A racist Californian woman has renounced her claims that she was the victim of an 'un-identified black male' after video evidence produced by a Japanese business man clearly shows that it was just her own shadow.
Leni Riefenstahl , 26, from Oakland California gained statewide attention after appearing on a TV News channel making accusations of a ' large, thin black man' stalking her every move.
The ditzy blonde garnered sympathy from fearful middle-class white folk with her tears and her tale.
Other women came forward and claimed that they too had been victims of the black stranger - with reported sightings in all brightly lit areas.
Mel Gibson even offered to round up some friends to form a posse to 'protect' the Aryan maiden.
But her story was false and the chance recording by a Japanese businessman pervert of Miss Riefenstahl - who had been secretly recording blonde-haired westerners in public showers with his cell phone - revealed the truth.
"We noticed from the grainy footage, that Miss Riefenstahl only freaked out when she moved into areas with strong overhead lighting", chuckled police Chief Wiggum,
"She started screaming loudly and pointing at the floor. She went really crazy when she stood directly beneath a light and four shadows were cast - she'd scream stuff like "oh no, there's four of them big black men!", and crap like that".
Miss Riefenstahl, who is life-long member of the KKK and a Hilary Clinton supporter, has now accepted that it was just her shadow but has dismissed claims that she is a racist bitch.
"I have no problems with black men", she said, "I just don't think it's right that I should have a black shadow. I want a nice, lily-white shadow. That's not too much to ask?".
