White Woman Pretending To Be Disabled Stabs Black People During Minneapolis Protests [VIDEO]
After the death of black man George Floyd, protests broke out in Minneapolis, Minnesota as a call for justice. People began looting stores and rioting due to their anger about the racism endured by the black community. But one woman was viciously attacking black people during the riots and tried to get off easy.
“Jennifer” Was Only Stabbing Black People During Protests
If you take one look at the woman whom the internet deemed as “Jennifer” you would assume that she is an elderly disabled woman. She is sitting in a motorized wheelchair and has grey hair and appeared during the protests for Floyd that turned into a fiery chaos. According to videos posted by the people who attended these protests, Jennifer blocked the door of a local Minneapolis Target while people were leaving with items that they looted. Knife in her hand, she specifically only began stabbing black people as they tried to leave the store. This demonstrated an act of racism during a time where the black community is already ailing from the losses of some unlawful racialized killings.
Videos on Twitter showed Jennifer essentially barricading the doors of Target as people tried to wheel their carts full of stuff outside. At one point, people decided to physically move her and her entire wheelchair out of the way of the looters.
The Woman Was Pretending To Be Disabled And People Faught Back
People were not going to let this woman participate in a racially charged crime and get away with it. Just as she tried to stop another person from coming out of the Target fire exit, someone screamed “she has a knife.” This prompted a white man with a fire extinguisher to point it at the woman’s face and release the white chemicals. Someone posted a video of Jennifer essentially getting blasted in the face as she just sat there in her chair. After this, she continued to block the door and was covered in grey dust and smoke. The man recording the incident asked “Jennifer is there anything I could do for you?” while another screamed, “Jennifer is that enough?”
A video from later that night shows Jennifer getting up out of the motorized chair and getting in the faces of some black people. You can literally see her walking around freely before she goes to sit back in the chair. This has led people to believe that she is only pretending to be this disabled helpless woman during a time where people are fighting for justice for real-world issues.
Another video later captured her helpless act as she sat in the middle of a chaotic street. She claimed that she was peacefully protesting and that the looters from Target attacked her. The woman whined about getting punched in the head several times along with getting her stuff stolen and maced in the face. Meanwhile, throughout the whole video, there is a man standing next to her calling her routine “bullsh*t.” He attests that she was sitting and blocking people from coming out of Target and stabbing them.
Why Is #GypsyRose Trending On Twitter?
People could not help but point out that the actions of this woman seem eerily similar to that of Gypsy Rose Blanchard. Gypsy Rose is notoriously known for faking illnesses and health issues due to the beliefs of her mother Dee Dee. She was wheelchair-bound and thought she was suffering from illnesses that physicians later confirmed she did not even have. Gypsy Rose later murdered Dee Dee in cold blood in one of the most well-known Munchausen by proxy cases of all time. The story was later told in the Hulu series The Act starring Joey King and Patricia Arquette. People are comparing Gypsy’s fake illness to Jennifer faking being in a wheelchair.
One Twitter user said “Gypsy Rose is 30, not elderly. She CAN walk, and she walked over to stab someone. She ALSO brought a f*cking KNIFE to STAB MEMBERS OF BLM.” He continued to say that “She let white people walk by so she could specifically STAB black people.” The wheelchair was obviously used in the attempt to appear “helpless.”
Jennifer, a white woman pretending to be a victim in this situation has barred no sympathy from those who are fighting for justice. Stabbing only black people brought more causes of concern of racism present in Minneapolis and the need for reform and justice.
She has yet to be arrested for the stabbing, however, people on Twitter agree that her attempt to take black lives during the Minneapolis protests cannot go unnoticed.
