If you didn't already know, it kinda sucks to get called 'Karen'. What used to be a normal name for middle-aged women of anything color or creed has quickly turned to a major shut-down.
The Karen of today is generally white, aged 45-65, has a blonde shirt bobbed haircut (this is common but not a necessity) covers her house in wall-decals that say things like, 'live, laugh, love' or 'gather' and who can often be found at restaurants and stores demanding to be 'speak to the manager'.
Karen is now used by young and old to describe such a woman and this kinda sucks if your name is Karen. Below are 13 Karens reacting to being called 'Karen. Check it out... and no, you can't speak to the manager.
Does anyone else think the ‘Karen’ slur is woman hating and based on class prejudice?

“Karen” was a term created *specifically by Black women* to talk about white women’s interpersonal + state violence against us and our communities: calling the police on us for getting coffee, threatening to have us fired, talking down to us at work (where we’re now “essential”).

Not sure which is more hysterical, the concept of “Karen” being a slur or someone with the net worth & resources you have calling something classist.
Thanks for the laugh, Karen.

Trying to claim that ‘Karen’ is a slur is the whitest white woman thing I’ve seen yet.

Rich people claiming they’re being oppressed because of classism is the literal equivalent of those racists decrying ethnic replacement and racism against whites because someone accuses them of not using enough spices.

“Karen” is a description of a particular type of white woman.
Everyone knows what a “Karen” is and why they are called a Karen.
If you don’t want to be called a Karen, don’t act like a Karen.
If you’re worried about being called a Karen, maybe the problem is you.

Imagine living in the world where entitled middle aged princesses have to be a protected class because they didn’t get their way in the store.

Actually, it’s based on white women avoiding accountability for their racism.
