Characters who would be a "Karen"

Recommended Posts


I wish a Nikki and Dru scene from 2004 was still up. 
 

I think they were both working at Newman for some reason at the time. Anyway, Nikki was trying to undermine Dru’s place there - it probably wasn’t intentional, but there were very racist undertones in that scene.

Oh yes. The scene where Nikki said “You’re a very DISRESPECTFUL young woman!” I know Nikki and Dru are of different generations, but MTS and VR are only three years apart in age, and the comment felt patronizing in an uncomfortable way.

I don't remember this particular scene but I wonder if that's the source of VR's beef w/ MTS.

VR claimed that MTS ran around the set in an Afro wig to mock her, but I’m not sure when that happened. Edit: I wonder if MTS will address that in her forthcoming memoir.

I guess I'll be the one. And @ReddFoxx you need to look up the definition btw.

 

So, the definitive Karen IS Karen on KL

 

@All My Shadows basically had the best definition. If a character would have [!@#$%^&*] [!@#$%^&*] because a coupon expired or store credit expired, even if it was just 5 bucks, that is a Karen.

 

I'd also say that Celia on "Weeds" is one but I have no idea if you guys consider that a soap.

 

I think Kendall on AMC would constitute. And LW's Carly (After all, the first actress and TB were beyond perfect as everyone insists).

Let's see. Sue Ellen Ewing? Cliff Barnes?

I'm accepting both definitions of the term, the annoying but relatively benign "I'd like to speak to YOUR MANAGER" types and the latent to blatant racists.
