Colleen Dagg ended up physically fighting the lady after she made some disparaging comments about Haitians.
A woman from Florida is being labeled a ‘hero’ online after taking on another white woman allegedly being racist in the lobby of a Florida hotel.
A video posted to Twitter then showed the woman confronting Dagg, who was sitting in a chair in the lobby of a hotel, and then began hitting her.
An ugly brawl breaks out between two women after a racist remark.
Colleen Dagg, seen here on the left, was caught on camera pummeling Summer Cortts, seen in the teal dress after she made some racist comments in the lobby of a Florida hotel.
The video did not capture the racist comments, but Cortts was seen getting in Dagg’s face.
In the days since the fight, Colleen Dagg, pictured, has set up several social media accounts, including Twitter and Instagram.
Dagg said that before the video recording began, the teal-dressed woman, since identified as Summer Cortot’s 39, was goading Dagg with racist remarks about a black Haitian security guard.
She was told to shut up.
Dagg then took off her shoes in the building’s lobby while Cortts taunted her.
‘Why are you taking your shoes off?’ the woman asks. ‘You gonna hit me with one of your shoes? I’m gonna f***** shoot you in your f****** face.’
A security guard is then heard telling both women to leave.
‘I’m taking my shoes off so that if she puts her hands on me, I can defend myself,’ Dagg responds.
Cortts then got in Dagg’s face and shoved her.
The fight lasted for several minutes before security guards and finally, cops intervened.
At this point, Dagg lost her temper. ‘You put your f****** hands on me?!’ she exclaimed and began pummeling the woman until hotel staff, and eventually, cops intervened.
Colleen Dagg is being hailed a hero for beating up another woman whom she claimed was racist. The fight was recorded and posted to social media.
The person who originally shared the video, Austin, explained: ‘Unprovoked violence is bad.
‘But provoked violence, especially as a response to racism, seems to be A-OKAY with the internet.’
The woman who was spewing the racist comments, which was not caught on camera, claimed to be the victim in the video after being assaulted by Dagg, despite provoking the fight.
Eventually, a police officer arrives and tells the teal-dressed lady to ‘calm down and take a seat’ multiple times. The woman denies she hit Dagg first, but Dagg turns to the person filming and confirms that a recording was made.
She exclaimed that she was ‘three months pregnant and is insisted that Dagg be charged and sent to jail.
Dagg has received numerous plaudits online for her actions and for standing up to racism.
Since the fight occurred, Dagg has responded to her internet adulation by signing up for her own Twitter account. She has defended her decision to retaliate against the woman who was seemingly goading her.
Dagg has already amassed 22,000 followers on her Instagram account, which has only been active for one day.
‘This is a young country, built on racism. Black people have been disenfranchised for over 250 years. The faster white people accept and validate the truth, the closer we’ll come to a place of peace and understanding. Fighting racism is dependent upon using my white privilege for the right reasons,’ she wrote on Twitter.
‘There were 2 examples of white privilege in the video. The woman in the blue dress tried to use her white privilege on me, the fact that I’m white too must have slipped her mind. If you see it, say something. It’s really that simple. Disclaimer; some people can’t handle the truth. Stay ready,’ she continued.
The Coral Springs Police Department says the fight took place on Tuesday at the La Quinta Inn near For Lauderdale.
Officers arrested Cortts, a Boca Raton resident, and charged her with disorderly conduct and inciting an affray because she ‘escalated the situation by placing her hands on Colleen Dagg.’
