Karen is used as a name for the irritating, entitled woman, sometimes as an ex-wife who took custody of “the kids.”(Karen Stealing her fucking Kids). Karen is typically White. Debatable but don’t ask to speak to the manager.
Karen always needs to speak to the manager because you won’t accept her expired coupon, her husband is most likely a douche and their marriage is likely failing, Karen is involved in a couple of pyramid schemes, etc.
How to define a Karen?
Karen is a middle-aged white woman who happens to be as entitled as she is ignorant and obnoxious behavior. She can be kind or racist in some cases and more importantly she has short hair.
It was just a simple meme a year back, but now it’s all over the internet. It becomes a kind of slang you say to some misbehaving short hair woman who wants to speak to the manager.
Origins of the Karen meme can be found from a movie Mean girl movie. When the Karen named actress ask “Why you are white” then the other girl says “Omg Karen you can’t just ask people why they’re white”. Needless to say, this might be the origin of this meme, who knows how it becomes this popular.
