Actress Jacqueline Guzman, Cuban-American, was dismissed from her theatrical company after she went on a rampage over the funeral procession for slain NYPD officer Jason Rivera in a video that quickly gained widespread attention on social media.
After receiving significant negative feedback across various social media platforms in response to the Tik-Tok video that she released on January 28, 2022, she has decided to remove the clip.
Because the funeral procession was causing several routes in Lower Manhattan to be blocked off, she appeared to be incredibly insensitive in her video. Guzman is heard saying in the video that was uploaded to TikTok,
“We do not need to shut down much of Lower Manhattan because one police officer died for presumably performing his job badly.” They murder individuals under the age of 22 every single day for no apparent reason, and we don't close the city down for them.
After widespread backlash for the disgraceful outburst she posted online, the actress was ultimately let go from her theatrical company.
“It is unnecessary for us to close down the majority of Lower Manhattan because one police officer was killed for possibly performing his job poorly. She is heard saying this in the tape, which was uploaded to TikTok under the name @vinylboobs.
“They kill individuals under 22 every day for no good reason, and we don't shut down the city for them,” the clip was initially posted under the handle “vinylboobs.”
“This is so f*cking absurd it's not even funny. This is completely and utterly absurd. What should we do if somebody nearby is experiencing a heart attack? “No one can get to them because it's all shut off for one f—ing officer,” the foolish actress said as she went through a roadway that was cordoned off with barriers.
During the reaction, Guzman's acting company, Face to Face Films, announced that she “is no longer a member of our organization.” Cristal Guzman, the victim's sister, also uploaded a video to TikTok discussing the flood of erroneous hate comments and threats.
Cristal expressed gratitude to her family, friends, customers, and other business owners who “had our backs,” She said that “that level of support got us through the day.”
In addition, the sisters clarified their position in a post they published on Instagram.
The post includes the following message: “Please note that we have been erroneously and deliberately labeled in a hostile post.” It should be made clear that none of us is responsible for that post, nor do we have any connection to it.
Every member of law enforcement in our town has our full support. Her messaging is offensive to us, and we disagree with it.
“We kindly ask that you refrain from continuing to link ourselves with this individual. It has come to our attention that the young lady shown in the video has both her first and last names with one of our Sister Sweets, who goes by Jacqueline. It states, “We do NOT know this girl, and it is NOT the same Jacqueline.”
To prevent any future misunderstandings for the time being, “respectfully we have switched off the commenting and have made our page private,” the message states further.
In addition, the sisters acknowledged their appreciation in a statement published on Sunday on Instagram. They stated, “There was SO MUCH of you who truly showed up for us in a time where we felt like everything we worked SO HARD for was done.”
“There was SO MUCH of you who came up for us in a time where we felt like everything we worked SO HARD for was gone.” “We are exhausted, and it isn't done yet, but we WILL get through this, and we are indebted to our incredible Sweets Family for all their support!”
Rivera, age 22, was killed by a gun fired by Lashawn McNeil on January 21 in Harlem as he was responding to a report about domestic violence.
Officer Wilbert Mora, Rivera's partner, was also severely injured in the shooting on January 21. Still, he was able to survive for many days while being kept alive on life support so that his organs could be donated.
