Footage has emerged of a white woman calling going on a racist rant in the middle of the gas station, before getting slapped.

The shocking video has spread like wildfire on Twitter...

And people are completely horrified by the woman's disgraceful behavior.

And, as the footage gained viral fame...

People have taken to referring to the white woman as a "Karen."

Now, what exactly is a Karen?

Well, the ever-so-accurate 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."

But, for a little more generic description...

Dictionary.com defines a "Karen" as a "mocking slang term for an entitled, obnoxious, middle-aged white woman."

Many people have now been identified as a "Karen"...

And it has become a painfully hilarious joke over the last few years.

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

And thanks to the virality of the meme, many of us can now spot a Karen a mile off.

But, in this instance, there is nothing to laugh about.

She didn't walk away clean as many of these people often do - she got a slap in the face - and the internet is thrilled about it.

The incident occurred in Arizona on Saturday.

And it kicked off when a middle-aged white woman stormed inside a gas station demanding to be helped after her pump outside was apparently not working.

Soon enough, an argument ensued between her and a younger woman who was getting served at the time.

But things quickly escalated.

The man recording the clip claims that he heard the woman tell the younger lady to "go back to her country."

Before telling the clerk behind the register not to serve her.

Things become more and more heated before the 2 women end up in a face to face confrontation.

As the women shout at each other, the "Karen" can be seen pushing the woman.

This, of course, led to the woman defending herself...

via: Twitter

And she can be seen slapping the "Karen" across her face.

As the clip surfaced on social media, people were outraged over the "Karen's" blatant racist behavior.

And of course, felt that the slap in the face was something of a refreshing change compared to those who will often walk away scot-free.

Some think that one slap wasn't enough...

"She begged for it & she got it. She got off easy with that 1 slap though."

Reactions have been strong, to say the least.

The sheer nerve of these people to be so blatantly racist is completely beyond us.
