In a now-viral video, an unidentified white woman is seen throwing a puppy at a Black man after they had a verbal altercation.
The clip exploded on social media, sparking outrage at the woman and heartfelt praise for the man, who eventually kept the puppy.
Twitter user Glogloglo, also known as Glo Mula uploaded the video in which he says he was confronted by a seemingly disturbed white woman. The two were alone outside of an empty intersection and it is unclear how and why the confrontation began.
Glogloglo recorded himself going back and forth with the woman whose comments were hard to make out during much of the video, although some racial comments could be heard.
In the clip, Glogloglo eventually asked if the dog belonged to the woman who was roughly handling the puppy. She proceeded to throw the puppy a him in response.
The puppy landed roughly on the ground, began to yelp and ran towards the man.
The two-minute-long clip was seen more than 17 million times and garnered more than 53K retweets and 141K likes. As of reporting this, there are more than 9K comments.
The Belgian Malinois puppy was recused by Glogloglo, who set up a GoFundMe page for the dog, which he named Movie.
“Movie was rescued from a psycho Karen by the person she was thrown at this is for anyone who wants to help her!” Glogloglo said on his GoFundMe that already surpassed its goal of $3,000.
