2020 is the year of the “KAREN” phenomenon and in this episode a white woman confronts a Black delivery driver outside of a Westwood apartment building on Thursday, preventing him from doing his job.
The Urban dictionary defines KAREN as the stereotypical name associated with rude, obnoxious and insufferable middle aged white women.
Karens take everything wrong with the typical over entitled western woman and crank it up by several thousand percent. They are a mutated subspecies that descends from the Soccer Mom, and have many of their traits. Such as a short temper, a crown bowl haircut, an unnecessarily large SUV to take her kids to soccer practice and be a menace on the road, etc etc. But Karens have developed their own unique characteristics /antics as well. Including but not limited to;
-Reveling in making the life or retail workers a living hell by constantly making a scene over nothing and demanding to “speak to the manager” (a near universal battle cry among Karens).
-Threatening to sue someone for a minor misdemeanor they may or may not have committed and may or may not have even involved Karen at all.
-Treating the drive thru line like the set of a Mad Max film by cutting in line and honking at anyone who tries to get in. Even willing to dent other people’s cars to save 45 seconds in getting her $1 muffin. (Karens in this situation may or may not ask to speak to the drive thru worker’s manager and / or threaten to sue the drivers of the car she just rammed.)
Once the coronavirus pandemic is over, perhaps scientists can research and develop a vaccine for Karens………
