Emily Powers is the sixteen-year-old Ohio teen who, by her own admission, is the girl who threw the shovel. In a viral Vine sensation, Powers was fighting with friend, Miranda Fugate, when she ended it by throwing a shovel at her old pal.
Here’s what you need to know about her:
1. The Fight Happened at Emily’s House
From the full-version of the video you can see that the fight was prearranged and not spontaneous. The fight took place at Emily’s home in Ohio with Ms. Powers constantly telling Miranda to “get off her lawn” and taunting her with claims of “this is my house.”
2. She Threatened to Shoot Miranda
The fight comes to a head when Emily tells Miranda she’s going to shoot her with a BB gun. As Emily goes to her house to get it, Miranda chases her, Emily responded with the shovel hit heard round the world. In response, one of Miranda’s friends attempts to attack Emily with Miranda crying in the background. Kids today.
On the bright side my shovel is alright
