Gregory McAdory, Rockford, Illinois black man has white woman call (aka Karen) cops on him and friend for shoveling snow off neighbor’s front yard for free.
Would she have resisted had they been white?
Disconcert has come to the fore following video showing a belligerent white woman berating two black men outside her home in Illinois while shovelling snow off the sidewalk outside her home.
Gregory McAdory, who runs a snow removal business in Rockford, IL, was clearing a driveway for his friend’s dad on Feb. 17 when he and his pal decided to clear the sidewalk too — at no cost.
But the helpful duo didn’t receive any gratitude from the neighbor, an elderly ‘white woman’ aka Karen (self entitled woman ensconced in white privilege) who took offense at their altruism, with the peeved woman threatening to cal cops, the Daily Beast reported.
‘When the police is called on people of my color, just to be on the safe side, I just say, ‘Record,’’ McAdory told the outlet.
This is what racists do, use cops as their personal ‘exterminator’ service. These guys could’ve been killed & she knows it. I bet she’d have a revelation about it being public land if someone fell & be quick to say it was these men shovelling the snow (1/2

‘I don’t need anything from you!’
The TikTok video he posted the next day shows the interaction between the two young men and the woman, who even goes so far as to move their shoveled snow back onto the sidewalk.
‘You’re seriously mad because we cleaned off your sidewalk?’ McAdory asks in disbelief.
‘Don’t trespass that line!’ the woman retorts, pointing at a snow barrier. ‘I don’t need anything from you!’
Matters devolved when the friend shovels the snow off the sidewalk again.
‘That’s trespassing property!’ the woman who later self identifies as ‘Brunny’ told the two men.
‘This is a public sidewalk!’ McAdory says.
‘Get out of my way!’ she snaps back and calls the cops, declaring ‘an emergency.’
‘These guys are African American. I don’t get along with them,’
‘These two guys are African American, and I don’t get along with them. … They are making fun of me. See, they don’t have no respect!’ the woman is heard saying on the phone.
‘They’ll come faster if you say there’s two n—gers over here,’ McAdory says in the video.
‘These guys are African American. I don’t get along with them,’ the woman tells the dispatcher.
According to the police log obtained by the Daily Beast, the woman reported disorderly conduct.
‘There is a [race redacted]/M there harassing her and she doesn’t want him there,” the dispatcher’s notes reportedly state.
‘She says they are disrespecting her and she wants them gone,’ they add.
In another video, two cops are seen at the location, where one says the woman may suffer from a mental illness and the men are asked to not shovel her snow.
Eventually the two were told by the cops to avoid the drama and just leave the woman’s property alone, per a second TikTok video. However, McAdory told The Daily Beast he was only trying to do an act of kindness because the woman had complained about them shoveling their friend’s driveway before.
‘I don’t know what’s wrong with her. I don’t know if it’s racism,’ McAdory told the Daily Beast. ‘I just didn’t want to be arrested for something as minor as that.’
