A Brooklyn community has rallied around a nine-year-old black boy left traumatized after a white woman accused him of touching her butt in a bodega.

Neighborhood officials and local residents gathered in front of the Sahara Deli Market in Flatbush on Monday evening to show their support for Jeremiah Harvey, who was aggressively confronted by Teresa Klein last week.

The 53-year-old dubbed ‘Cornerstore Caroline’ by a witness who filmed her tirade has since apologized to Jeremiah after security footage revealed that the nine-year-old did not lay a hand on her.

However, during the rally Monday Jeremiah’s mother Someko Bellille and other community members called for an investigation into Klein’s actions.
