Pregnant physician’s assistant Sarah Comrie has gone into hiding following a viral video that shows a group of men mobbing her over a Citi Bike rental in New York City.
The incident has since resulted in death threats and potential job loss for Comrie, who had been falsley accused of stealing the bike from a black man, despite possessing a receipt that proves she paid for it.
Comrie, 36, found herself at the center of a social media mobbing after footage surfaced of her altercation with a man outside Bellevue Hospital at the end of her shift. The video rapidly spread throughout social media platforms, triggering an army of threats and defamatory comments aimed at Comrie, including the allegation that she was a “suspected white supremacist” by race-baiting thug Tariq Nasheed.
A suspected white supremacist woman tried to steal a Citi Bike from a Black kid after he paid for it, and when him and his friends wouldn't allow her to steal it, she went thru all the Karen tactics to try to get the Black youths hemmed up:

Justin Marino, Comrie’s lawyer, voiced worries that she might lose her job over the incident. Marino presumed that there is no doubt that both news outlets and individuals have humiliated the pregnant nurse, and he is now preparing lawsuits to address these claims.
“What’s at play is what social media did to this woman who’s literally a hero, and has done nothing but help people and within one minute effectively tries to ruin her life” Marino told Fox News.
Marino’s defense is greatly strengthened by the discovery of Comrie’s Citi Bike receipt, which Daily Mail obtained. The receipt provides proof that Comrie had definitely booked the bike outside Bellevue Hospital after finishing her 12-hour shift. The matching handlebar number further confirms her claim. The men participating in the incident and the corporate media swarmed her nevertheless.
To support Comrie in her legal battle, her uncle initiated a GoFundMe campaign, which has raised an almost $100,000 towards its goal. The funds will contribute to taking care of Comrie’s legal expenses as she pursues to amend the damage caused by the incident.
The campaign description reads in part: “My name is Bob Roe. Late last week, my niece, Sarah Comrie, a Physician Assistant at Bellevue, became embroiled in a much-publicized incident with a Citibike that unfairly painted her as a racist “Karen.” The facts have since proven this is a lie, but the damage has been done.”
As the video emerged, Comrie, wearing blue scrubs emblazoned with “NYC Health + Hospitals,” can be seen in anguish, seeking help while a mob gathers around her to thrash her for’ stealing’ the bike.
Justice is coming for the race-baiters…
"She's been called a racist. She's been called a thief. There are reasons defamation laws exist, and we plan to pursue that."

Marino has since provided irrefutable evidence provided by the receipts that clears his client.
