A video of a White woman and her son harassing a Black employee at their apartment garage in Tennesse has gone viral on social media. The woman called the cops and accused the man of trespassing at the apartment in Nashville, where he reportedly worked as an employee.

The video was posted on YouTube and Redditt by the employee, identified by the name Johnny Martinez, claiming he faced a racist attack from the duo. The video received more than 115,000 views since it was posted Sunday.

Martinez said the duo confronted him while he was doing his job of checking for car permits in River House apartments on Nov. 27. "The first words that came out of Karen’s mouth were “you don’t belong here, how did you get in here"," Martinez said in the caption of his Youtube video. When Martinez reportedly told them that he was doing his work, they demanded his ID, insisting that he did not belong there, Daily Dot reported. 

When the video begins, the woman and her son could be seen asking Martinez for his ID, to which he replies that it is none of their business. Martinez accused that his ID was hanging off his neck and the duo was trying to "demean" him by asking for it.

 "They knew what I was doing and just wanted to demean me by telling me I didn’t belong and trying to force me to show them ID," Martinez said in the caption of the video.

The footage then shows the woman's son trying to knock the phone out of Martinez’s hand and threatening to call the cops. "Dude seriously? You're attacking me," Martinez asks while the woman tries to stop her son. Martinez then encourages them to call cops and says they will be getting arrested for attacking him. 

The video then shows the woman calling 911 and saying: “There’s some gentleman down here, and we asked him what he’s doing down here, and he says it’s none of our business. He’s kind of gotten nasty toward us so we’re trying to figure out why this person’s in the parking lot.”

Martinez interrupts in between and says: “Tell them it’s a Black man walking,” to which the woman replies, “I don’t care what color you are.”

The video ends by showing the woman and her son leaving the garage via the stairs while Martinez accuses them of being racist.

Many viewers came in support of Martinez and appreciated him for standing his ground while recording the incident. Martinez said he has filed a police report and will be pressing charges.
