WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- A supermarket shopper in Texas was dubbed the new ‘Karen’ after a video of her throwing a fit went viral.
- The meltdown happened inside a Fiesta Market in Dallas after she was asked by an employee to put her mask back on to check out.
- She started tossing items from her cart onto the floor and stormed off, yelling, “Now clean that s–t up.”
A supermarket shopper in Dallas has gone viral after she tossed items from her grocery cart in a complete meltdown. Her rage was triggered when she was asked to put a mask back on.
“I don’t give a f–k, I’m from Dallas!” the female shopper ranted while tossing items from her cart at least 14 times in the 27-second clip seen almost 17 million times by Monday.
She hated the “dumbass motherf—ing rules and [the] dumbass motherf—ing s–t.” Her anger is all because of “a dumbass motherf—ing mask!” she was holding in her left hand.
“Put all that s–t the f–k back,” she yelled, with most of the items appearing to be fresh meats as she stood in the express lane despite having a cart full of grocery items.
“I don’t give a f–k. I got a f—ing mask,” she said, but she refused to put the one she’s holding in her hand back on.
She finally stormed off — yelling, “Now clean that s–t up.”
Omar Guillen, the person who recorded the video, said it happened in a Fiesta Mart in Dallas. “She was wearing [a mask] while she was shopping but by the time she got to the checkout line she took it off and refused to put it back on,” he explained.
“She was told cops would be called but did her tantrum and left before they showed up. As for what happened after, I have no idea,” Guillen tweeted.
The video, which was posted Sunday quickly went viral. It was also shared by celebrity Chrissy Teigen, who wrote, “I’m so tired of people, man.”
A lot of Twitter users were outraged and quickly called her the latest “Karen” — a term for entitled women throwing tantrums.
Some just joked that even if she escapes charges — or having to pay for the ruined items — she might still live to regret her fit.
“Wait until she gets home and remembers that she needed groceries,” one person tweeted.
Another, Sage Rosenfels, agreed, saying, “To think that it takes two seconds to put on a mask, and now she has to drive to another grocery store and buy the same s–t which will take another hour or two.”
Fiesta Mart has not responded to requests for comment, as of this writing.
