The California woman dubbed “Soho Karen” for falsely accusing a black teen of stealing her iPhone and allegedly attacking him at a Big Apple hotel says she can’t be racist because she’s a “woman of color.”
Over the weekend, Ponsetto was charged with attempted robbery, grand larceny, acting in a manner injurious to a child and two counts of attempted assault over the alleged Dec. 26 caught-on-camera attack on 14-year-old Keyon Harrold Jr. at Manhattan’s Arlo Hotel.
The teen victim is the son of jazz trumpet player Keyon Harrold.
Ponsetto, who showed up to the nationally televised interview wearing a hat that said “Daddy,” recounted the incident with King.
“I had noticed my phone had been missing. So I just approached the hotel manager, asked him if he could kindly just check the footage,” Ponsetto recalled.
