“I was just as guilty as she was.” The man says he should have defused the situation and not responded aggressively.
The man responds at one point, “get out of my face, expletive!” However, the looks can be deceiving. He clarified the woman did not spit on the man with Mercedes.
Carlton, the Black man in the silver Mercedes Benz, clarified that everything would have been a “different ballgame” if the woman had spit on him. He added the woman just “coughed” instead of spitting. “It was more of a cough than spit,” he continued.
He claims the couple in the other car tailgated him and got out at the stop sign. Yet after hearing the woman accuse him of not being able to afford his car, she did not view the remark as overt sexism.
She claims that the barrage of social media messages does not reflect what happened. Carlton made one thing sure: The woman on the viral video never said the N-word and anything racial and slur to him, and nor did he.
He, however, admitted he was in the wrong for aggressively responding. “I hold myself responsible for not defusing the situation which is what I should have done,” said Carlton. He added he was just as guilty as she was.
Carlton claims he wasn’t spitting at the woman either. He doesn’t want the woman to suffer the repercussions that others have in similar videos.
“I don’t want to see fire on anyone,” Carlton said.
