If there’s one thing you can count on local media doing, its finding Black people to exploit for viral news stories. First, there was Antoine Dodson, then Kimberly “Sweet Brown” Wilkins and now there’s Michelle Dobyne. Michelle is a trending topic thanks to an interview with Oklahoma’s News on 6 where she recounted a fire that broke out in her apartment building.

Michelle says she was in the middle of whipping up some breakfast for her children when someone alerted her to the emergency. “I got my three kids and we bounced out! We not gonna be in no fire … not TODAY!” she tells local reporter, Ethan Pierce.
