A new video has captured an angry “Karen” throwing shoe boxes at an employee in a Skechers store in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, because, according to the worker, she was asked to wear a mask. However, the woman forgot something important that made it easy to track her down: Her wallet.
Myah Joycelynn posted the video on Facebook, writing on July 8, 2020, “So this happened at work today…🙄 stupid Karens. All we wanted was for her to wear a mask pls share this lol I hope this lady is embarrassed of herself and her actions.”
Here’s the video:
The video shows a woman throwing several shoeboxes at an employee in the shoe store. “That’s assault, ma’am. We’re going to get your license number. What is your name?” The employee asks, going out into the parking lot, where the woman walked to and got inside her car. The woman who threw the shoes is not identified.
A woman asked Myah, “Have y’all been able to report her?? That’s assault and disorderly conduct for sure,” and Myah wrote back, “Oh yeah we sent it to news stations and have reported and my co worker pressed charges. Also the dumba*s left her wallet at the store so we turned that into the police as well lol.”
A “Karen” is a derogatory term, typically applied to middle-aged white women who get upset over small things. Mask requirements have sparked numerous conflicts throughout the country, some captured on video.
