On Saturday, a white woman named Svitlana Flom was video recorded by a black woman who she had called the cops on multiple times.
The interaction took place between 6:15pm and 7:31pm near the Waterline Square area of the UWS, around 60th and West End Avenue.
The woman taking the video appeared to be minding her own business.
According to the Instagram post, it all started because Svitlana thought the woman was smoking in public. The post states that she ended up calling the police at least three times. By the third call, Svitlana tells the police she was “threatening her & her children.”
In the first clip, you can hear Svitlana tell the police that she’s “playing the black card.”
The woman who took the videos, @_brownsugarbaby on Instagram, also states (and displays in the videos) that not one person came to the aid of Svitlana (who is shown to be pregnant) – not even her husband.
At one point, Svitlana actually asks the woman to walk with her to the police station.

From 6:15pm – 7:31pm this women, Svitlana Flom, artdefete felt the need to not only approach me but call the cops MULTIPLE TIMES ON ME!! She was too “Alarmed” that I was sitting “comfortably” in “her neighborhood!” The first call was because she THOUGHT I was smoking in public.. but by the 3rd call, it was bcuz I was “threatening her & her children !!” While giving my description, she exaggerated her story & made it seem like I was the aggressor. “THIS AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN IS ATTACKING ME AND MY CHILDREN!” She had tears that were off & on & she stated things like “She’s pulling the black card!” Then wanted me to walk to the boys w/ her ??????
