A TikTok video featuring a homophobic “Karen” verbally abusing a group of teenagers inside a Florida Dollar Tree is going viral after the teens recorded her tirade and “exposed” her online.
The video starts with the unidentified, maskless woman getting inches from a teen’s face and screaming homophobic slurs at him.
“Are you a queer?” she yells in the boy’s face. “What are you? You like it up the a**hole? Cause you look like you like it up your a**hole.”
The teens respond by laughing and trying to distance themselves from the woman, which only angers her more.
The young woman recording the argument, Gabby, asks if she is OK. The woman then walks up to Gabby and starts yelling at her.
Gabby later asks the woman if she is going to go drive her car while so upset and suggests they get the police involved.
“You’re gonna go hurt somebody if you drive your car,” Gabby says.
The woman then starts attacking Gabby and says she looks like she “grew up in a trailer park.”
“Are you even dressed?” she asks Gabby.
Gabby, or @raysofsunhine on TikTok, explains in a series of TikTok videos that she and other patrons happened across the anti-masker who got into it with the teenagers, who she wasn’t with.
“My girlfriend and I were going to Dollar Tree, minding our own business,” she explains. “As we walk in, we see this woman screaming at these kids, calling them queers and other inappropriate comments.”
“They said they were being followed and harassed by this lady, we didn’t know much about the backstory until things calmed down.”
She’s saying “homophobic comments because that’s the only thing she can think of to say,” the woman explains.
