Restauranteur Svitlana Flom says 911 call video ‘twisted the entire thing’

Socialite and restaurateur Svitlana Flom risked becoming “the next Amy Cooper” — the woman who lost her job after calling the cops on an African-American bird watcher in Central Park — after a video of Flom dialing 911 went viral.

But the Maison Vivienne co-owner tells Page Six the video was edited to make her “look like a racist.”

Janae Garcia posted the clip of her confrontation with Flom in an Upper West Side park Friday, claiming in the caption that Flom “felt the need to not only approach me but call the cops multiple times on me!” Garcia claimed that Flom first reported her to cops for allegedly smoking in public, “but by the 3rd call, it was bcuz [sic] I was ‘threatening her & her children.’ ” Garcia added, “While giving my description, she exaggerated her story & made it seem like I was the aggressor.

But Flom — who’s pregnant and was visiting the park with her kids — alleges that the face-off began when she “told [Garcia and a friend] they’re not supposed to be smoking [weed] and [Garcia], jumped off [her seat], ran in my face. She didn’t care I was pregnant, or that I had two little kids.”

Flom claims Garcia called her a “bitch” and ranted aggressively at her. She said that she called the police not because of the weed, but “about the woman being in my face.”

Flom added that Garcia recorded for 45 minutes, but only posted “tidbits” of the tape.

“She put her narrative on it to make me look like a racist,” she claimed. “She twisted the entire thing like she’s some poor girl sitting alone on a bench and I’m white trash, harassing her for no reason.” She demanded that Garcia “post the whole” video unedited.

Flom said she woke up late Saturday night to threats, including a text message seen by Page Six that read, “We will decapitate your red neck ass b itch!”

Garcia did not get back to us when we reached out.
