A property manager at a Tennessee apartment complex lost her job after she called police on a black couple because one of them was wearing socks at the pool, WREG reports.
Kam Porter, a resident of Riverset Apartments in Memphis, went to the pool with her boyfriend on July 4 when community manager Erica Walker confronted the couple.
In a video posted to Facebook, Porter is heard saying, “I think she’s calling the police because he has on socks.”
“She’s walking off making a phone call to whoever she needs to call. I haven’t said anything crazy to her, but I did tell her I was not going to leave,” she continued.
“So, she basically said no hats, no shirts, no socks,” Porter said. “We have two men, who are her friends, sitting right here in hats. Two hats. We have a man over here sitting in a hat.”
In the video, Walker did not have much to say when a police officer, who is black, showed up.
“After assessing statements from Ms. Porter and determining that this former employee’s actions violate our company’s policies & beliefs, she is no longer employed by Riverset Apartments,” the company said in a statement after the video went viral.
