Maybe you’ve heard of BBQ Becky and Permit Patty, but who is Karen? Karen is a white woman who oozes privilege, which she uses to her advantage by making her self a victim in situations. Oh… and 9 times out of 10, she also tends to be racist.
The most recent Karen to go viral is fellow Karen, Amy Cooper, who doesn’t want to walk her dog with its lease in Central Park. Christian Cooper, a birdwatcher who also happens to be a black man, asked her to lease her dog, per the park rules. She refuses then proceeds to tell him that she is going to call the police and “…tell them there’s an African-American man threatening my life.” Why is she doing this you might ask? It gives her power.
In the 24 hours after, Karen lost her dog and her job. Damn. Karma works fast.
Check out the video below for yourself.
Oh, when Karens take a walk with their dogs off leash in the famous Bramble in NY’s Central Park, where it is clearly posted on signs that dogs MUST be leashed at all times, and someone like my brother (an avid birder) politely asks her to put her dog on the leash. pic.twitter.com/3YnzuATsDm
