What exactly is a ‘Karen’?

‘Karen’ has become a widespread meme referencing a specific type of middle-class white woman, who exhibits behaviours that stem from privilege. 

‘Karen’ is associated with the kind of person who demands to ‘speak to the manager’ in order to belittle service industry workers, is anti-vaccination, and carries out racist micro-aggressions, such as asking to touch black people’s hair.

In recent months, the meme has evolved into something new: Coronavirus Karen. This particular form of Karen refuses to wear a face covering in shops, won’t stick to quarantine, and thinks the whole pandemic thing is overblown.
