You’ve watched the video – now watch the SNL spoof.

In the original viral video, a white woman later identified as Alison Ettel confronts an 8-year-old girl selling bottled water in San Francisco. As the girl’s mother films, Ettel claims the girl is breaking the law and appears to call the police. The girl’s mother, identified only as Instagram user ladyesowavy, shared footage of the incident Saturday, stoking internet outrage. Though Ettel insisted she never actually made the call, ladyesowavy dubbed the woman ‘Permit Patty,’ and the name stuck.

The next day, “Saturday Night Live” cast member Cecily Strong teamed up with fellow actress and friend Rashida Olayiwola to film a skit mocking Ettel. Strong, playing Ettel, threatens to call the cops on plants, a black dog and a toilet, all for using her water. Olayiwola is the unseen camerawoman.

To many local viewers, the “Permit Patty” clip may recall another viral incident, in which a white woman called the police after seeing two black men using a barbecue near Oakland’s Lake Merritt. The woman, now known as “BBQ Becky,” made national headlines and was spoofed on SNL.

Ettel said she has received death threats and texts with sexually violent messages, along with people trying to get into her building to confront her. The San Francisco Police Department said no officers have recently been in contact with an 8-year-old girl.

“It was wrong, and I wish I could take it back,” Ettel said Saturday. “Believe me, I wish I never had done that.”
