In the viral clip, the female Pakistani “Karen” – a slang used to describe an entitled, racist, and often a middle-aged white woman, who exhibits behaviours that stem from privileges – is shown getting angry at the staff.
The restaurant staff can be heard, frequently, explaining to the woman that they are obligated to ask for her vaccination certificate as mandated by the government’s guidelines.
In the video, the female started screaming at the Okra staff when they asked her for the vaccination certificate. When asked by Okra staff to show the vaccine card she started screaming and began filming them.Moreover, she said that asking for a vaccine certificate is like an ‘invasion of medical privacy’.
But, some onlookers filmed the incident informing people about what transpired between the female ‘Karen’ and the food joint staff. Netizens are lending support to the staff who was shouted upon and harassed by the so-called human rights activist.
“No-one has violated human rights the way so-called ‘human rights activists’ did,” wrote a user. “This woman needs to be tracked down, named, and shamed. No human rights activist can speak in a tone she chose to speak with an honourable man doing his work with dignity. She is bringing shame to a very prestigious profession (Human Rights,” tweeted another user.
