Anti-vax 'Cruise Karen' EXPLODES after being kicked off ship for testing Covid-19 positive
Infuriated after she was removed from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, the anti-vaxxer Trump-supporting 'Cruise Karen' shared her rant on TikTok
The latest 'Karen' joining the all-exclusive club of White women throwing tantrums over minor inconveniences happens to be an anti-vaxxer who can be seen on TikTok videos having a complete meltdown after being removed from a cruise ship due to a positive Covid-19 test. The unidentified woman, who goes by the username @amethyst216 on TikTok had initially posted a video of herself that went viral with over 2.8M views on the app. Also trending on Reddit, the video's creator has now become infamous as the 'anti-vaxxer cruise Karen' after her complaints escalated from vaccinated people being given bands to how the staff was excessively sanitizing everything, and eventually to the blatant meltdown.
News of this Karen's tantrum comes just a day after New Jersey 'Victoria's Secret Karen' Abigail Elphick went viral for trying to attack a Black woman at the local Short Hills Mall. Much like the cruise Karen, Elphick threw a tantrum and chased the Black woman around the store screaming "Get away from me." Elphick later admitted she threw the tantrum pretending to have a breakdown as she was scared of losing her job and apartment once she realized the attempted assault was being filmed by the other woman, identified as Ijeoma Ukenta.
In the cruise Karen's case, the White woman was infuriated after she was removed from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. Her first video on the app was captioned, “Went on #RoyalCaribbeanFreedomOfTheSea July 2 We gave them our negative Covid test &they accidentally gave us a band 4 vaccinated ppl.” In the clip, she starts off by calling the turn of events "Ridiculous." The cruise-Karen then continues: “They closed off the freakin’ floor at our rooms. Look at our luggage; it’s wrapped in freaking plastic. Look, they sanitized everything, as if we’re really contagious, as if I really had COVID; I had COVID three months ago.”
The cruise ship's response to the Karen aligns with the Center for Disease Control and Infection's claims that state Covid-19 reinfection, even though rare, can still occur. But our cruise Karen is left in utter shock when she sees the cruise ship's medical team has an ambulance waiting for them. To eliminate any risk of catching the virus, the attendant staff can be seen wearing full hazmat gear. To this, the cruise Karen responds by asking that she not be pushed off the cruise's ramp. Doing whatever it takes to stay onboard, the woman yells: “I’m gonna be in charge of my own f***ing life.”
Further accusing the cruise staff of fabricating documents, the Karen yells: “They’re f***ing lying!” she yells, immediately claiming she is going to have a heart attack as she lists symptoms of her situation - most of which are common Covid symptoms, ironically. “Won’t this be a freakin’ story for the printed press," she tells the camera, before telling the staff she came onboard with a negative PCR test and high antibody count. Accusing the cruise ship of falsifying her test results, the woman claims that after giving them the wrong bands for vaccinated people, the cruise security told them her party was not tested before boarding the ship.
Strongly refuting that, she claims when they were given Covid tests, she simply "knew" the test results would be positive as she was placed “around vaccinated people who were not tested for COVID (who) could be a carrier, asymptomatic, and not even know about it.” The Karen further persists, “I know I don’t have COVID." Another video shows her being provided with her flight details, as she writes as an overlay text on the clip that Royal Caribbean was sending her and her friend back home on an ICU plane.
The Royal Caribbean website states vaccination is “recommended” but not required only at Florida. However, they state, “Since the majority of our guests will be vaccinated onboard, there will be venues and events restricted to vaccinated guests only.” According to WebMD, Royal Caribbean also requires “proof of insurance for coronavirus-related expenses," having already had several Covid-related issues since their service restarted post-pandemic.
While not much is known about cruise Karen, in previous TikTok videos, she can be seen flaunting a MAGA hat and expressing her undying devotion to former president Donald Trump. In one particular video from last year, cruise Karen even claims Trump "loves us and he proves it to us every single day".
