Charles Ramsey, Neighbor Who Saved Amanda Berry, Becomes Viral Internet Star

by at . Comments

Charles Ramsey, a Cleveland dishwasher who happened to be in the right place at the right time to help rescue Amanda Berry, has become a viral video star.

In a WEWS-TV interview candidly and colorfully recounting how he found three missing women and freed them from captivity, Ramsey's own words say it all:

Some of his best quotes:

  • "I was sitting there, eating my McDonald's. I heard screaming. I went outside and saw this girl going nuts trying to get out of her house."
  • "Bro, I knew something was wrong when a pretty little white girl ran into a black man’s arms. Something is wrong here."
  • "You've got some big testicles to pull this kind of thing off, bro, because we see this dude every day. I mean every day."
  • "There’s nothing exciting about him. Well, until today."

Soon after Ramsey helped Amanda Berry escape, police arrested three Cleveland kidnapping suspects, all brothers, in the high-profile abductions.

The women vanished from 2002-2004 in separate incidents, but were all found alive Monday in a stunning story that has gained national attention.

Ramsey, while just a side plot in the saga, nevertheless has been the talk of the web. He even inspired a number of Tweets from celebs in recent days:

Actress Valerie Bertinelli: "I think I'm in love, Charles Ramsey. #Cleveland #Hero."

Comedian and actor Patton Oswalt: "Dear Charles Ramsey: I am not a little pretty white girl, but I totally want to run into your black arms. #hero."

McDonald's: "Way to go Charles Ramsey - we'll be in touch."

You are a typical, low class, low income idiot, upset about the loss of your white privilege, who fall into the GOP's standard group of supporters destined to constantly vote against your own interests. He is a hero of all rape victims, who know that most people will not help you in order to protect themselves.
He also stated quite clearly that he did not want payment.
