AceShowbiz - Terrell Owens wants justice after an alleged racist accusation by his neighbor. On Wednesday night, August 3, the professional football player got involved in a dispute with a woman who accused him of speeding. While the matter was eventually settled without charges, he wants more than that.
Terrell made use of his Instagram account to vent his frustration over the matter. In a video he posted online, he started filming after police arrived. He shared his side of the story to the officer, saying he was driving to his mail box when the woman told him to slow down.
The woman claimed he was speeding and almost ran over her, which he denied. The woman said he then rolled down his window and started to harass her. "First of all, I didn't harass you," he responded. "I didn't almost hit you, now you're just making up stuff, just like a Karen."
"But you didn't have to get out of your f**king car!" she yelled. "You didn't have to talk to me like that!" Terrell responded. "You're a Black man approaching a white woman!" the woman shouted back, before she started crying.
"There she's crying. There's Karen; this is unbelievable," Terrell mused. "I've never been part of nothing like this. I've seen it, but this is first-hand. Before they got here, it was 'f**k you this, f**k you that.' The police show up, the tears start flowing."
The former NFL star said the woman's husband tried to tell her to go into the house but she refused, with Terrell accusing her of wanting to do "the whole Karen thing." He added to her, "You need to stop that."
That's when another female neighbor defended Terrell, saying he was not speeding. "He was not, I was in the garage," the woman was heard saying off camera. "You're lying, because I was in the garage."
Terrell captioned the video, "KAREN IS REAL!!!! Wow!! JUST A NORMAL NIGHT OF BEING A BLACK MAN IN AMERICA. I want to say I can't believe it but y'all know what it is."
The Broward County Sheriff's Office told TMZ, "The parties were separated, and the situation resolved." Neither Terrell nor the neighbor appears to be charged in the incident, but he hasn't got over it just yet.
In a follow-up post, Terrell outed the "Karen" neighbor. "Regarding the incident that took place last night…Here she is, a real life and our neighborhood Karen: her name is Caitlyn Davis," he wrote along with the woman's picture.
He then asked his followers to "PLEASE SIGN PETITION IN MY BIO THIS IS FOR THOSE LIKE EMMITT TILL WHO WAS BRUTALLY MURDERED AND DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO LIVE TO SPEAK THEIR TRUTHS BECAUSE OF FALSE ACCUSATIONS." The online petition, filed by Alexis Kirschner and addressed to Florida District Attorney Ashley Moody, seeks "Jail Time For Woman Reporting False Racist Police Report." So far, the petition has reached more than 3,000 signatures out of its 5,000 goal.
