Man Who Shared ‘Central Park Karen’ Video Won’t Cooperate With Prosecutors


The black man who shared the now-infamous ‘Central Park Karen’ video is now standing up for the woman who called the cops on him. In the video, Chris Cooper confronts a woman about leashing her dog, and she threatens to call police and “tell them that an African American is threatening my life”.   The woman, Amy Cooper (no relation), was fired from her job, lost custody of the dog, and is now facing charges for filing a false report. But Chris Cooper says he has no interest in helping the prosecution, saying “she’s already paid a steep price” and that “bringing her more misery just seems like piling on”. Does social media make it easy to ‘pile on’ in situations like this?  Is Cooper taking the high road by not taking part in the prosecution?
