Black Twitter Hilariously Meme'd The White Woman Who Called The Cops On A Black Family For BBQing

"You played yourself, and now you're a meme."

Published May 14th

The white woman who called the police on an Oakland family for grilling in a designated BBQ zone may not have been formally punished for calling police for a non-emergency, but she was reprimanded in a far worse and everlasting way by Black Twitter.

She was meme'd.

The woman was first videotaped by a different white woman who noticed her racially profiling a Black man who was operating a charcoal grill. The video went viral and the woman was slammed for going through great pains to try to get police to arrest the man. 

In the end, the woman victimized herself and hysterically cried to the officers that she was harassed. 

While no citations or arrests were made, the woman became a social media figure of representation of white people calling police on Black people. 

  1. Black Twitter did not come to play when it came to the use of the meme
  2. The image of the woman calling the police was superimposed onto several iconic images of Black figures
  3. Wherever there is a Black person trying to persist and thrive, she'll be there
  4. Now everyone thinking of making unnecessary calls to police should remember that it may result in their indefinite placement on the Internet
