The white woman who was caught on camera telling a Black couple to “stay in your own hood” was reportedly fired from her position.

A couple with their dog were at a Brooklyn dog park with author Frederick Joseph and his fiancee, Porsche Landon, on Saturday night (Sept. 25). In response to the dog’s barking, Emma Sarley began yelling at the couple. She mistakenly thought their dog was another dog that was barking loudly. “She says, ‘You don’t live here. You might as well go home. Just stay where you are. Go home,” Joseph told the publication. Therefore, I am as follows: ‘Stay in my hood?’ Yeah, right? She replied, “I’m not racist.” “You’re being racist right now, aren’t you?”.

Joseph was also given the finger by Sarley who attempted to leave his phone in his hand. During part of the encounter he did not record the woman’s response, while trying to explain to her that her dog had been confused with his.

Joseph tried to explain, saying, “I think your dog is the wrong one, but then she just gets off on a tangent completely out of left field,” he said. Upon seeing that, I was thinking, “Look what you’re doing is so offensive, so racist, and I wanted to put this on camera so there are no misperceptions about what went on.”

Joseph’s video on Twitter created a backlash and several users called Sarley “Dog Park Karen.” Because of the video, Sarley apparently lost her job. CEO Derek Anderson apologized to Joseph and the fiancée for terminating her employment. “We will not tolerate discrimination of any kind at BevyHQ,” he tweeted. We have terminated the employment of an employee who acted in a manner inconsistent with our values yesterday. Sincere apologies to all involved.”
