In a statement to CNN, Amy Cooper said that she wants to “publicly apologize to everyone,” after she weaponized the police against a Black man who asked her to leash her dog in Central Park.
Christian Cooper, no relation to Amy, was out bird-watching in an area of the park called “The Ramble.”
“There’s a man, an African American, he’s recording and threatening me and my dog,” she says deliriously.
“There is an African American man in Central Park.
Asked if he’d accept her apology, Christian Cooper told CNN he would “if it’s genuine and if she plans on keeping her dog on a leash in The Ramble going forward, then we have no issues with each other.”
