'Lawyer Karen' loses her mind at TikToker for filming lawn argument, video goes viral
TikTok videos suggest that the feud stemmed from a social media argument and a Black Lives Matter sign on the guy's lawn
A video posted on Reddit went viral after it captured a "Lawyer Karen" approaching a man's property and becoming enraged because she's being recorded by him. They reportedly confronted each other on the grounds of a church.
TikTok videos suggest that the feud stemmed from a social media argument and a Black Lives Matter sign on the guy's lawn. The footage was posted on Reddit's popular r/PublicFreakout page by u/sadboylogan. However, the original video is from Dave Timpanaro's TikTok page, where he goes by the handle @d_a_t_201. The unusual scene went viral as there was no context as to why the woman, wearing a Virginia Law sweatshirt, was having a meltdown. However, the details become evident in the comments section.
The video shows the woman walking up to Dave, who was filming the video, and asking “You want a call from my lawyers, Dave?” The original TikTok video garnered a whopping 1.5 million views after it was shared earlier this week.
“As you come on my property?” he responds.
“I didn’t—I sat in my car; you’re videotaping me,” she continues. “Would you like a phone call from my lawyer?”
“Thank you, Eliza, for coming by," Dave says while pointing the phone toward an Acura SUV. "I told you once, leave me alone, don’t come near my home or it’s considered harassment. And here you are. Darcy, thank you for coming by.”
Darcy appears to be the woman in the sweatshirt, accompanied by Eliza, an older woman. Dave explained in TikTok comments that the duo showed up at his property and took photos "to show a police candidate’s sign.” He also "liked" a comment claiming they placed a board of education sign on his yard without consent. The video shows the woman claiming she's calling the police on the TikToker despite him walking away. It appears they are on the grounds of a church in Randolph, New Jersey, adjacent to his home, according to the Daily Dot.
Dave posted a second video focusing on Eliza, with whom he shared some telling exchanges as well. “Come take your sign off my property,” Dave tells Eliza in the clip. “I knew you did it.” They go on to argue about a social media post by Timpanaro that allegedly did not sit well with Eliza. Dave was reportedly convinced the two women were coming to harass him at his house nearby. Taking to TikTok, he explained that he approached the women because they were harassing him and have purportedly harassed his family before. “You came over here with the intention of harassing me!” he yells at them.
Dave posted a third video explaining that he got a “call from the police” noting Darcy had tried to claim “sexual harassment” in an attempt to have his "livelihood taken away.”
Redditors responded to the viral video by mocking Darcy's choice of clothes. “If she’s deliberately wearing that out in public, I’d argue she’s potentially exposing herself," one wrote. “He was honestly being a gentleman for not mentioning her shorts. So many people would’ve roasted her, a comment read. “Actually she should get a fine for indecent exposure,” another added.
