Bikini-clad dancer films angry 'Karen' demanding she get her 'a** covered' as her sons were staring at her
Aurea Miranda was berated by an unhinged 'Karen' while she was filming TikTok videos at Freedom Lake in LaGrange, New York
LAGRANGE, NEW YORK: An angry 'Karen' confronted a dancer who was enjoying a day at the lake, demanding that she "cover-up" her bikini. Aurea Miranda was berated by an unhinged 'Karen' while she was filming TikTok videos at Freedom Lake in LaGrange, New York.
Miranda was fixing her tripod and ring light when the woman, who has not been identified, stormed over to her and insisted she get her "a** covered" because her sons couldn't help but stare at her. “You see those group of boys over there? Those are my boys. They’re staring at your a**, which is hanging out in the middle of a public place,” the woman is heard telling Miranda in a viral video. “Do you need a pair of shorts? Because I have an extra pair.”
Miranda, who appeared bewildered in a TikTok clip of the interaction, asked the woman, "What do you mean?” She noted in the video how the Karen wasn't wearing a face mask when she came over. “I mean get you’re a** covered. That’s what I mean. Thank you,” she replied.
Miranda, who was visibly wearing a bathing suit, asked the 'Karen' if there was any rule requiring that she cover-up. “Yeah, there is, it’s called nudity. You can’t be nude on a beach like this. It’s a public place,” the woman said in response. Miranda, however, later confirmed to authorities that her swimsuit was allowed at the park. The clip has since gone viral and garnered millions of views on TikTok.
Having said that, Miranda's encounter with a 'Karen' is one of several confrontations that have recently gone viral and dominated headlines. A radio host in New Hampshire was recently fired after he asked a group of Hispanic workers is anyone was "illegal" and demanded that they "speak English." Meanwhile, an unhinged shopper at a Sketchers outlet in Oklahoma went viral after being caught on camera throwing shoe boxes at store employees after they requested her to put on a face mask while shopping.
'Karen' has become a popular moniker to describe middle-aged women who talk down to people with differing opinions or are overly sensitive. One of the most egregious incidents where a 'Karen' was ridiculed for her entitled attitude was the notorious Central Park incident involving Amy Cooper. According to The Sun, Cooper summoned the authorities and complained to them that a man threatened her life when in fact he simply requested her to leash her dog.
Earlier this month, another 'Karen' was recorded shouting racist remarks at schoolgirls after she saw them picking berries and eating them while on a walk. The woman was seen in the viral video approaching the girls and telling them to "go back where you came from” during a heated back and forth. The altercation took place on the High Knoll Trail at Minnekhada Regional Park in Canada over the weekend. The video saw the 'Karen', who has not been named, lecturing the students about picking berries at a public park. “I pay for this park and I don’t like to see people wrecking it,” the woman fumed, but the girls argued there were "berries everywhere.”
