Sadly, we live in a country with many “Karens” out there. Too many, if you ask me…but what can you do? Actually, you can film them in action and expose their stupidity to the rest of the world. Yep, that’s a good start. And that’s exactly what D. Giles did on the opening day of this Trader Joe’s in North Hollywood.
On this inaugural day, a Karen threw a tantrum…guess why? Because she was asked by the TJ employees to wear a mask. She claimed she had respiratory issues (which is actually an even better reason to wear a mask in the middle of a pandemic – duh!) and apparently couldn’t breathe. Although, by the way she screamed at full lung capacity, I would have never guessed that.
“I have a breathing problem!” Karen yells. “My doctor would not let me wear a mask! So, anyone harassing me to wear a mask,” she continues to say, as she waves her finger at literally everyone in line to checkout, “you guys are violating federal law! Get that — get that on camera!” Don’t worry, Karen…it’s all over the internet now; you are as trending as Tr*mp playing golf in the middle of a pandemic.
The replies to the video are priceless and spot on:
I know that for the Karens out there, wearing a mask is insufferable and apparently unconstitutional. But all I’m going to say is that if I gave birth wearing an N-95, don’t tell me you can’t shop for groceries with one. #dontberidiculous.
