  • Hold on...I have seen countless videos of black women destroying fast-food restaurants and convenience stores. Not all Karens are white...I have seen Asian Karens. Most of the racist Karens are white, for sure.

  • She's not "ignorant" or "stupid," in fact, she's not any different from us mask-wearing people. All humans have the same biases, when you already believe in something, your threshold for evidence against it is much lower than the threshold for evidence supporting it. She already believed in "the gov shouldn't tell me what to do" so all that research presented by Fox and all those conspiracy websites was naturally appealing. It's just unfortunate that these natural human biases are endangering other people's lives during this pandemic.

  • My dayghters name is Karen and she does not like the use of the name eather. people judge her on the internet and makes fun of her and not in a good or fun way.

  • Well Joy.. Respectively, your Mom was wrong. Turning and going the other way to avoid a problem isn't the correct answer. The "Turning a Blind Eye" has gotten us into the mess we're in. 1 John 3 : 17-18 are pretty good instructions on how to Be. It's encouraging to know people still look out for each other. Now we MUST bring about change because of what we have witnessed. Honestly I believe America has a very SERIOUS Mental Health Problem that has been left to fester for much longer than it should have. I think it may get alot worse, I'm afraid to say. I hope I'm wrong.

  • " These people " are YOU following people that aren't wearing masks so you can report them. Sounds like a Karen move to me. They are all Karens on the view.

  • Nice... Karens bitching about the use of the phrase "Karen" in general conversation. This segment is, in and of itself, extremely ironic. The lack of self-awareness is astounding.

  • I think in this conversation ,the point was lost , the problem is, is that ,theses white women and men has taken a stand against black people, where black people are doing every day things , and white people choose to try admonish them just for walking the streets. I think the media, as always " don't get it . Theses people aren't a joke ' when they call the police on innocent black people, just because they feel privileged. I think , media is sad , that they're not reporting the truth . Theses racist ' need to be held accountable ' for their egnorent actions, toward innocent black people.

    Carol GrierCarol GrierMonth ago
    • Carol Grier No... the Karen phenomenon started in the US, and has spread to Australia. Same with the idiocy of ‘sovereign citizens’ and ‘refusing to consent’ to fines and penalties from the government. It started in the US about 5-10 years ago. It’s appearance in Australia is a more recent thing.

  • There was a MASSIVE explosion in Beirut the the other day. Why is The View not covering it? There was a bride in white, after all. :-) And EVERYONE knows The View does only "girly things". (Yes, I am being sarcastic, but this killed hundreds of people and injured thousands, and hundred of thousands are homeless.)

  • The Karen phenomenon is an offshoot of or perhaps even a precursor of the Drumpf Malaise that is afflicting the Global Society. We are witnessing the Death Throes of Homo stultus, the neurological jerking of a dying carcass that is rapidly approaching extinction. It is like the headless chicken that does not know it is dead, still running around as if it has purpose to its existence when really it just hasn't fallen down. The malignant tumour that is mankind is literally consuming itself and flailing around in a desperate attempt to ignore reality. It is only our arrogance and sense of self-entitlement that keeps us believing that we are somehow important and worthy of life. : I find it deeply comical watching the utterly futile Rictus Dance of the Dead!

  • Mental health is getting mixed in with day to day life and it’s not easy to handle when you have no idea what’s happening. Meaning fighting with someone who has bipolar and their having a swing. Not on meds possibly undiagnosed ? Can you imagine how bad you’d feel for beating up someone who is actually Vulnerable

  • Karen’s are hilarious to mess around with. Once my bro an I were on vacation, and we went bike riding. It was a good day, we got some ice cream and looked at boats. Anyway, we were riding around the town, and we happen to pass by this one Karen. We weren’t even close to her at all, but she gives us a death glare, and says “ugh, seriously?” Like heaven forbid she has to see a couple of young adults having fun. It wasn’t anything too bad, but I told my bro about it cause I thought it was funny. (he hadn’t noticed) So, what do we do? We circled back around and almost ran over her a couple of times. She looked proper spooked. We left before she could call the cops on us 😂

  • Nobody that I know named Karen fits the description that is supposedly conveyed by the term ‘karen’. Should they all change their name? I have a better idea: stop making yourself look ignorant by using this word.

    sctlsctlMonth ago
  • However terrible this phenomenon is, it's not OK to link this to a random first name (of over 1 million American women). There has been some serious harrassment and bullying going on towards random women names Karen, solely because of their first name - not because of their behaviour. Seriously, just as for Becky, Felicia and Chad: stop the demonization of first names.
