Footage has been shared on social media, showing a “Karen” pulling out a gun on a black mum and her 15-year-old daughter, as they were outside a Chipotle.
On Wednesday night, Takelia Hill claims that a white woman bumped into her daughter as they were about to enter the Chipotle restaurant in Orion Township, Michigan.
Takelia’s daughter Makayla Green told The Detriot News: “Before I could walk into Chipotle, this woman was coming out, and I had moved out the way so she can walk out.
“She bumped me, and I said, ‘Excuse you.’ And then she started cussing me out and saying things like I was invading her personal space.”
As the teenager felt that the situation was stepping into dangerous territory, she called over her mum to help resolve the issue.
Takelioa told the news: “I walked up on the woman yelling at my daughter. She couldn’t see me because her back was to me, but she was in my daughter’s face.”
The video, which has been posted online, shows the encounter in which the woman dubbed a “Karen” allegedly bumped into the teenager.
In response to the woman, Makayla says that she is ignorant and that she was the one who bumped into her. The woman then accuses the two of blocking her from getting into her car.
Suddenly, a man who was at the Chipotle with the white woman comes up to Takelia and her daughter and yells: “Who the f**k do you think you guys are?”
The two sides then start to argue, with Takelia accusing the white couple of being racist. She then asks why the woman wouldn’t apologise, when she was the one who had bumped into her daughter.
The woman then says: “You cannot just walk around calling white people racist … White people aren’t racist … I care about you and I’m sorry if you had an incident that has made someone make you feel like that. No one is racist.”
The couple then attempts to drive off and Makayla tells her mum to “watch”. However, the clip cuts and the mum questions whether or not the car is going to hit her.
Takelia explained to news reporters that she thought the white couple’s car was going to hit into the back of them when backing out of the parking space. Therefore, she hit the back of the car to avoid this from happening.
On the video, viewers then see as the white woman holds out a gun and shouts: “Get the f*** away from me.”
As the woman continues to hold the gun aimed towards them, Makayla and her mum are heard calling the cops.
During this, the sides continue to scream at one another, all whilst “Karen” continues to hold the weapon.
The teenager is heard saying: “These white people, they’re so racist. They pulled a gun out on my mom, both of them.”

Since the incident, Takelia has written on Facebook: “So this is America….I’ve never in my life had a gun pulled out on me let alone two and while I had my three daughters I’ve never felt so helpless in my life I’m so shaken up.”
The day after the incident, the Oakland County Sherrif’s Office commented that both the white couple and the black mum and daughter had called the cops regarding the situation.
The department explained that as the white couple waited for the deputies to arrive, they drove away from the disturbing scene.
The couple has now been charged with felonious assault and their weapons have been taken away.
They have since been taken to custody and the sheriff’s office has stated they will be arraigned “as soon as possible”.
Meanwhile, a Harvard graduate has been fired from her job after she joked on TikTok that she would stab any ‘All Lives Matter’ supporters. The young woman has since blamed Donald Trump supporters for losing her job, as she felt “entirely compromised because Trump supporters have decided to come for [her] life”.
