Not content to let entitled women become the embodiment of privilege during COVID-19, men have released their own version of Karen: Ken.
Take, for example, this man shopping at a Smart & Final grocery store. Video surfaced of the customer having an altercation with a female employee over his refusal to wear a mask.
“Leave me alone! Get away from me!” the man screams at the employee.
“You need to leave!” the woman yells back.

When confronted by the store employee, as well as a security guard, the man begrudgingly puts on his mask–though he did not adjust it to cover his nose or mouth. Seconds later, he removes it entirely.
“Let go of my f*cking cart, let go of my f*cking cart,” the man rants when the employee confronts him again. He then explodes into screaming rage, edging closer and closer to the employee’s face.

Security then steps in again, ordering the customer from the store. At first, the customer appears to appeal to the security guard that the female employee is harassing him. It doesn’t work.
“Outside now. Go!” the guard orders.
Two other security guards step in and escort the Ken from the premises as other customers watch agog. Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth” plays over the store’s speakers, offering an ironic juxtaposition.
Enough with these. There are plenty of idiots to go around. We know.
Definitely. Although why do we have to use a traditional Anglo name like Karen to call idiotic people? Should we call idiotic black women “Keisha-girl” or Lakita??
Sure, @Armandov, because Black women are refusing to wear masks and threatening to call the cops on people to have them harassed and killed by cops. NOT.
In the real world, these anti-mask and cop-calling Karens and Kens are a problem, especially with this disease that shows no sign of “disappearing,” as the Don the Imbecile Con put it.
BTW, Karen is not a “traditionally Anglo” name, it’s Danish, and there are Black women and women of all races named Karen. It wasn’t common in English-speaking countries until the 1940s.
@Kangol2, now that is how you respond to a racist troll who knows good and well what the term Karen represents, and that these people are not victims, they are the ones causing the problem and rightly being called out on it!
Your response was cool, calm collected, facts. *chef’s kiss* perfect response! 🙂
fierce clerk has awesome hair
Little baby man sure shut up fast when the others showed up.
They need to put a $500 minimum fine for not wearing mask, and arrest these people for verbal assault. These people are assholes and the reason this country is in such a horrible state with COVID-19. Not wearing a mask is an assault using an airborne disease. F_ck these idiots.
Who’s Caren? Is she a friend of chad?
Little man went there looking for trouble.

I like how his voice squeaks when he gets het up! And does so repeatedly.
That’s how you know he’s a big boy!
Ball less LOSER !!! Another Agolf Twitterler brown noser. Hopefully the Universe will whoop some KARMA on his ass and he gets Corona!!! That’s the ONLY way the a-hole d-bags will learn a hard lesson.
Stores need to put up signs…’NO SHOES, NO SHIRTS NO MASKS…NO SERVICE’ People always followed the no shirt/shoes rule without throwing fits…don’t see why mask can’t be added.
@dhmonarch89 EXACTLY. …….EXACTLY.
It’s times like these I wish I knew some martial arts. I have friends who would put this guy on the floor so fast he wouldn’t know he was face down. That’s the only thing they respect — they are bullies and they need to be dealt with as bullies.
@rand503 …….nobody probably wants to hear that, but I couldn’t agree more. because….basically you can’t argue with a fool.
That “Heaven is a Place on Earth” is playing is just the cherry on top.
One of the all time best movies.
All these small dick’d men… what a p*ssy (for lack of a better term. JUST WEAR A MASK! Poor baby…
I think that guy needs to get laid.
We need to just tell folks that don’t wear a mask you’re not going to be able to buy food at all.Stop have a confrontation with people and just tell them you won’t be able to check out so you are wasting your time.All this exposure that this employee had by this pathetic person yelling at her its not worth it.
A lot of stores have those signs, but these entitled jerks don’t feel they need to comply. They’ll walk right in without one like they’re royalty or something. I feel sorry for the store personnel who have to go through this… one day somebody’s going to get violent.
Beverly Hills enforces face covering rules. $100.00 usd for the first offence $200 for second offense and so on…..
