A white teenager, who provokes social media controversy by declaring to be black while mocking black culture, was arrested at a North Carolina mall Saturday for allegedly kicking a police officer during a ruckus that sparked false reports of an active shooter.
Victoria Waldrip, 17, known as “Woah Vicky” on Instagram, was arrested at the Four Seasons Town Centre Mall in Greensboro and charged with trespassing, assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest, according to the Greensboro Police Department.
Despite presenting herself as a black woman in a number of cringe-worthy social media posts, the blond, fair-skinned Georgia native is listed as white in her police report.
Waldrip was initially taken into custody for trespassing at the mall after mall security and police gave her “multiple opportunities to leave.” She resisted her arrest and kicked an officer, police said.
During the scuffle, a man accompanying Waldrip began shouting and “acting disorderly” — prompting other people to scream and run through the mall, according to police.
At one point, an unidentified person yelled about “shots being fired,” causing “mass panic” at the mall, police said. Dispatchers received several calls about an active shooter, but officers on the scene were able to confirm that those reports were false. Waldrip was the only person taken into custody.
Waldrip went home Sunday after being released, The Blast reported.
After her release, Waldrip posted a video on her social media page of her hugging a black man whom she referred to as her “uncle.” She also claimed that police were racist toward her, along with the #blacklivesmatter hashtag.
In previous videos, Waldrip drops the N-word, poses with guns, sells weaves, wears do-rags over her straight hair and does makeup tutorials aimed at black women.
