Racist dog abuser Amy Cooper says she meant no harm falsely reporting that an “African American man threatened my life” in Central Park on Memorial Day after bird-watcher Christian Cooper called her out for not having her dog on a leash.
Cooper, who has been placed on administrative leave by her employer Franklin Templeton, issued an “public apology” late Monday night. She “voluntarily surrendered” the dog to the rescue facility where she got him.
According to CNN, Cooper said: “I’m not a racist. I did not mean to harm that man in any way.” She said she was sorry and that her call was not motivated by racism.
