Sweet Brown is an Oklahoma City resident who was interviewed by local news station KFOR News Channel 4 after evacuating from her apartment building that was set on fire. Her emphatic testimony of the chaotic scene quickly led to massive exposure on YouTube, similar to those of Antoine Dodson and Eccentric Witness Lady.

On the morning of April 7th, 2012, a three-alarm fire broke out at the Chateau DeVille Apartments an Oklahoma City apartment complex. The fire was out by 5:40 a.m. damage to the building is estimated at $45,000, and a cause is not yet known. Five apartments were affected by the fire and an additional 44 did not have electricity following the blaze. The local station KFOR News Channel 4 was among the first to arrive on the scene and interview one of the displaced residents Sweet Brown. During the interview, she stated that she had woken up to get a “cold pop” when she thought someone was grilling before she realized there was a fire. Brown then proceeded to run out of the apartment without shoes. In describing the heavy presence of smoke from the fire, she uttered “ain’t nobody got time for that!” which became one of the more memorable lines.
