A video went viral after a white woman made a huge scene outside of a New York deli, saying a young boy grabbed her from behind. After the incident became racially charged, security footage revealed the truth about what really happened.
The woman later apologized after being confronted with security footage showing the boy had accidentally grazed her.
A video of the incident has been watched more than 5 million times and outraged viewers have dubbed the woman “Cornerstore Caroline,” the latest in a line of nicknames designed to shame people involved in alleged racial profiling incidents.
The video shows young children crying as the woman talks into the cellphone: “I was just sexually assaulted by a child,” she said on the video captured by Jason Littlejohn, who lives nearby the market.
