A white female employee at Bellevue Hospital in New York City was caught on camera trying to take a rental bike from a black man in a dramatic scene. In the video, which was posted to Twitter, the woman in scrubs can be seen trying to take the CitiBike, while trying to paint the man as a threat.
“Help! Help me! Please, help me,” the woman yells in the clip, which has already racked up over 6.6 million views. Meanwhile, the man keeps his grips on the handlebars and tells her that he has already paid for the bike.
The woman continues to make a scene while screaming, “Get off me! Get off me, you’re hurting my fetus,” and pushing and shoving the young man.
“I’m not touching you! You’re putting your stomach on my hand,” he says as she continues to cry out for help.
Around halfway through the two-minute clip, a white man wearing the same scrubs as the provider walks over and asks her what is going on. She then proceeds to start crying as if she were the victim.
At this point, the black man who rented the bike says, “This is my bike, it’s on my account. Please move.”
This lady tried her best to weaponize her tears, but when she realized it wasn’t going to work she switched it off and acted like nothing happened.

The woman’s coworker tells her to take another bike instead. She quickly stops crying and gets on another bike as if nothing happened.
A spokesperson for NYC Health + Hospitals called the video “disturbing.”
The New York Police Department said it is aware of the situation.
“There are currently no 911 calls or reports on file for this incident,” said a spokesperson for the Deputy Commissioner, Public Information (DCPI). “The NYPD encourages anyone who believes they were a victim of a crime to come forward and report it at any police facility so that an investigation can commence.”
Users on social media were quick to chastise the woman for her behavior.
“Racism at its finest. She fully understands that white women generally have the privilege of being perceived as ‘innocent’ which is why she attempted to use her tears as a weapon against this young black man. And of course, she works in healthcare, probably treating black patients like s**t. She needs to be FIRED and should be embarrassed to be a sick evil racist piece of s**t,” one person commented.
“She is deplorable. What she did was an act of violence, and she should suffer consequences. Like this really pissed me off because we get killed over s–t like this,” wrote another.
Scrubs Magazine reached out to Bellevue Hospital for further comment but did not hear back.
