Advertisements

Miya Taylor Ponsetto is a former cheerleader raised in Simi Valley, California, United States. She has also lived in other areas of California including Sun Valley and Piru.

On December 26, 2020, Ponsetto was caught on camera attacking black American jazz musician Keyon Harrold, then 40, and his son Keyon Harrold Jr., then 14, at the Arlo SoHo Boutique Hotel in New York City, New York, USA. She falsely accused the younger Harrold of stealing her iPhone.

Because of this, Ponsetto was dubbed the SoHo Karen. Prior to the incident, most of her favorite items on her Etsy profile were iPhone cases.

According to Ponsetto, she is of Italian, Puerto Rican, Greek and Vietnamese descent. Here are 13 more things about her:

  1. She’s had a very busy year of run-ins with the law. Make sure she pays for this last one. She needs to grow up and learn a lesson or two. Some jail time should do it.

  2. Good thing she was not a blond hair blue eyed lady. So not only does Simi Valley have racist whites they have racist Hispanics too. Go figure. I thought only white people could be racist.

  3. Definitely mental health issues here. But who says she made accusations she deliberately knew were false like Susan Smith in South Carolina twenty years back? Definitely a worrisome disorderly conduct mental breakdown, but really changing her with deliberately concocting a story they knew to be false? (I.E. Jessie Smolette with his “Afternoon Special Tele-script” fake “hate crime”) This incident is being distorted into a display of female hysteria into something it isn’t out of this same lying pinko media agenda we’ve been bombarded with since that petty copper thief running away from being caught trespassing in Georgia was given the big lie treatment about “just being out jogging.”

  4. Thank you for the information Marky. I suspect Antifa Sacramento will be happy to discuss this matter with Miya and her family.

  5. The liberal media and the black racist family already portrait this as a racist attack by a ‘white’ woman and will sue not this ‘Hispanic’ racist but the hotel for huge financial gain. Yes, there will always be ‘white’ racists, but the fact is there are more ‘black’ and ‘Hispanic’ racists ready and waiting to use the word for financial gain!!

      • Jessie whoever, look up the definition of racism and then come back here and reword your response. I don’t have time for ignorance. Furthermore, this is about this terrible human being attacking a child for no reason. Stick to the damn topic, bigot.

      • Hi, did you know you’re gay? It seems like you are trying to come out, safe space here to do it! much love! Also, we all looked up the “definition” in the “dictionary,” and it doesn’t support your “theory” that black people can’t be racist. They can be, shucks!

  6. To deescalate a sticky situation…if I were the kid’s Pepi…I would have politely asked SoHo Karen to make the Manager of the Hotel…lurking nearby…to call her phone number and see if the phone in kid’s hand rings. End of story. No violence. No yelling. No cops involved. This is called civility. Why didn’t Pepi do this simple thing?

  7. Could we also remove the word VN from her bio? I hate that she has anything to do with my ethnic group. She’s disgusting. Stand more than 6 feet from this skank.
