A British TV news program gave airtime to a panel of white women named Karen who say they have been unfairly maligned.
In a segment on Monday, ITV’s Morning Show talked to three women about “memes” that use their name as a slur.
“I just noticed a few memes and TikToks going on and it started of being quite funny,” Karen Masters told the program. “And when the Black Lives Matter protests started, there was a lot of media putting Karen as racist. It sort of took on a life of its own.”
“And I feel that we can’t, as Karens, now talk about how it’s affecting us because we are told that we’re entitled if we do this,” she continued. “So I set up a Change.org [petition] to show that this is not fair for us to have to put up with this.”
Masters added: “We’re labeled as racist, entitled and we’re just not that sort of person. It’s totally unfair and we want the media and the tabloid and the papers to stop using our name to describe racist people. I think you should describe racist people as racist.”
Watch a portion of the interview below.

‘A bridge too far’: Fox News analyst destroys Barr’s ‘absurd’ desire to charge rioters with sedition
Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano, a former judge, on Thursday pushed back against Attorney General William Barr's call to charge violent protesters with sedition.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Barr told federal prosecutors that they could use sedition laws in cases where protests turn violent.
Napolitano explained during an appearance on Fox & Friends that charging protesters with sedition would be a "bridge too far."
"There's nothing wrong with aggressive prosecution," Napolitano said. "But this is not the case for sedition. I mean, the sedition laws -- which by the way, go back to 1798 -- the sedition laws were written for those who plan and plot to overthrow the government, either by violence or by some other means."
‘It’s verboten?’ Newt Gingrich cries out after Fox News cuts him off for blaming violence on George Soros
A Fox News panel shut down former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) on Wednesday after he tried to blame George Soros for violent protests in America.
Gingrich brought up the liberal billionaire's name during a discussion about the cost of violence linked to anti-police protests.
"Look, the number one problem in almost all these cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up," Gingrich opined. "Progressive district attorney are anti-police, pro-criminal and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros' money and they are a major cause of the violence we're seeing because they keep putting the violent criminals back on the streets."
