UPDATE: #CornerstoreCaroline Calls the Cops on a 9-Year-Old Black Boy for Allegedly Groping Her in a Bodega: Viral Video

UPDATE 10/12/2018: In proper Twitter fashion, amateur sleuths came out of the woodwork to ensure that the world would know the real person behind this atrocious act. Meet Teresa Sue Klein aka #CornerstoreCaroline. And apparently Teresa does have ties to the police. However, she was on the wrong end of the law and not an actual police officer. The gluteal-challenged woman has a criminal record and may even be a sex offender. Shame on her.


In a bodega in New York City, a white woman calls the police on a 9-year-old Black boy for allegedly grabbing her backside.

A viral video of the aftermath, uploaded by Jason Stovetop Littlejohn, appeared to rightfully outrage the people in the area, including the mother of the child. The video has gotten more than 1 million views on Facebook. It has also been shared almost 30,000 times at this moment.

It hasn’t been confirmed if the little boy actually “groped her,” or if he merely bumped into her in the cramped bodega. However, what is known is the woman called police instead of talking about the situation with the boy’s mother.

Although it is doubtful, the woman claims to be a police officer in the video as citizens — Black and white — called her out. She sarcastically mocks the person filming the video by exclaiming: “World Star!”

When she stated her intentions to call the police, the little boy became visibly upset and begins to cry. Even at the tender age of nine, he is well aware of the ramifications of a white woman calling the police on him. It’s unknown if the police actually showed up, but she listed her full address and phone number in the video.

Her haughtiness is reminiscent of the numerous white women who’ve lied on Black men and boys with reference to sex. Emmett Till was murdered by a gang of white men in 1955 for allegedly whistling at Carolyn Bryant. She lived damn near her entire adult life with a lie that facilitated the murder of a Black boy.

It begs the question: Is #CornerstoreCaroline telling the truth or is this just another despicable moment in white women’s history
