“This is not how I planned to congratulate my little sister on her first car purchase. This is completely intentional, disgusting, unfair, and many other adjectives I could use to describe this situation. Rather than responding like a ‘Bon Quisha,’ I’m responding like a Karen. This was not a mistake. With the exception of the letter ‘N,’ her name is spelled using the first row of the keyboard,” he wrote.
“Typing Bon Quisha requires effort and intent. I’m outraged that she was publicly humiliated without a public/private apology. I’m waiting to hear back from a couple of my colleagues in the legal space, but please tell me if this is something my family should explore. She’s not well at the moment. If you know her, please send love her way,” Jacob further commented.
The owner of the dealership also spoke with WTVD off-camera and said he reached out to Bethune on Thursday to apologize. Apparently, the insult wasn’t harsh enough for him to take the car sale as a loss and pay off the entire note. He also noted to the station that he was Native American and the action of that one individual does not represent their diverse group of employees.
