The Most Karen Moment Ever Caught On Tape At A Burger King Drive-Thru

According to, a Karen is "an obnoxious, angry, entitled, and often racist middle-aged white woman who uses her privilege to get her way or police other people's behaviors". BBC News reported that the term (and the meme that launched it), along with its lesser-used male counterpart, Ken, has been around for a while but gained traction "when wealthy couple Patricia and Mark McCloskey were pictured pointing guns at protesters passing by their home in St Louis, Missouri."

Burger King has had its fair share of "Karens" already, like the woman who was arrested for throwing coffee and burning a drive-thru employee in one of its franchises (via YouTube), or the man who attacked a worker and grabbed her because she did not give him a straw, per CNN. And the wild Burger King stories don't stop at customers. The New York Post once reported on an employee who tried to cast "spells" on customers. 

So, what "Karen" actions prompted the idea that it's "the most Karen moment ever caught on tape at a Burger King drive-thru"? Keep reading to find out.

Leave it to Reddit to provide the answers

Reddit user LeeroyM posted that a "Karen" tried to make an illegal turn to cut in front of the line at a Burger King drive-thru window. When another driver wouldn't let her cut them off in the line, she called 911. But the story doesn't end there. According to the post, the "Karen then proceeds to stand in front of their car with her husband and not let them through, holding up the whole line until the cops arrive." If she couldn't get her kid's meal and crown, no one else was getting theirs, either!

The Daily Dot covered the incident in July, noting that the "Karen" in question and her husband reportedly "got upset and began honking their horn" before getting out and standing in front of the car of the driver in front of them.
