‘Universal Studios Karen’ threatens to ‘spread her Covid’ on boy who took her seat, Internet calls her ‘gross’

After 'Bagel Karen' shot to infamy overnight for hurling racial abuses at a Black bakery employee, there's a new woman rivaling her already. Dubbed as yet another 'Karen', a tourist was seen threatening to "spread her Covid" on a boy who took her seat at Universal Studios.

The incident comes shortly after a group of young Canadians was labeled the worst tourists of the year for bragging about flouting Covid-19 protocols as they traveled through several different airports. This 'Universal Studios Karen' is getting just as much attention online as 'Bagel Karen', who was asked to wear her mask.

'Karen' yells at boy for filming her as she smoked in front of kids, Internet says 'she needs a** whooping'

The ripped-from TikTok video that has been shared on YouTube and Twitter has gone viral to the point where people online are outraged at how the studio's policy allows this to happen at all. Shared on Twitter by a user called Marjorie Gaylor Queen (@Tim_Tweeted), the video doesn't bear the TikTok username it is believed to have been ripped from. It was also shared on YouTube by Galaxy Views on Sunday, but the date and time of when the incident happened, or when it was filmed, are still unclear.

The video also accompanies a text overlay that reads “Women [sic] admits to having covid and threatened to infect us for not giving up our table, and Universal Did NOTHING, and alloud [sic] her to stay in the park!” The video shows a woman arguing with a boy seated at a bench. The person behind the lens, expected to be the boy's mother, asks, “Are they calling security?” The other woman quickly retorts: "Go ahead call security before I take off my mask and spread it on you. You know my saliva can [come off] your mask.” She presumably meant her saliva can pass through the boy's mask, although it's unclear. 'Universal Studios Karen' continues: "Get out of my table now. I asked you politely. When my food comes I want you to leave.”


The boy can be seen holding his ground, as he responds "No, I told you nicely that I’m sitting here.” The 'Karen' shoots back, "And I told you nicely I’m having food here." The boy then says, "I’m sorry about that. That’s not my problem." The 'Karen' then attempts to threaten to infect the boy and his family again. “It’s not my problem then, unless you want to get Covid,” she says. The verbal duel continues a little longer until the boy starts mocking the woman. "I'm not leaving. You’re out of breath right now,” he says, adding: “You’re doing way too much. You’re just messing with yourself right now.” The woman, seemingly flustered by now, replies: “You’re getting my Covid worked up. You’re gonna get me really ill.”

The video has caught the attention of many on social media, with LoudEmoPsychic commenting on YouTube, writing: "I don’t understand how people don’t stay at home when they have covid it’s so disgusting to willfully try and make people sick with something they could die from and she probably doesn’t even care." Commenting under the tweeted version of the same video, users mostly criticized Universal Studios for the showdown. One user tagged the studio's official account and wrote: "@UniStudios So this is acceptable behavior in your parks? Looks like it’s not safe to attend." Another chimed in: "@UniversalORL, did your security really allowed a woman who claimed to have COVID to stay in the park?"



Others were more elaborate while telling off the studio. "What is going on at your park? She should have been removed from the park immediately - 1 because she is being very confrontational and 2 she openly admits that she has covid. (which I don't believe she really has - she was using it as a weapon). Gross," tweeted a user. Others threatened to boycott the park tweeting, "@UniStudios either guarantee families are safe or your parks are off of our family vacations going forward. Period." Some were also grossed out by her sitting on top of the table, one user wrote: "Why is she putting her nasty sweaty ass on the table anyway.. that’s where the food goes. And You know she ain’t charmin clean." Another kept it simple and short, and called the 'Karen' "embarrassingly gross."
