'Karen' Halloween Masks Spark Outrage...and High Demand

Via CBR:

Artist Jason Adcock has crafted a painted latex mask bearing the caricature of a white, angry middle-aged woman, replete with the signature blonde Karen hairstyle. The face is a grotesque exaggeration of a stereotypical "Karen," a deprecatory name commonly given to an unreasonably demanding woman considered to be privileged or entitled.

(snip)

The artist also says he's received no shortage of irate comments, from complainants ironically asking to speak to his manager.

Adcock has also made an even more disturbing, pustule-infested "KAREN-19" variant of the mask. "She thought she was slick calling you all sheep and look what happened," Adcock joked on another Instagram post.




I dunno, looks like Kellyanne Kryptkeeper Konway to me.

1. Imagine: Karen-ing about the Karen mask.

When someone demands to speak to the manager about a mask demanding to speak to the manager, it's about as meta as anything can get...

2. Too old for a Karen? Isn't that Susan or the other name I can't think of?

8. A friend of mine says the IT department in his company

Often tell people to perform the Karen on their keyboard. First time he was told that he expressed confusion, and he was told to press Ctrl-Alt-Del.

That calls the Desktop Manager.

Bum-dah-dum... KSSSH!
