According to the Miami Herald, Hawaii police officers have arrested OnlyFans model Courtney Clenney on suspicion of murder in the stabbing death of her boyfriend, Christian Obumseli. If Obumseli had been a Black woman, her brother says, she would have gotten her punishment sooner.
According to the report, Clenney was being held at East Hawaii Detention Center for substance abuse rehabilitation and mental evaluation after the stabbing of Obumseli. The police in Hawaii say she was detained because she matched the description of a suspect wanted for second-degree murder with a deadly weapon out of Miami-Dade County, Florida. Clenney’s lawyer claims his client acted in self-defense when he was stabbed.
I can’t believe it, especially considering that we helped with the investigation and even offered to turn her in if she was arrested. Our goal is to have her name cleared in court,” Frank Prieto told the Florida media.
To learn more about what happened, check out the Miami Herald’s account:
Clenney was finally apprehended after a four-month investigation by Miami homicide detectives and prosecutors into the domestic violence murder of her boyfriend in a high-end Edgewater apartment. The defense attorney for Clenney maintained that she had a right to take deadly action in this case because of the danger she faced. Obumseli’s family demanded Clenney’s arrest in the days following his death, despite their lack of belief that he posed any danger to them. She was arrested for domestic battery in Las Vegas once during their less-than-two-year relationship, and Austin, Texas police were called to the couple’s residence on multiple occasions.
Jeffrey Obumseli, Obumseli’s older brother, speculated that things would have gotten worse had Clenney been Black.
It’s crystal clear that Courtney is receiving preferential treatment as a result of her status as a wealthy White woman. Jeffrey said on Instagram that the investigating detective “prematurely concluded this was not a crime of violence” within 24 hours of Toby’s death. In a press conference after the incident, Obumseli’s family also voiced their concerns about racial bias.
Responses to allegations of white privilege and bias in the treatment of Clenney were mixed. Due to his history of social media posts attacking Black women, it appears that Black Twitter is not eager to rally behind Obumseli.
So Christian Toby Obumseli was spreading anti-black women propaganda and praising only white women online, and then a white woman killed him, and white police officers refused to look into the case.
horrible tale, but it’s wild how the cosmos can sometimes work like that — (@itssmeclarine) April 7, 2022
However, could Jeffrey possibly be right? Think about Ma’Khia Bryant. Allegedly, her foster sisters attacked her while she was defending herself with a knife. However, the police gave her very little time to react after spotting the weapon in her hand before opening fire and killing her. On the other hand, Clenney survived long enough to receive medical attention and then an arrest warrant.
The ultimate determination of her guilt or innocence rests in the hands of the jury.
