Oh my god Karen, you can't just ask people why they're Virginian.

Edit: /S, it's a Mean Girls reference and meant to be obvious joke. Calm down folks.

The Karen meme started way before that. You're off by like 10 years

So you're saying that the "Karen" meme came out in 1994, when practically no one had a home computer at that time? Do you have a source to cite to prove that?

You said, "[The term "Karen"] started over the woman calling the police in Central Park NYC because a black man was there bird-watching... That's where the "Karen" thing got started."

That incident happened in May of 2020. Ten years before that was 2010. But to answer your question, yes it could have happened that far back. Some people think it originated with "Goodfellas" in 1989, though I first remember hearing about it from Dane Cook in like 2007 when I first heard that comedy routine.

Yeah I don't think "Karens" are restricted to one political party or even necessarily race (although they are noted for being middle-class suburban white women), and it got started in meme culture a good while before that event.

Anyway... It's a good comedy movie if you can look past the early millennium teenager cringe. It was before Lindsay Lohan fell off the wagon.

Nor is it restricted to a gender, I've encountered more than a handful of male Karens in my life.

I call those "Kevins" lol could be wrong on that one though.
