Adjust Comment Print

Following the latest #LivingWhileBlack controversy, fortunes have diverged for Ettel and the eight-year-old she's accused of bullying. She said she only called police to figure out if a permit was needed to sell the water at that location. After an initial confrontation, Erin Austin, the girl's mother, began filming Ettel, flabbergasted by Ettel's absurd reaction.

"I tried to be polite but I was stern", Ettel said of her composure in the filmed incident. "The lady called the police because I didn't have a permit", said the girl.

"This woman don't wanna let a little girl sell some water", Austin can be heard saying.

Ettel said that she was working in her auto with her windows open on a hot day while Austin and Rodgers shouted as they tried to sell water.

Meanwhile, Austin said on Instagram that a musician bought her and her family four tickets to Disneyland.

The video of a woman dubbed "Permit Patty" went viral over the weekend. Ettel also claimed that she had no issues with the girl selling water but was severely annoyed at the mother-daughter duo "screaming about what they were selling".

"My cousin heard her on the phone", Lee told Teen Vogue.

Under the Twitter hashtag #PermitPatty, the video has been viewed more than 4.5 million times.

Ettel says she, her former company, and even her customers have been harassed in the aftermath of the incident.

Ettel responded to the criticism in statements to media outlets, including an interview with the Huffington Post in which she attempted to explain her motive. She'd been "putting up" with the noise for hours, she explained, and "just snapped". She was back on Sunday selling water again.

"Now I'm starting to think she did it on goal", Jordan said, "because I think she doesn't care about people's skin colors, because she doesn't care about people's lives except for hers".
