15 'Karens' That Seriously Need To Sit Down

A Karen is an overbearing, typically middle-aged woman, who thinks that the whole world revolves around her. We've all encountered a Karen at some point in our lives, and if you haven't — just wait.

Below is a list of 15 examples of Karens who need to sit down and shut up. They bring nothing to the world except misery and negativity, albeit in an often humorous and awe-inspiring kind of way.

Karen goes irate over the neighbor's landscaping (or lack thereof).

As if this person had the nerve to write their neighbor this novel of a note, and then didn't even have the guts to sign it with their real name. Not only is this person a jerk, but they're also spineless.

As far as I can tell, the only abomination is YOU.

It disgusts me to think that in 2022, there are still close-minded ignorant people that not only think this way but who also have the audacity to leave such a hateful comment on a public forum.

This Karen claimed to have allergies while shopping for groceries, without a mask.

I am not a violent person by any means. That being said, if some stranger trying to prove their own political agenda started randomly coughing on me while I was shopping — I would go Bruce Lee all over their butt.

Don't tell a racist Karen when and where to wash her hands.

You won't be told what to do in the USA? Do you pay your taxes; do you stop at red lights? I'm pretty sure what irks you isn't being told what to do, it's the fact that a visible minority is the one making the request.

This Karen refused to wear a facemask upon her Uber driver's request.

How embarrassing! People need to smarten up and realize that when you're in an Uber — you do what you're told to do. Especially when it's as simple of a request such as putting gon a face mask.

Christian Karen gets put in handcuffs for pushing the police too far.

I'm pretty sure that this Karen actually doesn't have any idea what the term "common law" means. The fact that she gets put in handcuffs makes me believe that there is justice in this world, after all.

This Karen was kicked off her flight for refusing to wear a mask and calling a flight attendant a "bitch."

I have so much respect for this airline manager. Not only did he have his employee's back, but he managed to remain calm, cool, and collected. The fact that he also managed to throw a dig at Spirit is just the icing on the cake.

Karen threatens to call the police on their neighbor for putting up a Biden/Harris sign on their lawn.

I can't be sure, but I think it's a safe assumption to make that this woman attempting to break down her neighbor's door in the middle of the afternoon is more than likely a Trump supporter.

Just when you think you've found rock bottom...

This is offensive on so many levels I don't even know where to begin. All I can say is that karma comes calling for everyone eventually, and when it does — you better believe it's going to collect dividends from this Karen.

This Karen tried to call her city council rep when a neighborhood family had a yard sale.

How can your life be so uneventful, so unimportant, that you literally have nothing better to do than to attempt to ruin a perfect stranger's yard sale? Who in their right mind would ever want to do such a thing?

Not on my vacation, Karen.

You've got to be joking. This plane was nearly in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and then this Karen ruins everyone's trip by forcing the plane to turn around and go all the way back to the airport?! The passengers must have been furious.

If only Karen's would go extinct...

I wish that people with this ignorant frame of mind would go extinct. The blatant racism is so beyond repugnant that it's enough to make you want to spit. Her cartography skills clearly need work as well.

Karen is wondering why a toddler is driving a Power Wheels car without a driver's license.

Maybe because it isn't actually a real car, Karen! Would you call the police if you saw a group of kids riding by you on their bicycles? Wait, what am I thinking — of course, you would! Just move on and go about your day.

Karen attempts to ruin a skateboarder's day.

What's most funny about this video, aside from Karen realizing that she's utterly powerless, is when the kid starts mirroring her mannerisms and yells incoherently in her face. Was it the most mature response? Of course not — but it was funny.

How small and hateful must your heart be?

As if this kid doesn't already have it bad enough, not being able to see their friends on their birthday, but you're going to try and add insult to injury by pulling a stunt like this? What is your damage, Karen? I genuinely want to know.
