"Cornerstore Caroline" Apologizes For Accusing Black Boy Of Sexual Assault

Meanwhile, Klein returned to the bodega Friday and watched the surveillance video from inside the store.

The video itself went viral shortly after it was posted with over 6 million views as of Friday evening.

Teresa Klein told police that the boy "grabbed" her "a-s" at a Sahara Deli Market in Brooklyn, Pix11 reported. "I was sexually assaulted", said Klein.

Speaking to the local media outlet, Klein still claims that she was sexually assaulted despite surveillance video that was released which does not appear to support her claims.

The man who filmed the "Cornerstore Caroline" video last week in Brooklyn is not buying the white woman's apology.

Ms Klein has since apologised to the young boy, via a television report according to the New York Times.

"He was so traumatised by the situation, he started crying, his sister started crying".

And now the NYPD has arrived to the woman's - who the internet has dubbed #cornerstorecaroline - home after she claimed me and another reporter were harassing her and threatening her with violence.

Though Klein told Fox5NY that she's not racist and phoned police because she believed the boy's mother was being aggressive, her 911 call was the latest in a series of instances where white people have called police on black people for seemingly innocuous behaviour, raising concerns of racial bias.

"Her son grabbed my a-", she continues on the phone call.

"White Woman calls police on a kid, saying he sexually assaulted her", he wrote. "I understand how it looks but [the boy's mother] escalated it and then I lost my temper at her, not at that child".

Klein told the police that she knew there were security tapes and she would be "more than happy to submit the security tapes for evidence". "It's not the first time I've been grabbed in the a** by a kid", claimed Klein.

Teresa seems shockingly determined to use the police as her personal butlers-but more on that later.

He also added that although some people believed Theresa was bluffing, "she actually did call 911" and that police responded 17 minutes later.

"While I do not know the nine year boy personally, I can not go to sleep tonight without doing something for him", said Michael Skolnik who launched the campaign.

Ms Klein joins Permit Patty and Barbecue Becky, two other white women who gained notoriety on social media for calling the police on African-Americans for seemingly insignificant reasons.
