A woman named Rayne Burse is being hailed as a hero on social media after a video of her standing up for herself when an older white woman harassed her while she was walking her dog on public property went viral.
The video begins with Burse asking the unidentified woman if she had done anything wrong, to which the woman replies, "You're part of South Miami." Burse continues to say that if she is not trespassing, then the woman is simply harassing her. When the woman pushes Burse, Burse pushes back. Her dog, Mojito, is seen on camera for one moment, spurring Burse to confidently say, "Move Mojito," which has now turned into a viral hashtag.
After Burse pushes back, she tells the woman to stay back and that she has the whole interaction on camera. The video then cuts to show the older white woman being handcuffed by police officers.
People are celebrating the poetic justice that #MoveMojito now represents.
Baby, Mojito was trying to throw them hands, too. #MoveMojito— cp (@cultA_KlAsh) July 5, 2016
Hopefully we get more background to this story now that the hashtag and story are viral. We might have the newest internet hero on our hands.
