A woman accosted a reporter and photojournalist in Boone, Iowa, on Tuesday, putting her hands on the reporter and hurling racial epithets and other profanity at her.
Emmy Victor, who is black, was reporting on the shooting death of Michael Disbrowe, 28, whom police killed Monday night in Boone. Victor, a reporter for the TV station KCCI, maintained her composure as a white woman — later identified asDisbrowe’s mother — began swearing at Victor and calling her racial slurs.
“Ma’am, ma’am, don’t ever,” Victor says before the woman approaches her a second time and shoves her finger in Victor’s face.
