California 'Karen' Erupts With Rage at Store After Being Told to Wear a Mask | 22 Words

After weeks of "Karen" stories, yet another middle-aged white woman has gone viral for erupting with rage at a store in California after being told to wear a mask.

Keep scrolling for the full story, and to see the footage for yourself...

Let's start with the basics.

What exactly is a Karen? Well, Urban Dictionary describes a Karen as a "mother of three. Blonde. Owns a Volvo. Annoying as hell. Wears acrylics 24/7. Currently at your workplace speaking to your manager."

"Karens" are usually known for demanding the presence of a manager in order to complain...

And they have become a painfully hilarious joke over the last few years.

The name "Karen" has always been associated with a certain type of middle-aged white woman who’s likely to throw a fit if she doesn’t get her own way.

And the memes are comedy gold.

Things have truly gotten out of hand with the Karen meme...

But we aren't complaining!

And thanks to the internet...

We can now spot a Karen asking for the manager a mile off.

There are a whole range of Karens out there...

But in more recent times, we've seen an unusual flux of nastier, more sinister Karens dominating our headlines.

As we become more aware of the ongoing racism occurring in this country, we can't help but notice that these Karen's are often at the center of the scandal.

Just last month, a "Karen" was publically ridiculed after she was filmed calling the cops on a black man.

The incident happened in Central Park...

And the woman, who has now been identified as Amy Cooper, was seen calling the police on a black man who had asked her to put her dog on a leash. Thankfully, Amy's actions came back to bite her, and she was fired from her job in the days after the video went viral.

And, just weeks after that incident...

Another racist Karen reared its ugly head.

A middle-aged white woman in Phoenix was filmed targeting a Hispanic shopper in her local supermarket...

She unleashed a barrage of hateful and racist abuse at the shopper, and even told her to "go back to Mexico."

The clip was truly shocking...

But people reveled in glee when she was spectacularly slapped across the face.

And then, the first-ever male Karen emerged...

And he was just as terrifying as you could imagine.

A man was recently filmed calling the cops (shock) on a pair of peaceful protestors...

And he could be heard telling them that he "fought for this country" and demanding their arrest. How very Karen of him.

And, just when you thought we couldn't write about any more Karens...

You guessed it, another video has emerged.

This time, the incident took place in a store in California.

California has made it mandatory to wear face masks in public, but it seems one Karen wasn't best pleased when she was asked to put one on.

The unnamed woman was filmed in a LA branch of Trader Joe's.

In line with guidelines, the unnamed woman was stood outside in the line and was told to put her mask on, which she did. But as soon as she entered the store, she reportedly removed it.

The woman was then confronted by another shopper.

She then unleashed a rage-filled rant upon the staff and customers in the store.

She screamed that she had a breathing problem and was excused from wearing a mask by her doctor.

She then started calling fellow shoppers all kinds of nasty names, claiming that her rights had been violated.

The shocking incident was caught on camera by actor D. Giles in a series of clips.

"I was in line to check out in the middle of the store and noticed when she came in because she took her mask off and held her phone up to start recording video of everyone in the store," he revealed to “Then I saw her grab the basket and start ‘shopping’ but was really just moving around to get close to people."

After watching, many had the same reaction.

"I'm impressed with the volume she's able to create with those lungs that have a breathing problem. Must have been the adrenalin spike from those Bebe sequins."

Someone else who witnessed the incident chimed in on Twitter.

"So exhaustingly predictable."
