White woman who called 911 on Black bird-watcher in NYC loses lawsuit against ex-employer

A white woman who called 911 and falsely accused a Black bird-watcher of threatening her in New York City's Central Park in a 2020 incident that went viral has lost a lawsuit accusing her former employer of illegally firing her and making her out to be a racist.

U.S. District Judge Ronnie Abrams on Wednesday rejected Amy Cooper's claims that her former employer, investment management company Franklin Templeton, defamed her when it repeatedly said the firm did not tolerate racism.

Abrams further said Amy Cooper had failed to prove that she was fired due to her race or gender and without the kind of investigation that had once been conducted on allegations of another employee's misconduct.

Amy Cooper lost her job after a video was shared on social media showing her calling 911 on bird-watcher Christian Cooper and telling police that an "African American man" had threatened her life and the life of her dog.

Ha. Haha. Hahaha. Etc. Ad infinitum. (Yeah, I know it's not nice to laugh at someone's misfortune, but she had it coming.)

2. instead of learning from her destructive actions, Ms. Cooper doubles down

giving prospective employers even less reason to hire her

31. Exactly! If she had exhibited the least little bit of contrition she would be much better off

than this.

I'll never forget this one because of the way she was hanging her dog with its leash during her theatrical performance.

32. overall, people can be quite forgiving and willing to give second chances

but these racist assholes too often seem incapable of self-reflection, which makes change a very remote possibility indeed

6. She should be using this time of record unemployment to find another job

while employers may be desperate enough to hire her pathetic ass, rather than doubling down on her white privilege to make the cash register ring.

She made herself out to be a racist.

9. Oh, bother! - as Pooh says.

They just never get it do they!?

She was WRONG! She should have apologized.

Now she lost family, friends, her job, the cost for lawyers, and anything else that went bad for her.

She needs to be figuratively slapped upside the head.

And court costs?

22. I would hope so, though the article doesn't say so. All I could glean was that she did indeed

have legal representation. Probably one of TFG’s lawyers who is representing I’m on stolen secret documents. Both cases obvious losers from the start 😬

20. An author who collects these injustice stories says in a black-oriented journal,

Whether it’s a Karen calling police on a Black pastor for watering flowers, or SoHo Karen calling police on a Black 14-year-old for “stealing” a phone she lost, their power has not only lessened, but the backlash to their racially charged accusations are now met with an overwhelming and unified rejection.

She sued her employer. No remorse there. Stay away. She learned nothing. Go pound sand.
