McDonald's Karen throws tantrum over coffee being late as her 'blood sugar was low'
The video of this incident went viral across several social media platforms. On YouTube, one person commented, “Sad that 5, 6, 7-year-olds handle situations better than she is”
Entitled behavior turning into downright displays of aggression has become a semi-regular feature in news stories now. Almost every week, one hears about and sees this in play, and often at the center of the story is a character dubbed a “Karen”, whose actions never have any justifiable explanations. This story is about a woman who trashed a fast food restaurant because her order was supposedly taking too much time.
In a TikTok video posted on September 26, a woman was seen pushing trays and table markers to the ground in an Arkansas McDonald’s while waiting for her order. She justified her actions by saying she had diabetes and her “blood sugar is low.” The video was uploaded by TikTok user @still.bad.decisions. The TikTok user said that the woman was waiting on a cup of coffee.
The TikTok user who posted the video, the DailyDot reported, was seen helping a McDonald’s employee pick up the materials that the woman knocked over. “I lost my Karen virginity today,” wrote @still.bad.decisions in the overlay text of the video.
The video of this incident went viral across several social media platforms. On YouTube, one person commented, “Sad that 5, 6, 7-year-olds handle situations better than she is.” Another person wrote, “There should be a special island set aside for people like this, that is full of other Karen’s and no managers.” Another comment read, “Any time someone starts this. Everyone stand up start walking towards the person and start the shame, shame, shame. This will cure this.”
On the original TikTok video as well, the comments slammed the woman. Especially the part where she used her supposed diabetes as an excuse for her actions. “As a diabetic, when my blood sugar is low, I sit down and ask for help,” commented one TikTok user. “Not destroy a store.” Another comment said, “My dad is a diabetic & when his sugar gets low he gets sleepy. When mine gets low I sweat & get shaky. Not throw a tantrum.”
“I’m a type one diabetic,” commented one user. “We do not claim her.” Another person said, “I mean, I totally get it. The last time my blood sugar got low I set multiple buildings on fire. It just affects everyone differently!”
Back in July, in another TikTok video, a woman was seen yelling and throwing trash, a garbage can, and an iced tea dispenser at McDonald’s workers via a drive-thru window. The TikTok user who shared the video said that they don’t know what caused the woman’s outburst and that they just “heard yelling and started recording.”
They also claimed that the police were called to the incident, who “got her plate number” and watched the video. A TikTok user who claimed to be one of the workers in the video commented on it as well. “I was hoping one of you would see this. I’m so incredibly sorry about this happening,” they said.
