In the video, the woman can be heard saying, “You didn’t have to get out of your damn car. You’re a black man approaching a white woman.”

Owens called the lady a “Karen” in an Instagram caption, and the former recipient jumped on TMZ Sports to discuss the conflict.

He said it could have all turned out much worse.

“I could have died,” he said. “Honestly, I could have died and the storyline would have been completely different.”

“If the wrong type of police came out, if they were given the wrong type of information,” the Hall of Famer added. “Her, you saw the video, she started crying, you never know how that situation could have changed.”

While no citations have been issued, Owens, 48, still believes the woman in the video should face repercussions, and wants Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody to look into the situation.

“I hope the people here in Florida are watching what happened,” Owens said. “I’m hoping she can maybe address this and see what can be done because like I said this could have ended very, very badly and as I said this could have been a situation where maybe you guys weren’t talking to me live here today, but talk about me in a different way.”
