<![CDATA[Soho Karen: Parents Of Teen Falsely Accused Of Stealing Phone Respond To ‘Anxiety’ Defense]]>Tue, 12 Jan 2021 05:00:00 GMThttp://whenwespeaktv.com/events_andmore/soho-karen-parents-of-teen-falsely-accused-of-stealing-phone-respond-to-anxiety-defense
Many of you may have seen the viral video of the "Soho Karen" as she's being called, after she was seen in the lobby of the hotel physically attacking and screaming at a teen. It was later determined that she, Miya Ponsetto, left her phone in an Uber she had taken earlier that day. 
​​After finding out more about the teen, it was disturbing for When We Speak TV, to realize that this is the son of our dear friend, musician Kat Rodriguez, and jazz trumpeter, Keyon Harrold.
​After nearly two weeks of backlash, Ponsetto issued an apology on Jan. 6 through her attorney Sharen Ghatan for accusing Harrold Jr. of stealing her phone. Ghatan told the New York Daily News, “It’s horrible, what happened. She certainly should not have done that. She has some things she has to work through with herself, control issues, anger management issues. Of course, she knows that.”
​Keyon Harrold Sr. and Kat Rodriguez do not believe the claims that Ponsetto has any remorse over the attack on their son or in her desire to issue a public apology. They have issued the following statement:

“This is not about an apology from someone who until a few days ago was claiming she did nothing wrong, and in fact alleged Keyon Harrold Sr. had assaulted her. Someone who targeted a 14-year-old Black child because of the color of his skin. What it is about is significant, societal change. It’s about a system that condones and emboldens racial profiling and considers Black people guilty until proven innocent. A system that exists and thrives because of institutions like the Arlo Hotel who enables the disturbing behavior of people like Miya Ponsetto, and instead of stopping the racist attack on our son, threw gasoline on the fire."
