AS FAR as Yvonne Lorde is concerned, the video which went viral last week showing her daughter allegedly hitting an elderly nursing home resident does not demonstrate abusive behaviour.
“She told me she was only skylarking with the old woman,” an upset Lorde told the SUNDAY SUN even as her daughter, 37-year-old Arielle King, a nursing auxiliary, stands charged with assault.
The video, which attracted over two million views in one day, was removed from Facebook on Thursday.
Lorde believes that her daughter was “set up”, saying King only “tapped” 84-year-old Jasmin Hall on her head and on her foot with two sheets of paper. “People are saying it was a Bible and some saying it is a diary. She look like she could take a lash with a Bible?” King said.
