You got the wrong Jacqueline Guzman; Suffolk biz owner is not TikTok ranting NYC actress

|

It’s not her!

Huntington small business owner Jacqueline Guzman wants the world to know that she is not the actress Jacqueline Guzman who called it “f—king ridiculous” that New York City streets were closed during fallen NYPD Officer Jason Rivera’s funeral on Friday.

The 25-year-old youth gymnastics coach who owns the home-based Sister Sweets with her sister Cristal has been the target of thousands of threats and hateful messages on her personal and business social media accounts from people angry over the vitriol that the city-based Guzman expressed in a TikTok video during Rivera’s funeral service at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

Weeping throughout her own TikTok video that she posted on her business Sister Sweets’ Facebook and Instagram accounts, the Long Island-based Guzman pleaded for the attacks on her to stop.

“This video is to clarify that I am not the Jacqueline Guzman in that awful video,” Guzman, the Huntington business owner, said. “I have been receiving multiple calls, and threats and messages. Please stop targeting me and attacking me. I personally cannot handle it.”

In a separate TikTok video posted on Sister Sweets’ Instagram account, Guzman’s sister Cristal notes that the hate messages and threats were coming in by the second.

In her three-minute video, Cristal Guzman thanks her family, friends, customers and fellow business owners who supported the sisters over the weekend “and had our backs.”

“That amount of support truly got us through the day,” added Cristal.

Another Sister Sweets Instagram post, headlined “Need to Clarify,” further makes it clear that Jacqueline Guzman in Huntington is not the actress and that the sisters have nothing to do with the woman.

“Please note that we have been mistakenly & maliciously tagged in a hateful post,” reads the post, which includes photos illustrating that the actress Jacqueline Guzman is a different person from the one who sells chocolate arrangements from her home in Suffolk County.

“We support all law enforcement & our community. We do not align with her messaging, we find it despicable,” the post continues.

The sisters plan on moving their chocolate business to a brick-and-mortar store in Huntington this spring.

The actress Jacqueline Guzman was fired on Saturday by her theater company Face to Face films over the online rant that she deleted after it went viral.

“We do not need to shut down most of Lower Manhattan because one cop died for probably doing his job incorrectly,” the actress said in the clip, which appeared on TikTok under the handle @vinylboobs.

Speaking through a mask, the actress was visibly upset that Manhattan streets were closed because of the thousands of uniformed city, suburban and out-of-state cops lined up along the funeral procession on Fifth Avenue. “They kill people who are under 22 every single day for no good reason and we don’t shut down the city for them,” the actress Guzman said on the clip.

Rivera, 22, was shot and killed on Jan. 21 while responding to a domestic violence call in Harlem. Fellow officer Wilbert Mora, 27, was also shot. He died four days later.

While the last few days have taken a toll on the sisters, they both expressed immense gratitude for the outpouring of support that they have received.

“There was SO MANY of you who really showed up for us in a time where we felt like everything we worked SO HARD for was over,” reads a note from the sisters on a Sisters Sweet Instagram post that went up on Sunday.

“We are tired and it’s not over yet but we WILL get through this and we are forever grateful for our amazing Sweets Family!”
