She was accused of attempting to steal a Citi-bike from a group of young black men. The video became viral, and she was forced to take a leave of absence from her employment. Fortunately, Twitter’s “Community Notes” feature allowed social media users to cast doubt on the situation’s veracity.
In an unexpected turn of events, the nurse accused of bike theft was found not guilty after presenting evidence indicating that the bike belonged to her. On Friday, the lawyer for the healthcare worker disclosed that they plan to sue the media. “She has been labeled a racist. She’s been referred to be a thief. There are reasons why defamation laws exist, and we intend to pursue them,” he said.CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR NEWSLETTER

Her employer took to social media to put out a statement:
“We are aware of the video involving a health care provider off duty and away from the hospital campus. The incident in the video is disturbing. The provider is currently out on leave and will remain on leave pending a review. As a health system we are committed to providing an environment for our patients and staff that is free from discrimination of any kind.”

In other words, they panicked and put out a message that they are willing to crush this employee regardless of the outcome.

The EMPLOYMENT ATTORNEY in the video already talked to this journalist and gave her exclusive access to their "proof". It didn't work and they have no leg to stand on.

So has she been fired yet? She easily could have gotten an young man killed – FIRE HER! She is way beyond diversity training. FIRE HER!!

If a woman pays for a bike and a group of males won’t let her get on said bike, she is the victim.
I don’t think race is the issue here

Oh wow the black lady that obviously hates white people and has non stop posted about this situation for days now doesn't want to accept the proof? That's crazy.

He is a liar, she has now provided the receipts

Thanks to Elon Musk, Twitter now has a system where users can do Fact Checks on a tweet and many of them flagged the video to correct the MANY wrongs that were said about the incident, and the woman specifically because what happened is not what’s been overwhelmingly reported.
“The woman has provided receipts to her lawyer showing she had paid for the bike. Insider obtained a receipt revealing payment made for a Citi Bike on the evening of May 12 in Manhattan. The receipt shows that the bicycle was relocked to its dock just a minute later, with no additional charges recorded.”
The fact that she started fake crying for help as if she was in physical danger and she started fake crying, this gives the basis to suspect her of being a white supremacist. And I still stand by that suspicion https://t.co/5opTCdOxai

I hope she sues everyone who defamed her. I hope the people who stole from her get what's coming to them.
