A notoriously foul-mouthed far-right Tennessee woman has been filmed screaming anti-gay obscenities at Black Lives Matter protestors in the US city of Elizabethton.
Sonya Holt yelled the obscenities while surrounded by other members of a far-right group, some of whom were carrying Confederate flags.
Local news reported the group as being there “for law enforcement, protection of statues and community support”.
Across a number of videos, Holt screams “White lives matter! White lives matter, you black, twisted, crazy person!”, and refers to a Black woman filming her as “a poor little black girl who’s got a messed-up mind”.
She also challenges a man to approach her group, with cries of “Come across the line, f*g boy. Come across the line.”
She later says to him: “You are a gay homosexual piece of crap and you’re going to burn in Hell.”
In the video, Holt is referred to as ‘Karen’, which is defined by Urban Dictionary as: “The stereotypical name associated with rude, obnoxious and insufferable middle-aged white women”.
