The very rich, seemingly very spoiled and apparently very racist daughter of ex-Washington Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke was arrested yesterday following an altercation on New Year’s Eve.
And we’re talking about one doozy of an altercation.
According to TMZ, People Magazine and other outlets, the ugly incident took place at Caravaggio, a restaurant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
It also took place on New Year’s Eve.
Cooke was allegedly waiting in line to get her coat when she grew irritating, yelling at a 77-year old in front of her:
“Hurry up, Jew. I got places to be.”
In response, the woman’s son, Matthew Haberkorn, followed the 29-year old Cooke outside and confronted her about this inappropriate comment.
And Cooke stood quietly, listened to the man and apologized.
She reportedly attacked Haberkorn with her glass purse, opening up two huge wounds on his face.
There’s actually video of the beating, in which you can hear Matthew say “She just f*cking hit me!”
Cooke fires back: “You called me a f-cking bitch. You called me a cunt.”
And then Matthew again: “You called me a f-cking Jew.”
Haberkorn also shared two photos of his lacerations on social media shortly after everything went down.
Cooke and her boyfriend eventually left the scene, but authorities later arrested her for felony assault.
In addition to the physical harm caused to Haberkorn’s head, his attorney says the normally “mellow Californian” is “very distressed.”
Translation: he will be filing a major lawsuit against the heiress.
“The damage was what you saw in the photo, but it goes beyond that,” Andrew T. Miltenberg tells People Magazine.
The lawyer adds that Haberkorn intends to press charges and sue Cooke civilly for what they allege was a hate crime and civil rights violation.
Jack Kent Cooke passed away in April of 1997 after having owned the Redskins and, at other times, the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Kings.
He left behind about $ 1 billion in assets, according to the Washington Post.
However, he only provided his daughter with a $ 50,000 annual stipend, prompting her to file a lawsuit against her father’s estate in 2007 because she wanted more money each year.
She sounds like a real peach.

In the two weeks since Donald Trump was elected president, a shocking spike in hate crimes across America has been widely attributed to real estate mogul and political neophyte’s racially charged campaign trail rhetoric.
While Trump called for his followers to “stop it” during a recent 60 Minutes interview, the fact that the President-elect seems to be more irritated by a call for unity from the cast of Hamilton than by acts of racial hatred committed in his name was not lost on many.
Yesterday, video of Neo-Nazis giving “hail Trump” salutes at a rally in Washington, D.C. surfaced online.
The clip garnered coverage from all major media outlets and brought hate to the mainstream in a disturbing fashion.
Perhaps because they’re so unaccustomed to engaging in serious discussions about radical fringe hate groups, many television pundits seemed ill-equipped to cover the disturbing speech of “alt-right” leader Richard Spencer.
It’s perhaps that unfamiliarity with such subject matter that led to this astonishing misstep by CNN:
As you can see, the news network ran a lower-screen chyron that referenced Spencer’s question of whether or not “Jews are people.”
The legitimization of such a question is considered horrifically anti-Semitic, and the network was rightfully called out for its inappropriate graphic by many on social media, including CNN’s own Jake Tapper.
The chyron appeared on screen during Tapper’s own show, but the longtime correspondent is currently on vacation.
Nevertheless, he took to social media to blast the network for its tone deaf coverage, and to assure fans that while he had nothing to do with the offensive graphic, he would also not be dodging responsibility.
“I’m off this week and I’m furious about that chyron and my staff has heard from me. Unacceptable,” Tapper wrote on Twitter.
“The chyron was abhorrent and I am trying to deal with it. Obviously I take responsibility but my being off is not irrelevant.”
Jim Sciutto, who was filling in as host, also acknolwledged the offensive nature of the graphic:
“The banner — which we don’t write from the chair — was out of line,” Sciutto tweeted.
The official CNN Twitter account issued an apology just moments after the chyron aired:
“It was poor judgment and we very much regret it and apologize.”
Tapper has been held to task by social media users who have been quick to point out that he bears responsibility for all content that airs during a show with his name in the title.
Tapper did not disagree, but reminded fans that he was not aware such a graphic would be used, and was in no position to stop it.
