What Is A Karen Meme?
The origins of any meme are difficult to trace, and this one as well is no exception. Karens have a long list of 'typical' behaviors and beliefs. Essentially, they consider themselves to have the right to moral police, everyone.
A Karen is roughly described as a white woman, between 30-40 years old. She is blonde, has many young children, and might be an anti-vaxxer.
The Karen manager meme comes from her controlling and superior 'I want to speak to your manager' attitude and a matching haircut. By calling on managers, she is causes trouble for others. Her complaint is fabricated at worst or disproportionate at best.
According to Robin Abcarian from the Los Angeles Times, since a Karen is white, she doesn't face many meaningful repercussions with embarrassing videos posted on social media being the worst of them.
Karens occupy the fraught cultural space of white women feminism, where they do not acknowledge or see the problems faced by women of other ethnicities.
