The case against Amy Cooper -- dubbed Central Park Karen -- will go forward as planned, despite victim Christian Cooper's refusal to cooperate with the Manhattan district attorney.

Amy Cooper was charged last week with filing a false report against Christian who asked her to leash her dog in a section of Central Park where he was bird watching.

In the May 25th 911 call, she claimed, "There's an African-American man threatening my life."

But Christian doesn't want her prosecuted, he has previously stated.

"She's already paid a steep price. That's not enough of a deterrent to others? Bringing her more misery just seems like piling on."

Amy was fired from her job and briefly lost custody of her rescue dog after the video of her incident with Christian went viral.

TMZ reports that the D.A.'s Office would like Christian to cooperate, but in this case, it's not necessary -- because he's technically not the victim, the city is.

If convicted, she faces a maximum sentence of 1 year in jail.

The woman who was widely criticized for calling 911 on a Black man in Central Park was charged with a hate crime and filing a false police report.

But the Manhattan district attorney will have a hard time making the charges stick. The victim, Christian Cooper, is not cooperating with the prosecution's case against Amy Cooper.

Christian previously condemned the "cancel culture" that destroyed Amy Cooper's life after his video of the incident went viral in May.

Amy lost her high-paying job and was publicly shamed for claiming an "African American man" was threatening her in the park.

Christian defended Amy again on Tuesday in a statement explaining why he won't cooperate.

"On the one hand, she's already paid a steep price. That's not enough of a deterrent to others? Bringing her more misery just seems like piling on... So if the DA feels the need to pursue charges, he should pursue charges. But he can do that without me."

Christian's decision not to cooperate drew disbelief, anger and indignation on Twitter.

"Looks like dude don't want to mess up his relationships with other white people......Zaddy must have got in his ear," Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed tweeted.

Others expressed their bitter disappointment in Christian Cooper.

A white woman who called 911 on a Black man for asking her to leash her dog has apologized for her insensitivity and poor impulse control.

Amy Cooper, who was dubbed "Karen" on Twitter.com, told CNN she wanted to apologize to "everyone" who was offended by her actions.

According to Urbandictionary.com, "Karen" is a pejorative term, similar to "Becky", that expresses contempt or disapproval of white women who fit a pattern of socially disagreeable behavior.

"I'm not racist," she said. "I did not mean to harm that man in any way."

Amy Cooper said she was walking her dog between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. Monday in an area of NY's Central Park called The Ramble, when she encountered Christian Cooper (no relation), who asked her to leash her dog.

Central Park policy requires dogs to be leashed at all times. But Amy took offense at Christian's demands and she called 911 to report she felt threatened.

Christian recorded the encounter because things tend to go left whenever the police get involved.

By the time police arrived on the scene, both Coopers and the dog were gone. But Christian's video went viral on social media, sparking outrage.

Amy Cooper lost her job and gave up her dog amid the chaos. She told CNN her entire life is destroyed.

"I think I was just scared," Amy told CNN. "When you're alone in the Ramble, you don't know what's happening. It's not excusable, it’s not defensible."

When asked if he’d accept her apology, Christian told CNN he would "if it's genuine and if she plans on keeping her dog on a leash in the Ramble going forward, then we have no issues with each other."
