2020 has unexpectedly turned into one the worst years in quite a long time, it started with Australia's burning hellfire, then we had to fight against systemic racism and now the whole world is pretty much on the brink of economic collapse. Due to all of this, it has become pretty obvious that we have a lot on our hands and we need a lot of time to recover from all of this.
Most people are trying to make the best out of this situation and are cooperating as much as they could until we finally triumph against these unfortunate circumstances. However, there's a certain category of people that were given the name "Karens" that don't seem to understand that we're living in exceptional times and that we're all equally suffering because of what's happening.
An incident in Victoria this week is the reason behind this announcement after an Australia woman, who was dubbed a "Karen," refused to wear a mask and was recorded harassing Bunnings staff.
There are so many GENUINELY marginalised people doing it tough right now/always, & you wanna give free pizza to... Karen? This misses the mark completely. Give pizza to people in poverty, people who can’t get a wage subsidy... people who are ACTUALLY struggling. pic.twitter.com/Pdd54DsqO4— Alanah Parkin 🏳️🌈 (@AlanahParkin) July 28, 2020
“Not all Karens” reeeeally isn’t the hot take you think it is. People are holding entitled white women to account for dangerous & often supremacist behaviour in the wake of some significant social movements like BLM & instead of supporting those movements you wanna do... this. 🙃— Alanah Parkin 🏳️🌈 (@AlanahParkin) July 28, 2020
most of the time “Karens” are entitled privileged white women. If a few people actually called Karen can’t handle the meme of it they should try handling 400 years of oppression. They should try watching their people killed by police officers solely for their skin.— ariel reyes (@aramreyess) July 29, 2020
this is like saying “gee straight white men are really having a tough time atm here’s free shit for ur already privileged asses” i’m bamboozled— ariel reyes (@aramreyess) July 29, 2020
My name is Karen. Please don’t waste a pizza on me, MUCH rather you donate pizza (or, $) to local orgs and charities supporting those actually affected by the 2020 crises.— Karen Freilich (@KarenFreilich) July 29, 2020

Domino's replied to this tweet by saying:
"We do give hundreds of thousands of pizzas to key groups of people who need it, including our feeding the frontline activity which sees us donate thousands of pizzas to the hospitals, medical workers, and the homeless."
As of now, nothing has been posted yet to Domino's Australia page.
