‘Karen’ attacks black man at Hilton after he gets first service

Viral footage shows a white woman assaulting a Black man at the Hilton Hotel in Rio de Janeiro on New Year’s Day. The conflict is said to have occurred after hotel staff served the man, who was a Diamond member, before the woman and her partner.

The video was shared to Twitter by the user @monty_sexton, who passed King on the platform. The video has received more than 800,000 views as of Wednesday.

On Monday, King said he has not received a response from Hilton after writing to them to report the incident.

Twitter users @slyfoxnyc, who passed by HL on the platform, responded to King’s tweet, identifying himself as the man attacked in the video.

“Can you please send me the video so that I can send it to Hilton headquarters, because of this security incident the couple kept the police waiting outside looking for me for hours. I couldn’t stay at the hotel that night because they lied that I attacked. surname. Thanks for the recording,” HL tweeted at King on January 2.

Footage shows HL standing next to the front desk, separated from the white couple by four people who appear to be hotel security guards.

“You haven’t escalated the situation yet because she’s still there talking,” King can be heard saying, referring to the white woman. “You all have to split up.”

After a while of shouting and confusing arguments, the white woman separated from the staff member and attacked HL, grabbing his head with her hands and pulling him out of the front desk. He can be seen trying to break free from her grip, then he punches the white man. The man in white fell to the ground as if he had been beaten and fainted.

Security officers then tried to subdue the white woman. Meanwhile, King can be heard repeatedly calling out that “everything is on camera.” In the video, HL describes the pair as “drunk” and “rude”.

Efforts by security officers to subdue the white woman appeared to be fruitless, and she re-framed the video, breaking free from the guards’ encirclement. She approached her partner, who was still lying on the floor. She then yanked her purse and walked over to HL, who was still standing by the front desk.

The white woman tried to attack HL again, but the security guard pulled her away. Another employee led HL away. HL shook his head and said nothing as he walked away, but King asked why the white woman could continue to be aggressive.

“Where is your security?” he shouted. “Control her. Oh my God! I don’t understand this. This is crazy. Where is your security? Because this is unacceptable. This is unacceptable.”

The white woman broke away from the guards again and tried to head towards HL again.

“And you still haven’t got her down,” King shouted.

The guards appear to be trying to drag the woman down the hallway as the video ends. After the incident, HL said he was not allowed to stay at the hotel that night.

“You mean you can’t stay at the hotel? What’s in ALL the skin fuqs??? @Hilton @HiltonHotels hey you? “Twitter user @honeychile13 replied to HL.

HL tweeted back to the user, saying, “Yes, they came back to the police saying I attacked them waiting for hours outside the hotel with the police and @hilton wanted me to not see the police so I went in. and stay at the Airbnb that I also have. rent, I only stay at the Hilton because I rented the place for my NYE party.”

A hotel spokesman told the Daily Dot he would be allowed to stay overnight if he chose to do so.

Also HL tweeted that before the video, the couple tried to cut the line and call him by the word N. HL was the Diamond member with priority service, and he refused to allow the pair to dance in front of him.

Twitter users were shocked and outraged not only with the white couple’s behavior but also the way Hilton is said to have handled the situation. Several Twitter users have tagged the Hilton Hotels Twitter account, calling on the company to rectify the situation.

A spokesperson for the Hilton Rio De Janeiro Copacabana told the Daily Dot: “We are aware that a video has been made public that shows part of the altercation between guests at the Hilton Rio De Janeiro Copacabana. “We continue to cooperate with police in their investigation.”

Daily Dot contacted HL via Instagram DM.
