Afterward, the woman, identified as Alison Ettel of Treatwell Health, a San Francisco edibles company with cannabis options for pets, ducks behind a retaining wall.

The 15-second video took off on social media, notching more than 641,000 views as of Saturday afternoon.

The white woman who called the police on an 8-year-old black girl who was selling water outside her San Francisco apartment says she's not racist and that she was only pretending to call.

She also added the incident left her feeling awful and heart-wrenched because the girl's mother started yelling at her.

"You can hide all you want", Erin Austin, mother of the young girl, can be heard saying. "My little cousin is doing okay for those who are asking and her mom is going to be pressing charges for harassment".

"This woman don't wanna let a little girl sell some water".

And then the woman on the phone responds, "And illegally selling water without a permit?"

The little girl's cousin tweeted footage of the incident, referring to the complaining woman as #PermitPatty.

Shortly after the video was posted, people began drawing comparisons to #BBQBecky, or Jennifer Schulte, who became widely known in late April when a video of her calling the police on a group of black people barbecuing at Lake Merritt in Oakland vent viral.

But after discovering the girl didn't have a permit to do so, the woman, dubbed Permit Patty online, allegedly called the police on her.

"Its not your property", the woman snaps back.

Angry Twitter users slammed the woman for her petty actions.

She also said her issue was not with the selling of the water, it was because the girl and her relatives were screaming loudly to advertise their product.
