Alison Ettel, the white woman who went viral for calling the police on an 8-year-old black girl for “illegally” selling bottled water, says she now regrets her “stupid” actions.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Alison, who is the CEO of a California company that produces medical marijuana products for people and dogs, says she now feels discriminated against after the Social Media Task Force swooped down on her, exposed her and caused her to lose business deals.
Some went as far as threatening her life (which I don’t condone).
Permit Patty says she wants to support the little girl and only “pretended” to call the police because they were making too much noise and she was sick of the girl’s mother.
She also blamed her poor decision of being stressed out. Oh, okay.
I have no problem with enterprising young women. I want to support that little girl. It was all the mother and just about being quiet.
I had been putting up with this for hours, and I just snapped. It was stupid. I completely regret that I handled that so poorly. It was completely stress-related, and I should have never confronted her. That was a mistake, a complete mistake.
They were screaming about what they were selling.
It was literally nonstop. It was every two seconds, ‘Come and buy my water.’ It was continuous and it wasn’t a soft voice, it was screaming.
Watch the clip below that put Alison Ettel on the Racist Summer Jam screen.
Since the video went viral, Alison has deleted her social media pages.
She’s also been booted from the Lady Buds documentary.
The good news is a musician named Jonathon Brannon saw the viral video and purchased four tickets for the little girl to go to Disney.
