  • #PermitPatty: Woman allegedly calls police on girl selling water in San Francisco

"We talk about not just crime, we talk about disorder - anything that makes folks feel uncomfortable or says that the social norms that we've all agreed to are being violated", he said.

"She asked me where's my permit?"

A seller's permit is required in San Francisco if someone plans to sell something for a temporary period or something that would be subject to sales tax at a store, according to the city's business portal.

"Erin stepped in and told her to leave her kid alone".

"I highly doubt she was on anyone else's cases about whether they have a permit", said San Francisco resident Kari Estrada.

Jordan was selling the water bottles outside the family's apartment building, which is across the street from AT&T Stadium, where the Giants were playing that day, Austin said.

The woman claimed she was upset because she could hear the girl outside her office.

In the footage, the child's mother can be heard chastising Ettel as she stands on the phone; crouching down behind a wall when she realises she is being filmed.

"The world's gonna see you, boo", the cousin said. Into the cellphone held up to her ear.

The girl's mother said that the enterprising young woman had made a decision to sell water in front of their apartment building near AT&T Park, where the Giants had a home game that evening.

Things That Happen In Every 'Jurassic Park' Movie
In theaters right now, the fifth installment of the Jurassic Park is playing at a local multiplex somewhere near you right now. Ian Malcolm, in the original franchise reprises his role briefly in the new movie " Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ".

"You can hide all you want", the mother said. The woman filming approaches her.

And then the woman on the phone responds, "And illegally selling water without a permit?"

A representative for Ettel said the woman's actions were not racially motivated.

"It's not your property", Ettel quips back before the video cuts. "After seeing this video of their CEO, calling the police on an 8-year-old entrepreneur selling water on a hot day, we decided without hesitation that we could no longer patronize her company", Magnolia said in a statement on Instagram. The hashtag - and related memes - have spread widely online.

"There was no point in having the police come", Ettel said. "I'm glad this has become a learning experience for my little girl - do the right thing and it'll all work out". "They are getting harassed".

As for Rodgers, her cousin Lee has since showed on social media that she's still out selling water.

It's something she says she now deeply regrets. "I would never want to crush anyone's entrepreneurial spirit". I am not racist and what I did had absolutely nothing to with her race.

Meanwhile, Jordan can retire from the cold water business: She's going to Disneyland after all. It wouldn't have drowned out the noise either, she said.

It's the latest in a series of white people calling police on blacks in public parks, coffee shops, and other spaces, Fox News reported. "She's calling police on an 8-year-old little girl", says Austin in the video.

The incident follows one in May at Lake Merritt in which a woman - dubbed "BBQ Becky" - called police to report an African American family barbecuing at the park, reported KRON.
