Karen filmed hurling racist abuse says family attacked her like bees

A bikini-clad 'Karen', who went viral for hurling racist abuse at a family by the pool, has doubled down on her rant claiming they 'attacked her like bees'.

The shocking minute-long video showed the woman, now identified as Blair Featherman, going on a deranged racist rant at a family because they were hosting a "f***ing Mexican party" by the pool.

The clip, which has been circulating on social media, shows the irate 49-year-old white woman having to be restrained by her own family members as she could be heard complaining about a Latino family chilling by a Colorado pool.

Blair, who was wearing a mismatched bikini, was seen shouting at the family while labelling them "trash" and saying "they should go back down to Denver."

People around the pool were stunned at the woman's racial outburst as she continued to harass the family and at one point screamed "get the f*** out."

"Yes, it's true," the woman is heard saying in the widely seen clip, visibly annoyed by the group's presence.

"You're having a f*****g Mexican party in a pool."

The woman is then asked to leave by the family but she angrily responds: "I live here, nowhere you ever came from, you f****** low-class slime."

One of the family members approaches the woman filming, before physically accosting her, knocking the phone out of her hands.

"You can't do that. You can't just record me, " the woman says.

However, the woman has now defended her actions as she claims the family attacked her "like bees".

"We noticed a party gathering on the other side of the pool and it was getting bigger and bigger and bigger," Featherman told Inside Edition.

"They swarmed over like a swarm of bees, it was very fast. I got pushed first by a man, and then the women jumped on me.

"I was literally curled up in a ball, trying to do as much as I could to get them from getting in close to me."

The incident reportedly occurred at a swanky apartment complex in Lakewood, Colorado, where the pool is gated and open only to residents.

But according to Blair, the family were hosting a party at the poolside and many none recidents had come to "stay all day" so she decided to confront them.

The video has since gained more than a million views on TikTok as viewers have branded her a "racist Karen."

However, Blair insist she is "not racist" and that the video had been "edited to make her look bad".

Speaking to the Daily Mail, she said: "'I have been trying to stay silent and not comment about this, but there are things the video doesn't show.

"I'm not a racist. It was deceptively edited and put together to tell a narrative that isn't true."

Police were called to the scene but it remains unclear if anyone was arrested.
