Let's start with the basics.
What exactly is a Karen?

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

But now, the first-ever male Karen has emerged...
@TaylorLorenz You could try calling him Kevin, Richard, or Chad. But it looks like he’s being mostly called ... the male Karen.— Dictionary.com (@Dictionary.com)1591741536.0
A man has recently been filmed calling the cops (shock) on a pair of peaceful protestors...
via: TwitterAnd it's all because they were holding signs encouraging people to honk for the BLM movement.
"You think you're actually making a difference?"
via: TwitterThe male Karen, who hasn't been identified, was visibly very angry as he called the cops, and the protestors could be heard trying to reason with him.
But he wasn't having any of it.
via: TwitterStanding confidently and speaking defiantly down the phone, he could be heard saying: "There's 2 people stood out here on the corner... And they're having people honking. It's past eleven o'clock."
It really is the most Karen of all complaints.
via: Twitter"I want them arrested. Right now. They're here filming me... I'm done with this. I'm done with it."
"You can record me all you want, I fought for this country - Put that on your god damned video feed."
via: TwitterHe then stands with his lips pursed and hand on hip - The ultimate Karen stance.
