According to her former employer, a white lady who reportedly threatened to call the cops on a black couple at a Brooklyn dog park while urging them to “stay in [your] hood” has been fired.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Emma Sarley works for the virtual conference software company Bevy, which was recognized by the other dog owner, Frederick Joseph, as the lady recorded in the altercation in McCarren Park in Williamsburg.
“Discriminatory behavior of any kind is not tolerated at @BevyHQ. An employee who acted in a way that went against our principles was fired the day before yesterday. “We sincerely apologize to everyone involved,” CEO Derek Andersen said on Twitter on Sunday.
“I personally hope that beyond this, there can be some sort of resolution between the two parties, and I will assist if I can,” he said.
The guy who was engaged in the fight with Sarley, Joseph, expressed his displeasure with the outcome.
“I’ve been told that Emma Sarley has been let go by @DerekjAndersen and @bevyhq because her racism against me and my fiancé doesn’t align with their values. He said on Twitter, “I hope this is a lesson in accountability and consequences for Emma and others.”
The lady allegedly approached Joseph and his fiancée as they were leaving the dog park on Saturday, according to Joseph.
“I was at the dog park in Brooklyn with my fiancé when this white woman threatened to call the cops and told us to ‘stay in our hood’ because she mistook our dog for another dog that was barking loudly,” Joseph said on Twitter.
He shared a video of the lady attempting to smash his phone and then giving him the finger on Twitter.
“Did you just leave the dog park to tell us that we should stay in our neighborhood?” After that, Joseph could be heard saying.
“Did you just say that to me?” I exclaim. “S–t,” said the lady.
“I’m sorry, you were right here and watched this whole thing,” Joseph said to another guy nearby. Didn’t she just advise us to remain in our neighborhood?”
