Blair Featherman is a Lakewood, Colorado, feng shui consultant who was named by Daily Mail and on TikTok as the woman dubbed “Poolside Karen” after being shown in a viral TikTok video trashing Mexicans.
At one point in the viral video, the woman identified as Featherman says, “You don’t even know what Hermes is!” A 2019 bankruptcy filing obtained by Heavy shows that Featherman, a mother of two daughters, has been beset with financial difficulties in recent years, including owing thousands of dollars to multiple credit card companies.
Her behavior has been widely derided as racist on social media. She is the latest in a series of women labeled “Karen” on the Internet.
Featherman told Daily Mail, “I have been trying to stay silent and not comment about this, but there are things the video doesn’t show. I’m not a racist. It was deceptively edited and put together to tell a narrative that isn’t true.”
Daily Mail reported of Featherman’s accusations: “She claimed she was physically attacked. One woman clawed at her hair so violently that her artificial nails broke off.”

1. The Video Shows a Woman Identified as Blair Featherman Calling a Mexican Party ‘Trash’ & Stating, ‘You Don’t Even Know What Hermes Is’
@jadeserie According to this karen all mexicans are low class. I hope this video is found by her coworkers, family and friends.

The video was posted to TikTok on July 6, 2023, by @jadeserie. It’s captioned, “racist Karen. Do your thing.” The TikTok user wrote, “According to this karen all mexicans are low class. I hope this video is found by her coworkers, family and friends. Acting like this at family BBQ with children is absolutely disgusting. #VozDosCriadores #casamigos #karensgoingwild #karensoftiktok #karens.”
“You have a f****** Mexican party in a pool, trash,” the bikini-wearing woman identified as Featherman says in the video, adding, “You can’t just record me.”
She also tells people to “go back down to Denver.” Lakewood is less than 10 miles away from Denver, southwest of the city.
“Get the f*** out of here!” a person responds.
“I live here!” she says. “Nowhere where you came from, wherever you came from, you f****** low-class slime!”
She then added, “You’re wearing it at the pool, you idiot. You don’t even know what Hermès is!”
At one point, a man with her appears to be trying to get the woman identified as Featherman under control.
