Watch the video: Who is Karen, the D.C. woman who made racist remarks about an Uber driver?

After a video emerged of a Washington, D.C., woman racially insulting her black Uber driver Wednesday morning, the woman was described as “Karen.” Let’s see who Karen is, the DC woman who made racist remarks about an Uber driver.

Who is the capital woman Karen?

The internet has gone up in flames after a video of an American woman racially insulting her Uber driver went viral on social media. Before using the racial epithet, the woman is seen in the video screaming abuse at a black man who appears to be her Uber driver on a sidewalk in Cathedral Heights, Washington, DC.

The two are seen fighting in the video, which was taken by a woman from the building next to the sidewalk, while the car was parked on the side of the road with its door open.

Police investigations

The driver and passenger remained unknown. Meanwhile, the Metropolitan Police are investigating the incident, with the passenger repeatedly describing the driver as a “slave” and a “no ****”.

In a statement released on Wednesday, Uber claimed that it was “in contact with the driver” and that it had “blocked the rider’s account from the app.”

When the bystander’s video was retweeted on Twitter Wednesday by a D.C. area community news account, it quickly attracted national notice and garnered more than 2 million views.

At one point in the video, when she is seen pushing the driver, the woman is heard shouting, “I’m your fucking boss.” “N****r, you little piece of s**t.”

Banned from the ride-sharing app

The woman was later banned from the ride-sharing app after the expletive-laden interaction was caught on camera by a bystander and went viral.

The tape begins with an SUV parked on the street below with the rear passenger door open. Taken from inside a building overlooking the interaction.

Two bickering can be seen on the sidewalk just outside the car. The woman’s tone throughout the argument comes across as distinctly combative and condescending.

The reason for the quarrel

The confrontation appears to have just begun when the video begins. The woman can be heard telling the man to “take his medicine” and referring to him as “crazy”.

“Your boss is me. I’m your boss. Your boss is me,” she yells over and over before yelling racial epithets at him and trying to flee.

She then calls the driver “slave” after several more iterations of the slur while the man reacts. The woman who was filming the incident can be heard questioning the racial outburst and gasping.

More than 2.8 million people watched the video on Twitter, most of whom demanded the woman’s arrest and others tried to identify her.

Although the cause of the quarrel was not immediately clear, the exchange of insults between the two indicates that the explosion was caused by a request to use the driver’s phone charger. The white woman in the clip begins to grumble after it appears she hasn’t gotten her way.

Uber posted a response statement:

Uber responded to the clip, saying it was looking for more information on the driver to investigate the incident. “Behavior like this is never good. We have a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination. If you have more information about an Uber rider or driver, please send us a direct message so we can investigate,” the tweet read.

According to WTOP-FM/AM correspondent Megan Cloherty, the D.C. Police are checking to see if a man they identify as an Uber driver has filed a report because they know about the incident but can’t open an investigation until the driver does. A complaint cannot be considered without a complaint.

The identity of the driver or passenger has not been announced. Once the investigation is over and we have enough information regarding this case, we will update this page. Check back for more details.
