MEET PERMIT PATTY – THE INTERNET’S NEWEST VILLAINJune 26, 2018
If you thought calling the cops on African Americans enjoying a barbecue was bad, wait until you meet Permit Patty.
Permit Patty, whose real name is Alison Ettel, called the cops on an eight-year-old black girl who was selling water bottles outside of her own residence in San Francisco. The young girl was trying to raise money for a trip to Disneyland.
Alison, who lives in the neighborhood, approached the mother of the girl when she heard the young entrepreneur advertising her sale. Afterwards, Alison decided to call the cops because they did not have a proper permit.
The mother of the young girl recollected the exchange:
“She comes out and demands the permit for my daughter. She said if we didn’t give it to her she’d call the cops. So I said, ‘OK, call the cops.’ And she did.”
Alison denies any racist motivations behind her actions and posed the question: “What would you do if you were trying to work and someone was screaming outside of your window on a hot day when there’s no air conditioning?”
We’re not buying it and neither is the internet. Tune in to see some of our favorite reactions to Permit Patty.
