A woman dubbed Kidz Bop Karen recently went viral for her outrageous and somewhat unhinged behavior while on the road.
After being cut off by another car in traffic, Karen stopped in the middle of the street, approached the vehicle and began furiously ranting at the rideshare driver.
Fortunately, one of the passengers began filming Kidz Bop Karen for all to see.
Thanks to Karen’s insistence that her children couldn’t hear her curse because they were “listening to Kidz Bop” back in the car, the clip went viral at a truly alarming rate.
Karen became a household item so fast, in fact, that before the day was even over, someone managed to whip up a musical remix of Karen’s diatribe.

That musical remix wasn’t the only recreation of Karen’s rant to get attention, however.

Many online were absolutely horrified at the possibility of meeting someone like Karen in the real world.

Cab driver cut #KidzBopKaren off, and she got out of her car in full on rage leaving her children locked in the car, in the middle of the road, in the middle of a light, in the middle of traffic, in the middle of New York and in the middle of #kidzbop. Just to get nowhere.

Karen has actually gone on record to TMZ claiming she regrets the incident and that she has “no beef” with the woman who filmed her tirade.
In a surprisingly self-aware moment, Karen also admitted her explosive behavior was enabled by her White privilege and that reactions to her public behavior are “fair game.”
the WAY she said it though made it even MORE disturbing.. who talks like that? is she auditioning for a voiceover role in an r-rated all toddler cast version of "clueless"? yikes.
