realize she’s being recorded. What follows is 20 minutes of white female privilege on display clear as day. First, she attempts to scream, demanding the Black woman be removed from the store. Once that didn’t work, she decided to fake a mental breakdown of some sort, gaining the sympathy of nearly everyone in the store DESPITE her being the aggressor in this situation. The woman behind the camera is asked to move away and put her phone away repeatedly as this maskless woman chases her around the store, threatening her safety and screaming at the top of her lungs. She pretends to faint and screams like a toddler for over 20 minutes, gaining the support and allyship of everyone in the vicinity while the Black woman is alone with just her and her camera. Once security arrives with zero urgency, they refuse to see the video evidence of this woman’s behavior, lie in the police report and stall any chances of an investigation taking place."
The woman who was assaulted by Abigail started a GoFundMe and spoke about the incident.
"Help me defend myself against Karen. I am a Black Muslimah Nigerian AM and I was treated like it was 1920 in Short Hills Mall. I was assaulted and harassed by a white woman and nothing was done by security nor the police. I'm looking to hire an excellent attorney who can help me bring light to this wrong. All videos and updates on the situation are on my YouTube channel: Mama Africa Muslimah. I was kicked off a TikTok for posting what happened to me and they let someone else post and get millions and millions of views however they deleted 2 of my accounts of my accounts. One that I have for my Garden which was my original account and another 1 that I created after they deleted my main account. I have been wronged Abigail Elphick (Karen in my videos,) Short Hills Mall security, Millburn Police Department, and most of all humanity. Please help me!"
