    honestly, this is completely not news worthy

  2. perfectsnake69 on January 13, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Wait a minute, Puerto Rican’s consider themselves black, and then blacker people call it racist

  3. wizzleuno on January 13, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    Give her the chair

  4. staboogie031 on January 13, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    I’d be embarrassed AF if that were my child 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️💯

  5. Mz Kegz on January 13, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    I just want to see her get humbled bc she is full of arrogance and no accountability.

  6. Horse & Oak on January 13, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    But Kenyons mother is white

  7. Stealing on January 13, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    I was waiting for this

  8. YorkshireBiker on January 13, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    The woman is obviously crazy nothing to do with him being black. Stop with the BLM Bullshit trying to play the victim all the time it’s pathetic

  9. Jose Jimenez on January 13, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    CHARGE HER CHARGE HER

  10. TheCursedMessiah on January 13, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    This is so stupid. People get framed all the time. But of course since it was a black person they get a whole ass snowflake story lol

  11. Anthony Coletti on January 13, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    If I was his father I would be extremely upset……extremely upset that my 14yo son was able to be tackled by this small 22yo woman. Jr should start hitting the gym and stop playing video games.

  12. Claudia mariani on January 13, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    “Son unfortunately it’s because your black” you can’t prove that it was because he is black, because she never said anything about him being black. The fact that she is instilling that in his brain could be cause for even more trauma than needed, .Now they had an entire vigil outside as if the kid had died. The girl was excessive, and now unfortunately the victim and his family are being excessive. Charge her and keep it moving .

  13. Rusty Shackleford on January 13, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Here they are once again, using a debatably racist issue to distract people from real news.

  14. Rubertha Blackman on January 13, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    A spoilt brat and her enabler messy mother will kill someone one day. Then pay a lawyer to say she has affluenza

  15. Chris K on January 13, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    She will get a reality show soon. In her mind, she believes that’s a given.

  16. MoniBuni on January 13, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Poor kid you can just tell he’s traumatized by the whole thing. She needs to get charged. This whole case is clear as can be I hope this family gets the justice they deserve.

  17. YoCyber on January 13, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Sad part is, her family is probably rich so she’ll most likely not face any serious consequences

  18. TheInfectiousCadaver on January 13, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    i blame the mother whole heartedly. this type of shit is learned through years of "your not wrong sweetie, the world is". fucking disgusting. do the right fucking thing, and charge BOTH the mother and the daughter.

  19. R L on January 13, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    why didn’t they just call the phone see if it rings.

  20. Liquidforce242 on January 13, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    She Stupid, REAL CRASH Dummy

  21. Cindy Adame-Rivera on January 13, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    So she’s 22 and Puerto Rican, what does that mean? She need to grow up!!… what she did is completely wrong and I hope she pays for it too thats why she is walking around like she is happy dandy. She feels untouched, I hope his parents don’t let it go till they get justice.

  22. Jessi B. on January 13, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    She didn’t just attack someone she assaulted a minor. I’m confused as to why she isn’t in jail?

  23. Ethem Kisaboyun on January 13, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Why does she keep emphasising she’s 22 and what does being Puerto Rican have to do with anything? This woman needs to get her head examined.

  24. Wan on January 13, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    Stop letting your daughters get spoiled

  25. Elian Mercado on January 13, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    SOCIETY I hate SOCIETY

  26. IP Freely on January 13, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    This bitch is done love it! I hope she go to jail for two years!

  27. MLG on January 13, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    "tracked down" ?????
    She was staying at the hotel. Getting her name and address can not have been s hard.
    the only way this took any time is if you were not intending to do anything about this.

  28. Francis on January 13, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    she is so lucky this boy’s mom wasn’t around then, she would have torn her to bits….

  29. Iva Bigbotty on January 13, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    I’d like to see videos of women running around in their underwear and high heels tickling each other.

  30. EskiLdn on January 13, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    They should make a new conviction called "racial justice" any kind of crime that happens to a black person, regardless of reason or context should get charged under "racial justice"

    And get min 5 years.

  31. K Jana'e on January 13, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    I hope they take this all the way!! Literally attacked a child.

  32. Cool Guy on January 13, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Puerto Rican women, the best kind of crazy

  33. carter Nelson on January 13, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Racist??? The media really sucks, they will try to ruin anyone that makes a mistake

  34. Save Good Music on January 13, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    I really felt sorry for that kid but what is wrong with the parents, do they need the attention as if this was a big crime? A crazy entitled girl was racist and now you people want to start another war? My point is that this isn‘t a big story, the parents are traumatized? By what? Nobody was really scared nobody was really hurt. That women should go to jail asap tho, no disagree.

  35. Salt on January 13, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    sugar daddy needs to get his out of control sugar baby

    dumb b….

  36. just have fun on January 13, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    people used to die and be ok with it . tackle someone nowadays and he is scarred beyond redemption for life

  37. Liquidforce242 on January 13, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    From Coast to Coast to Take A Phone

  38. Dani Getpaid23 on January 13, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    I’ve seen this girl so many times at this point. I think they’re gonna give her own reality show.

  39. jose hernandez on January 14, 2021 at 12:02 am

    "I’m only 22"
    BITCH! YOU’RE A FUCKING ADULT! take your fucking actions like one! piece of shit….

  40. Rusty Shackleford on January 14, 2021 at 12:03 am

    "it might be because you’re black" It might also be because he was the only teenager around, I would assume a teenager stole my phone too, but there is no way I would attack anyone. Why does it always get racist? Just because something happens to a black person doesn’t mean it happened because he was black. That being said, stealing a phone, especially an iphone is completely useless. If it has a codelock you’ll never get in to it, even the fbi has trouble with that. Something happens to a black person, and the family pushes it like the kid was rejected from school for being black.

  42. sgtslaughter21 on January 14, 2021 at 12:04 am

    So the Hotel manager gets off scott free huh???

  43. John Guiseppa on January 14, 2021 at 12:04 am

    She probably has shitty parents that never said no.

  44. kudos on January 14, 2021 at 12:11 am

    2:00 Umm yeah so just because you’re of an ethnicity other than White or the Jewish community doesn’t mean that you still can’t be a racist!

  45. Ziggy Flame on January 14, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Lol she’s 22 and the boy is 14, huge age difference😂 it’s dumb that she keeps saying that she’s Puerto Rican so she can’t be racist, when in fact anyone can be racist. Thank God the kids dad was there to protect him from Karen. So dumb, even though her phone wasn’t stolen, she could’ve just bought a new phone since she’s so spoiled 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

  46. Rusty Shackleford on January 14, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Here they are once again, using a debatably racist issue to distract people from real news.

  47. abcwarrior91 on January 14, 2021 at 12:15 am

    black people crying again lol

  48. Tomaya on January 14, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Puerto Rican my ass… maybe her great grandmother. De puertorriqueña no tiene nada.

  49. NSA Watchlist Bait on January 14, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Its funny how they need the police now

  50. Eddie Vasquez on January 14, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Dude this lady is clearly crazy and thought that this guy stole her phone. Just tell her she’s wrong and call the cops yourself. My goodness it’s not because you’re black.
