Christian Cooper: ‘Stop the Death Threats’ Against #CentralParkKaren / Her ‘Life Shouldn’t Be Torn Apart’ Due to Backlash

Published: Wednesday 27th May 2020 by Rashad

Harvard graduate and former Marvel editor Christian Cooper may prove himself to be a superhero for Amy Cooper – the very woman who called the police to falsely report he had threatened her in Central Park.

The May 25 occurrence was filmed via cell phone by Christian (as we reported here) and, after being shared by his sister to Twitter, received thousands of shares across social media – not only causing a viral sensation but also igniting conversations around racial privilege.

The backlash against Amy was swift, with Twitter branding her #CloseUpKaren and #CentralParkKaren while her employer – Franklin Templeton – terminated her job less than 24 hours after the clip surfaced online (despite her public apology).

Now, just days after the incident, Christian has taken to multiple news outlets to call for a ‘cease fire’ against the ailing Amy.

Details inside:

“If our goal is to change the underlying factors, I am not sure that this young woman having her life completely torn apart serves that goal.” – Christian Cooper said in an interview reported by the New York Times.

The sentiment above was echoed by Christian again once he took to CNN to recount the Central Park event.

“I think her apology is sincere,” Cooper told CNN’s Don Lemon Tuesday night (May 26). “I’m not sure that in that apology she recognizes that while she may not be or consider herself a racist, that particular act was definitely racist.”

Later in the same interview, Christian told Lemon:

“I am told there has been death threats and that is wholly inappropriate and abhorrent and should stop immediately,” the 57-year-old former Marvel editor said. “I find it strange that people who were upset that … that she tried to bring death by cop down on my head, would then turn around and try to put death threats on her head. Where is the logic in that? Where does that make any kind of sense?”

In addition to losing her job, Amy has reportedly been banned from Central Park and also surrendered her dog to a local shelter.

    You don’t think her life should be torn apart?

    You would be singing a different tune had you not had a phone and police did show up while you were there

    She needs to be used as an example and saying she shouldn’t will allow this to continue

    • Justmeeeee May 27, 2020

      I have zero concern for racist white tears
      If she had her way he would likely be dead, hospitalized ir in jail based on her Lie.

      She tried to use her phone as a weapon for his demise BUT he was smart enough to use the same tactic for her demise

      She is just embarrassed
      Mad that she got caught
      Pissed that she got fired
      & deeply hurt that HE outsmarted her

      Racist White Fragility

      * Notice that I did NOT say all white people just the racist ones*

      The white folks protesting the BS out in Minneapolis are proof positive that all whites are not alike. FACTS

      But as for this central park chick
      Adios Punta
      “F” her and EVERY thing she stands for

    Fawk her

    Respectfully I understand his point but no f*** her. Had he not been recording and police showed up it would’ve been a whole different narrative from his factuality. She represents bigots, ignorance and racist that still exist among us. She’s an example and gotta deal with it. We’re in the digital era, can you imagine the horrific things that could’ve captured on video back in the day ? This served its purpose just as the young man jogging to be lynched and the poor man that was kneeled by a cop on his neck. Smh all in one week.

    I don’t wish death to her but he is being a c*** right now. Sorry blk ppl u gotta stop being so scared of these ghetto white thugs. If they do u wrong they deserve the backlash. Stop coming to their rescue they would never do the same for you.

    • Re May 27, 2020

      I know right

    Have her convicted and her record be tarnished. Some people may need to learn the hard way of how it feels to be systematically oppressed.

    White people don’t understand anything but death, destruction and violence that’s the only language they speak. So yes her life should be in ruins…. you are fighting a losing battle if you think they have an ounce of humanity. Black people are not safe and cannot lead a peaceful life aslong as white people are here.

    • Misty+Knight May 27, 2020

      I was r**** by a black man. Violence is all black men understand. Black men will always be the biggest danger to black women. They don’t want to be equal with us. They want to control us, just like white people do. No white man has ever r**** me. A BLACK MAN DID. SO FU.

    He told her if she didn’t leash her dog he was going to “do what I want, but you’re not going to like it”. That’s a threat. He then pulled out dog treats and tried to coax the dog over. For all she knew those treats could have been poisoned.

    I know everyone wants to turn any white on black dispute into a race thing but that’s not what this is. It’s the tale of the two Karen’s.

    • Nicky May 27, 2020


      Clearly you don’t know the law nor do you understand the definition of threat.

      Read a book.

        Thank you! Read a book with your anti prolife aa$$!

    And her apology was not sincere….only thing she really sorry for is that she got caught and out on blast…..otherwise there would be no apology! And Ms Christian need to ask himself why be posted the video….to embarrass her? What was that solving!

    I get he’s trying to set an example of rational intelligence and being the “bigger person” who’s trying to set a civil example to black people of how to behave in the face of overt racism – but – as soon as that video was posted – the internet already played judge jury and executioner and done decided her life was going to be torn down. Should someone decide to murder her we should be aware the tables will be turned and the narrative will become about the ‘cold blooded animalistic black killer’, this will hardly help the case for stamping out racism and just proves the stereotype she was falsely seeking to present as truth to the Police 👮🏿‍♀️

    He’s starting to have a guilty conscience, and it’s because he is now admitting to himself that he threatened her when he told her she wasn’t going to like what he was going to do next. He then attempted to coax her dog over to him. He taunted her plain and simple. What she did next wasn’t okay, but he was in the wrong too. If the roles were reversed, we would be asking why the white man felt the need to tell the black woman to leash her dog.

    • Justmeeeee May 27, 2020

      Your weak attempt to justify her actions are laughable….
      YOU are racist too and THAT is why you are trying to white- splain her obvious BS

      Clearly his intentions was never for her to receive death threats.
      Common sense shows that he recorded this interaction to safeguard himself and highlight her bull.

      If she thought his so called threat was real than why not say just that ???
      Even SHE knows tge deal.

      It is not uncommon for people to tell/ warn owners of unleashed dogs that if the dog violates their personal space that they will be kicked. It is just leverage to encourage them to take the proper action and obey Leash Laws . ESPECIALLY if you are walking your own Leashed dog.

      This is why a lot of elderly people take walks with sticks. Just in case they encounter UNleashed dogs
