“Karen” has struck again, this time doing a crazy little dance, cursing at pair of girls of color and then telling them to “go back to where they came from” for… eating berries off a branch in a regional park.
first time encountering a karen in the wild today. this lady decides to yell at my friend @pwncssleeka and i for eating berries off a branch then proceeds to tell us to “go back to where we came from.” the entitlement some white people have is actually disturbing. pic.twitter.com/uerzowQiQC

“You sound like complete twits!” begins the woman in the video as the girls, social media users @PashandiSara and @pwncssleeka, protest and point out that she’s the one who is freaking out over the pair picking some berries. “Eat all the berries you want, just don’t take the whole bush with you!” complains the woman.
When the girls hold up the little branch of berries they had taken and then ask her why she doesn’t mind her own business, Canadian Karen loses it. Obviously infuriated at being talked back to, the woman spits that “that is the f*cking rudest thing you’ve said to me! Why don’t you go back to where YOU CAME FROM if you want to [unintelligible].
The girls then call her a “colonizer,” which leads to the incredible admission that this woman is an American who wasn’t even born in Canada at all!
The frequency with which these kinds of videos emerge makes it obvious that there is a continent-wide pandemic of self-entitled white people growing furiously angry at having to share spaces with other people and resorting to petty racism the moment they perceive an ounce of pushback.
