Self acclaimed mommy of Lagos Bobrisky accused of owing over N6m by jeweler
A Nigerian-American woman, Ijeoma Ukenta, who was seemingly chased by a white woman at Victoria’s Secret, a clothing mall in Millburn, New Jersey, on Saturday, has raised over $85,000 on GoFundMe to hire an attorney to defend herself against the woman.
Ukenta captured the encounter in a viral six-part YouTube series. In the fifth video of the saga, Ukenta displayed what she described as the police report on the incident, claiming that the Victoria’s Secret staff corroborated her version of the events.
“Online, the woman’s actions have morphed into a viral meme, and she has been given the nickname “Victoria’s Secret Karen,” Insiderreports.
“Karen” is a slang term usually used in reference to a white woman who is said to act out of a sense of inflated self-importance, according to The Guardian.
In the first video, which did not capture the exchange that sparked the conflict between the two, the woman seemed to charge at Ukenta. Then, the woman lay in a fainting position on the store’s floor near the cash registers and began to scream and sob, pleading with Ukenta not to record her “mental breakdown.”
In later videos and in what Ukenta said was the police report, she explained that everything began when she was scanning the store’s offering of underwear and the woman started browsing items uncomfortably close to her.
Ukenta said she asked her to “back up” but that the woman instead went to the cash register and told an employee that she (Ukenta) had just threatened her. Ukenta said she decided to start recording the scene on video, and it led to the confrontation captured in the first video.
