They have actually remained in front of us, in plain view, for several years.
The Top 5 Star Karens
1) Lena Dunham
Lena Dunham is the queen of star Karens. To use the wokest of terms, the Ladies developer has actually utilized her benefit in bothersome ways, against people of color.
In 2016, she railed against NFL star Odell Beckham Jr after performing an fictional conversation in her head.
Lena Dunham believed Beckham took a look at her like she was a “dog,” and a “marshmallow.” She said he “seemed baffled,” and implied he just appreciated “f * cking.”
What was he doing? Looking at his phone.
How entitled do you need to be to make that about yourself?
The woke imposter has actually also caught criticism for hiring an all-white cast and making some questionable sexual assault allegations in her memoir.
2) Ellen DeGeneres
The ” Queen of Mean” has actually been exposed.
Ellen DeGeneres plays a jolly host on TELEVISION, however in reality, she’s a strolling cold shoulder.
DeGeneres has actually been implicated of horrible habits towards her staff and visitors. Her security personnel said that she was the only celeb who would not say ‘hi’ to him.
Ellen DeGeneres posted and deleted, tone-deaf tweets during the George Floyd protests. After getting called out, she pulled one of the most Karen move possible by making a video of herself sobbing.
Please Ellen, save your tears. You’re going to need them when you get canceled.
3) Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner presents us with an alternate version of Karen. Her opportunity is high, her privilege is through the roofing, but her awareness is hardly human.
This “influencer” has actually mainly published photos of herself in bikinis throughout the Black Lives Matter protests.
She preached safety throughout the pandemic however posted more bikini photos of herself on holiday with a group of buddies. They didn’t use masks and they didn’t keep social range.
She astonishingly reached ‘billionaire’ status earlier this year. It’s less unexpected when you discover she inflated the numbers.
Kylie Jenner hasn’t shown Karen-level anger, however her privilege and obnoxiousness grant her inclusion to this special group.
4) Kelly Ripa
Here’s another talk program host who’s been stating too much.
Do you keep in mind when Kelly Ripa (who’s worth over $120 million) stated her child was residing in “severe poverty”?

Specific things that were going on behind the scenes just captured up.
Just like Ellen DeGeneres, don’t be shocked if more things begin capturing up with Kelly Ripa.
5) Robin DiAngelo
In some cases Karens are masked in persuading camouflage. We saw that with Lena Dunham, whose ‘woke’ persona was eventually unmasked. And now we’re seeing it with Robin DiAngelo, author of White Fragility.
As reporter Matt Taibbi so eloquently dismantled, DiAngelo’s primary property is that every white person is a white supremacist.
No, Robin. You might be a white supremacist, but do not put that onto the rest people.
DiAngelo unloaded her white guilt onto an entire population and got abundant in the procedure. Seems like a Karen transfer to me!
