The mum who went viral after driving her Range Rover into Insulate Britain protesters has been criticised for selling merchandise to profit from the incident.
Sherrilyn Speid, 34, now branding herself as “Range Rover Mum”, has defended her new venture glamorising and monetising road rage as “female empowerment”. But dozens of social media suers have called the stunt
Essex Police told The Big Issue no charges have been made over the incident at this stage, but that a woman attended a voluntary interview to give an account.
“This is not female empowering merch, it’s opportunism after an aggressive act,” wrote one social media user.
“@LandRoverUKPR @LandRover_UK You might want to check up on Range Rover Mum’s exploitation of your trademark following her violent attack and abuse of peaceful protestors?,” said another.
After the news of the cash-in, Insulate Britain reiterated its commitment to “nonviolent civil resistance”.
