Central Park Karen Fired By Manhattan Investment Firm

NPR reports:

A black man says he asked a white woman in Central Park to put her dog on a leash. Then, video shows her calling police and telling emergency operators that the man was threatening her and her dog. The woman, who has been identified as Amy Cooper, has apologized.

“It was unacceptable. And you know words are just words and I can’t undo what I did. But I sincerely and humbly apologize to everyone. Especially to that man, his family,” Amy Cooper said in an interview with NBC New York on Monday evening.

But by Tuesday afternoon she was fired from her job at an investment management firm. The Ramble is a wooded area of Central Park where dogs are required to be leashed.
