The Coronavirus Pandemic Has Caused A Resurgence In ‘Karens’ Across The World…
‘Karen‘ is the name given to those obnoxious and rude suburban moms we all encounter at some point. They are arrogant, loud and have no regard for your store policies. They feel victimized by any rule they have to follow and only care for themselves. That’s why everyone LOVES poking fun at them!
Update –The Karens Going Wild Instagram account has now gone private to prevent spam and hacking, so we’re linking to their TikTok account instead.
My new favorite Instagram account is Karens Going Wild, and clearly many people feel the same. Although the account is relatively new, Karens Going Wild has 1.4 MILLION followers and counting!
The theme of the account is simple — post videos of Karen encounters from all around the world to expose their awfulness. The videos are cringe-worthy and will definitely make you angry. However, you won’t be able to look away from the craziness.
If you’re not familiar with the popular meme, you might be wondering …
What is a ‘Karen’?
A ‘Karen’ is the entitled woman, not always white (but if we’re being honest, mostly white), that berates store employees when they don’t get their way. Karens always want to speak to a manager and love threatening to get you fired.
They seem to think they are above rules and sometimes even the law. Karens sometimes hate when you don’t speak English in their presence, and most recently, will NOT wear a face mask just because you told them to.
In fact, thanks to the current pandemic, the Karen meme has become more popular than ever. They are exploding everyone around country because stores have the audacity to implement rules on them.
The best part about most Karen encounters is how furious they become when they realize someone is recording their outbursts. It’s almost as if they immediately realize how awful they’re being once they see a camera on them.
A word of advice for anyone who doesn’t want to inadvertently become a Karen: just don’t feel entitled to special treatment. It’s that simple.
Give Karens Going Wild a follow. You will not be disappointed — and if you are, we’d like to speak to your manager. Lastly, if you’re craving even more chaos in your feed, check out the sister account, Kevins Going Wild — the male counterpart!
