There are far too many Karen incidents happening in real life –– many of which end up on tape and on the web.

In a recently captured now-viral video, a white couple is seen physically attacking a Black man after Hilton hotel employees helped him first. The video, which has now been viewed more than 819,000 times on Twitter, begins with a tense situation where the couple is arguing with staff while the Black man –– who was helped first because he’s a Diamond Member with the hotel –– waits at the desk.

The couple is arguing with staff who are positioned between the Karen duo and the Black man while the person filming the whole thing narrates.

Y’all haven’t de-escalated the situation because she’s still right there, still talking,” the person filming can be heard saying. “Y’all supposed to separate the two parties.”

Within seconds, the white woman pushes her way through staff and security before slapping her hands around the Black man’s neck. The Black man reacts, going after the white man, punching him while the white woman continues to grab at the Black man.

“This is all on camera,” the person filming says. “She touched him… everything is on camera” the person repeats.

 

After the physical commotion, the woman continues to yell before breaking through staff members once again in yet another attempt to get to the Black man.

Onlookers repeatedly ask staff why they haven’t done anything to de-escalate the situation and letting the two parties still be in close proximity to one another. A staff member finally escorts the Black man away from the scene before the woman tries to break away again.

“Don’t come over here,” the person filming says.

A person claiming to be the Black man scene in the video replied to a post asking for a copy after he says the couple lied to the police about what happened.

“The couple had the police waiting outside looking for me for hours,” Twitter user @slyfoxnyc wrote. “I couldn’t stay at the hotel that night because they lied saying I attacked them.”

Can you please send the video to me so I can send to Hilton headquarters, because of this security failure the couple had the police waiting outside looking for me for hours I couldn’t stay at the hotel that night because they lied saying I attacked them. Thanks for recording🙏🏾
