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...

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 particular incident took place on an airplane...
via: Getty ImagesThe eye-opening clip was filmed by passenger Jordan Slad on an American Airlines flight from Ohio to North Carolina, and uploaded to TikTok.
During the video, a woman can be seen refusing to wear a mask on the plane.
via: TwitterThis goes against flight guidelines that state everyone must wear a mask to fly.
via: TwitterThis woman claimed she didn't have to wear a mask for medical reasons.
According to Jordan, the woman was being "argumentative from the gate."
via: TwitterAnd began demanding to be boarded first, "causing an obvious scene."
At one point while on the plane, another passenger confronted the woman about not wearing a mask.
via: Twitter"A woman in the back got up from her seat and sort of confronted the attendant saying she was going to miss her connection and then directed the conversation back to the woman saying if she misses her flight because of her," Jordan says.
As the incident ensued, the woman was removed from the flight.
via: TwitterThe woman is clearly furious, and grabs her items before storming off the flight.
As she leaves the aircraft, everyone can be heard cheering.
via: TwitterOne passenger even shouts: "Just leave, we have flights to get on!"
The woman doesn't leave it there, however.
via: TwitterBefore making her grand exit, she turns around and shouts "You can clap all you want."
After the clip went viral, people reactions came pouring in.
