Store 'Karen' accuses Black man of stealing her smartphone, finds it in her purse
A video of a lady accusing a Black guy of "stealing" her smartphone at a Spencer's has gone viral. The woman gives her phone information to the store clerk so he may contact her number in an attempt to locate her phone in the video, which was shot by the falsely accused Black guy. "Karen truly pulled this at a Spencer's. r@cism alive and well," read the text overlay in the video.
The woman informs the staffer, "Well, he could've turned off the ringer," referring to the Black man. "Oh, my god! What do you want me to get f-cking naked, lady?" The 'Karen' is yelled at by the woman accompanying the black man, causing the staff to implore everyone to stay calm. "I really need my phone back," the woman pleads as she searches her purse again. After that, the black man empties his pockets and offers to be patted down to prove that he did not take the woman's phone. The staffer requests the woman's phone number once more, but the unidentified lady then claims the Black guy must have turned off her phone.

"You walked up behind me and grabbed it," she says in the video. The woman alleges she had kept her phone in her tote's front pocket and that the black man was following her. "I just slipped it right here," the woman says, "and you stepped right behind me and stole it.” But when the woman dialed her own number on an employee's phone, it began to ring. The gadget, it turned out, had been in her handbag the entire time.
She accused a Black man of stealing her phone. Her racist ass knows damn well she saw the phone in her purse at the beginning of the video. pic.twitter.com/vSX2Mk2QRE— chris evans (@chris_notcapn) December 7, 2021
"Does it happen to be in your purse, ma'am?" enquires someone not on camera. "It is, I'm sorry," the 'Karen' responds before apologising to the couple many times. The video has almost 40,000 views and hundreds of comments from people who not only chastised the lady for her "racist" actions but also pointed out that 'Karen' must have seen her phone in her purse before but simply kept pretending that she hadn't found it.
Notice how when the cashier offers to call her phone she stopped in the middle of giving her the number and says “WELL he could’ve turned off the ringer”— not that hot girl meg (@margarita_wine) December 7, 2021
"She accused a Black man of stealing her phone. Her racist ass knows damn well she saw the phone in her purse at the beginning of the video," one Twitter user remarked. "Notice how when the cashier offers to call her phone she stopped in the middle of giving her the number and says, 'WELL he could've turned off the ringer,'" another user added. "She knew the WHOLE time. That's why she didn't want to give the number," remarked a third. "She wasn't even trying to look. She was so sure he had taken it which says a lot considering it was right on top. She wanted her accusation to be true more than she wanted her phone," read yet another tweet.
