A woman alleges she has been receiving death threats after a video showing her calling police on an 8-year-old girl who was selling water surfaced.

Ettel, who has not responded to the Guardian's requests for comment, has defended her actions in interviews, saying she was "pretending" to call police and that she had grown frustrated at the noise the girl and her mother were making. And a Yale University student was interrogated by police after her dorm neighbor called the police because she was napping in a common area.

She told USA Today she only pretended to call the police on the girl. It started with Ettel standing on the sidewalk with her phone to her ear. "I had been putting up with this for hours, and I just snapped". "After seeing this video of their CEO, calling the police on an 8 year old entrepreneur selling water on a hot day, we decided without hesitation that we could no longer patronize her company".

"In the video caption, Austin asked people to make the woman go viral under the hashtag "#permitpatty", which sparked outrage and continued the debate over policing and racism. By Sunday, the moniker stuck.

At least three cannabis retailers, Magnolia Oakland, SPARC and Barbary Coast, announced that they will no longer carry Treatwell products.

"A awful mistake was made that affected a young girl and her family", Treatwell Health spokeswoman Cynthia Gonzalez said in a statement to KGO-TV, this news organization's media partner. A spokesperson for the San Francisco Police Department, Robert Rueca, confirmed to ABC News that "there is no complaint nor do we have any record as to whether she called".

"(L) et's help kids in San Francisco avoid any future #PermitPatty", the mother writes on the page. "She's not screaming. The men on the street selling parking passes are louder than her".

But Austin says Ettel never asked them to be quiet, only demanded that the girl show her a permit for selling water. "So I said, 'OK, call the cops.' And she did". "And she regrets her part and is remorseful", said the statement, sent by Cynthia Gonzales who told the Guardian she was helping Ettel with PR and crisis management. Ettel says she's sorry and that the incident had nothing to do with race.

"This issue was initially brought to our attention via numerous social media posts, and we felt it was extremely important as an inclusive collective to have an immediate response that communicated to our valued customers, vendors and community supporters that Green Trees Wellness denounces Ms. Ettel's behavior", company president David Abarta said in a statement. Not only has she been exposed for allegedly illegally selling marijuana, but now the legal side of the drug ring is shutting her all the way down as marijuana dispensaries want nothing to do with her.

Ettel claims that the incident occurred because Austin was "screaming".
