The costume comes with a wig that’s an inverted bob and sunglasses. Late last year the left tried to use the term to poke fun at conservative women however, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer quickly became the face of “Karen” in the USA.
Woke activists claim the costume is profiteering.
“A whole costume for a label that’s supposed to identify women who weaponize their whiteness to brutalize black people,” one user wrote.
The term “Karen” replaced AWFL which stood for affluent, white, female, liberal and it is bugging the crap out of activists that someone created a costume poking fun at it.
Many activists claim that a “Karen” is conservative however if that was true they wouldn’t be celebrating that a costume is mocking them.
Whitmer became a punchline and was often called “Mean Karen” Whitmer or Gretchen “Karen” Whitmer.
The backlash was over her strict lockdown and her attempts to arrest an 77 year old barber were what made the nickname stick.
After a long legal battle Karl Manke, 77, won a legal battle against Governor Gretchen Whitmer over her coroanvirus lockdown order. Manke defied the shutdown order because he was in danger of going bankrupt and opened his shop in May of 2020. Whitmer had his license rescinded and fined him thousands of dollars.
Manke argued that he has the “right to work” and the Supreme Court In Michigan agreed.
“It is incumbent on the courts to ensure decisions are made according to the rule of law, not hysteria,” Justice David F. Viviano told MLive.com.
The state appealed the ruling however it will be moot since the lockdown order is no longer in effect.
