NYC Hospital ‘Karen’ Paid for Citi Bike at Center of Viral Fight with Black Man

The lawyer for a Manhattan physician’s assistant Sara Jane Comrie, who was accused of taking a Citi Bike from a young black man in a video that has had over 40 million views, provided receipts that he says show she was the one who purchased the ride at the center of the incident. The video that went viral did not show the entire confrontation between Comrie, who is six months pregnant, and the teens who accused her. Comrie was subsequently labeled a ‘Karen’ and was put on leave by her employer, Bellevue Hospital. She has been accused on social media of racism and being biased in her treatment of patients.

Reports indicate that Comrie has gone into hiding after receiving death threats.


From Sportskeeda:

Sarah Jane Comrie’s attorney said that his client was pushed by a group of people, who claimed that the bike that she allegedly paid for belonged to them. The lawyer said the alleged attack supposedly took place off-camera. Her attorney explained on the day Comrie paid for the bike, “which no individuals were on or touching,” and reports that she was stealing the cycle was false. He said:

“Here are the facts: On May 12th my client finished her roughly 12-hour shift and approached the Citi Bike station so she could head home. She went to an available bike, which no individuals were on or touching, mounted it and paid for it via the Citi Bike app on her phone. She then backed it up after it was released from the docking station.”

The Citi bike in question was allegedly released from the docking station but was re-locked after the group of individuals pushed it back, preventing her from leaving.

He added:

“During this time, a group of about five individuals approached her, saying that the bike was theirs. One or more individuals in that group physically pushed her bike (with her on it) back into the docking station, causing it to re-lock. … In short, my client arrived on a vacant bike, mounted the bike, paid for the bike and was prevented from leaving.”

From NY Post:

The lawyer for a Manhattan hospital worker accused of taking a Citi Bike from a young black man — who claimed that he paid for the two-wheeler — provided receipts that he says show she was the one who purchased the ride at the center of the viral incident.

The Bellevue Hospital employee — who was branded a “Karen” on social media afterward — rented the bike first, lawyer Justin Marino said in a statement to The Post Wednesday.

He also provided two Citi Bike receipts from May 12, which were timestamped just minutes apart.

The first receipt reviewed by The Post shows the bike being taken out before it was re-locked one minute later, which Marino said is the bike seen in the video.

The second receipt shows another bike being taken out a minute later from the same docking station and was the bike Marino said his client used to get home after being “heckled and pressured to find a new bike” by the group.

So there has been a outrage over a pregnant women taking a bike from a black youth. Just on the surface what appears wrong with this picture, why wasn’t the wronged black boy simply act as a gentleman and let her have the bike to begin with. What happened to communication as a means to working out difficulties or, was there simply another agenda in action altogether. I am sorry that I am so quick to defend another, who I don’t know at all, over another, who I also do not know at all and in a situation I have… Read more »

I don’t understand why she didn’t ask the guy to show HIS receipt? The whole story does not make any sense.

So some scamster hustler tries to use race to steal from another. Not like that has never happened before. The mob is sick and the rest of us are sick of the race card. No reason someone should receive death threats over a bike. Wake up people.

“Karen” is probably the most idiotic cultural reference in use today. No one has any idea who the first supposed “Karen” was, and it unnecessarily taints all of the lovely ladies out there who were named Karen at birth.

Only empty-headed people without a shred of originality use the term “Karen”. It’s really dumb, makes no reasonable sense, and it needs to be dropped immediately! There are plenty of valid English words to describe this type of personality without using senseless personal names.

Karen Carpenter would have endorsed this message.
