The woman yelling at the man through his car window

"You're a n—ger!"

This is allegedly what the woman said, pointedly and vehemently, to the man recording her from his car window as she called her husband to tell him to come and deal with him.


Apparently the confrontation on May 30 started when the man, presumably black, got into his car and started his vehicle in a Cheektowaga, N.Y., parking lot, scaring the woman's two children. This allegedly set the woman off, and she started a racial-slur-filled tirade against the man in the vehicle, who calmly began recording her.

"I called you a n—ger. You're a n—ger! Nasty f—king n—ger!" the woman shouted at the man while allegedly on the phone with her husband. She was apparently calling him to come and beat up the unidentified man, posting under the YouTube name IAMOYAB.

"Talk to this f—king n—ger right now. I'm telling you, he's recording me," she said to her husband. "Tell him you will f—king kill him. I will f—king yank his ass out the car."

Meanwhile, the man continued to record from his car, occasionally punctuating her rant with "Please do"—like when she threatened to pull him out of his vehicle or call the cops—and "very well."


The video ends with the woman telling the man to stay where he is so her husband can come and beat his "ass," before she threatens to "whip" her coffee at him—at which point he rolls up his car windows and locks his doors, commenting in disbelief, "Racism is alive and well, I tell you … amazing. Absolutely amazing. This is where we live at. This is exactly where we live and what goes on. I start my car, she calls me a n—ger. Amazing."

The woman was later identified as Janelle Ambrosia and took the time to tell her side of the story in an interview with a local Buffalo station, 93.7 WBLK, in a video posted on Wednesday.


"He almost hit my son," she claimed. "I was like, 'You almost hit my son with my car,' and he called me a crack-headed cracker." 

"I'm not a racist," Ambrosia insisted. "I have a black cousin." 

"He just pissed me off; I'm bipolar," she told the station by way of an excuse. "And quite frankly, if you look it up, 'n—ger' means an ignorant person. It has nothing to do with race. But it's OK for him to call me a cracker and a honky, though? That's racist."


Ambrosia seemed to get emotional in the middle of the interview, with sniffles being heard, as she lamented "being all over the place" and the fact that her ex apparently wants to remove the children from her care.  

"I'm really not a racist. I was just pissed off," she said.
