The company, Franklin Templeton, initially released a statement announcing its decision to place Amy Cooper on administrative leave following the incident that played out in the viral video.

To catch up on what went down, On Monday, the 25th of May, Amy Cooper was with her dog, without a leash on it, in Ramble Central Park, where the rule says all dogs must be put on a leash. Christopher Cooper, a birdie (bird watcher) in the park told Amy, politely, to put a leash on the dog, and even offered the pet a treat.
