Karens are an insulting term used to refer to an entitled white woman who demands immediate action against a minor infraction just as quickly as calling the police on Black people. These individuals frequently roam stores and restaurants looking for opportunities to attack workers or show their sense of entitlement; recently they have weaponized race against others during coronavirus pandemic outbreaks by demanding everyone wear masks.
Popular Karen memes often revolve around their inability to abide by simple rules, from complaining about not being permitted to eat in the cafeteria to their children being denied play dates due to wearing masks. Karens are well known for not speaking clearly or following instructions correctly, using sarcasm and racism against people of color as often as possible.
Karens can easily be identified by their hairstyle – typically an inverted bob that’s longer in the back than in front. Additionally, they typically sport chunky unblended highlights for an eye-catching tiger stripe effect and usually wear their locks either messy ponytail styled into a bun or tied back for an unintentionally exaggerated effect. They often carry expensive Coach or Dooney and Burke handbags and wear tie back tops designed to cover their lack of exercise but instead emphasize it further.
Karen may become frustrated at a restaurant for not serving her food quickly enough or at a store for not carrying what she needs in terms of size or color. She may have an exaggerated inflated sense of self, believing herself more important than everyone else, as well as being anti-vax due to underlying health concerns such as asthma or “mask-acne.” She could even argue for having control over whether or not wearing masks due to asthma symptoms and “mask-acne.”
Jason displays his hacking prowess by breaking into Karen’s Facebook account – an act which has since gone viral with over 8 million views! This video has gone viral.
Denise Richards was widely seen as the face of Karen in the 1990s and 2000s-era screen goddesses, but recently her image is being recreated via viral videos showing white women misbehaving badly – whether calling police on Black people without justification, spray-painting monuments without authorization, calling the cops on them for no good reason, etc. They always get what they deserve — instant karma.
“Karens in the Wild” videos can be found all over the internet, with the latest one showing an individual at a Ross clothing store who can be heard shouting racist slurs at its manager and refusing to leave despite polite requests by staff – she then shouts back “You ignorant mother f*cking bitch is what you are!” before leaving without further comment or reason from staff members. The shopper then flees, leaving no trace behind them.
Karens in the Wild videos often contain an overtly racial aspect, yet there’s another subset which features women who behave in ways which smack of entitlement – hence why it has its own subreddit, “Karens in the Mall”.
“Karen from Starbucks” has become perhaps the most infamous representative of this category. She became embroiled in an altercation with store clerk after they told her she could no longer purchase beer due to coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
A shoplifter was recently arrested for disorderly conduct, yet still made quite the scene while being detained. While being handcuffed, she began throwing her personal items around violently before eventually sharing the video online and becoming viral overnight.
Another video featuring Karen from Starbucks surfaced in June 2020. In this clip, a woman known as “Karen Rapkin” can be seen spitting at an African American teenager without cause in Wisconsin town and prompting police response; her reaction exemplifying classic Karening behaviour where white people attempt to exert moral authority over others through coercive means.
