Following very public backlash after a video of her allegedly calling the cops on a girl selling water in San Francisco went viral, Permit Patty has resigned from her company, Treatwell Health, according to a statement released Tuesday.
“Allison Ettel, CEO of Treatwell Health, has resigned, effective immediately. This decision, while not an easy one, is in the best interest of their patients,” the statement said in part.
Cynthia Gonzalez, spokesperson for Treatwell Health, said in the statement that “a terrible mistake was made that affected a young girl and her family.”
Ettel was caught on camera over the weekend allegedly calling police on an 8-year-old girl who was selling bottled water outside her apartment near AT&T Park.
The video has since gone viral and sparked nationwide outrage over the incident.
“In a heated moment, a critically wrong decision was made by our CEO. The guilt lies in that decision, and while it was completely wrong, the act that followed was not motivated by any racist intent whatsoever,” the statement read in part.
On Monday a marijuana dispensary in Oakland announced it was no longer selling Treatwell Tinctures products following the incident.
Ettel has since said she did not actually call the police but rather used a stern voice when she approached the child about selling water without a permit.
She says she now regrets it and has even received death threats.
