The stereotypical name associated with rude, obnoxious and insufferable middle aged white women.

Karens take everything wrong with the typical over entitled western woman and crank it up by several thousand percent. They are a mutated subspecies that descends from the Soccer Mom, and have many of their traits. Such as a short temper, a crown bowl haircut, an unnecessarily large SUV to take her kids to soccer practice and be a menace on the road, etc etc. But Karens have developed their own unique characteristics /antics as well. Including but not limited to;

-Reveling in making the life or retail workers a living hell by constantly making a scene over nothing and demanding to "speak to the manager" (a near universal battle cry among Karens).
-Threatening to sue someone for a minor misdemeanor they may or may not have committed and may or may not have even involved Karen at all.
-Treating the drive thru line like the set of a Mad Max film by cutting in line and honking at anyone who tries to get in. Even willing dent other people's cars to save 45 seconds in getting her $1 muffin. (Karens in this situation may or may not ask to speak to the drive thru worker's manager and / or threaten to sue the drivers of the car she just rammed.)
-Being a part of the anti-vax crowd and relying on Essential Oils for the health of their children because of a Facebook post she saw.
-Reading erotica that makes 50 shades of grey look like Hamlet by comparison in public.
And Many Others.
Cahsier: Okay Ma'm, that'll be 27.75. Will you be paying with Cash or Card?
Karen: Uhm, that was incredibly rude! I'd like to speak with your manger.
Cashier:.....For what?...
Karen: HOW FUCKING DARE YOU SPEAK TO ME THAT WAY! *Karen's scream is loud enough to shatter eardrums, including that of the unvaccinated son standing right next to her* I WILL SUE YOU INTO OBLIVION! YOU'LL NEVER FUCKING DISRESPECT ME LIKE THAT AGAIN! *begins throwing nearby objects at the Cashier in a fit of rage. The Cashier takes cover behind the counter as he fears for his safety*
Innocent Bystander: Oh my god, someone call the police!
Karen: YES! THANK YOU! ARREST THIS MISERABLE SACK OF SHIT!
Innocent bystander #2: She's talking about you, you fuckin' pyscho!
Karen: YOU MOTHER FUCKER! YOU'RE ALL HORRIBLE PEOPLE! YOU'RE ALL GOING TO BURN IN HELL FOR THE WAY YOU TREAT ME! *Karen then drags her 3 1/2 year old unvaccinated son out the store before security / police arrive. She's identified on the security footage and is arrested a few days later. Karen cries on the stand when she's in court while claiming she didn't do anything wrong. Karen is sent to jail. The people rejoice.

Middle aged woman, typically blonde, makes solutions to others' problems an inconvenience to her although she isn't even remotely affected.
Karen sues the local city council after they installed a new STOP sign that hides the sun from her window for two minutes a day. The sign was installed after a school boy on his bicycle was hit by a speeding driver and died.

Karen refuses to wear a face mask for her 5 minute trip to the supermarket during a pandemic. She harasses the workers, asks to see the manager and threatens to sue.

Karen complains that her favorite parking spot was replaced by a ramp for wheel chairs. She parks her car in the old spot anyway and shoots a vlog about it.

Drinks crappy wine with her other non-working mom friends at book club and posts stupid memes on Instagram. Has a husband who works an office job and makes all the money for her. Karen's can also be found on forums on the internet talking about how much they hate Fortnite, social media especially tik tok, and their husbands. Karens also own a variety of Walmart running shoes which they wear 24/7.
Burger king worker 1: Oh damn it, here comes that mom in the workout gear and running shoes, I wonder what she has to say, she's already ordered.

Burger King worker 2: Bet her name is Karen

Mom: Can I speak to the manager?

Burger king worker 2: I rest my case
