Cornerstore Caroline has been forgiven.

After initially saying he doesn’t forgive Teresa Klein (Cornerstore Caroline) for falsely accusing him of sexual assault, 9-year-old Jeremiah Harvey has changed his mind.

During an appearance on Good Morning America, Harvey and his mother Someko Bellille spoke on the incident and how it has affected them since.

“It’s still hard because lately on my mind, like, I can’t think nothing but this,” Harvey said. “I felt humiliated because of the way she was acting. I started to tear up.”

Bellille also argued against Klein’s claim that her 911 call wasn’t racially-motivated, saying that it was.

“She’s on the phone and she’s saying that I’m a white woman, that I’m standing in front of this deli…stating that this black mom and her two black kids are out here and that the son sexually assaulted me,” Bellille said. “She said, ‘black child, black mother and white woman.'”

Harvey was also asked if he forgave Klein to which he responded: “Yes. Yes, I do.”

“Friendship is the key, it changed my whole mind of accepting the apology that she gave me,” the child added.

According to KTLA 5, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams is calling on the NYPD to investigate Klein and determine whether or not she broke the law, comparing the incident to a ‘modern-day Emmett Till moment.”
