It seems clear from the clip that the two featured females — one black, one white — facing off on a gravel driveway are acquainted with each other.
Aleeyah — who’s apparently from Oklahoma — posted video of the incident Tuesday on Twitter to much fanfare. It’s been retweeted nearly 45,000 times as of Friday afternoon.
“I’ve already spoken to the police, I have it all under control,” she tweeted Wednesday. “Threats were made by her initially.” Aleeyah added that the white female said she would “blow my head off.”
On Thursday, Aleeyah referred to civil rights and the Black Lives Matter movement:
I’m not defending nor justifying anything that the young white girl said. I don’t have much sympathy for people who do ignorant shit like that. But if I took offense at something a black man said and proceeded to punch him in the face, what would happen to me?
What would the public reaction be?
