woman in 99 cent store screaming about not wearing a mask


Maskless ‘Dollar Store Karen’ confronts fellow shoppers at checkout

She didn't see the bodies so it never happened, apparently.

In a viral Reddit video, a woman dubbed “Dollar Store Karen” asked, “Where are the dead bodies?” as 99 Cents Only variety store patrons and employees alike criticized her for not wearing a mask.

The angry woman is at a register, attempting to check out a handful of items. The video starts with her yelling “corporate” and “check me out.” The videographer gets closer and catches the woman asking for the name of the employee. 

He says to “put a mask on, Kim Cooper.” The man may have been attempting to call the woman “Amy Cooper,” the notorious “Central Park Karen” who called the police on a Black birdwatcher. 

“I’m disabled, and I don’t have to,” she yells. “I’ve shown her my identification.”

Another woman gets into a screaming match, rightly informing the aggrieved woman that “they don’t have to give you service.”

The Karen then says that “her rights are being violated.” The videographer replies that she is “spitting corona all over the floor.”

Now annoyed, she explains something about the “pathology [of coronavirus] not making sense,” and then asks, “Where are the dead bodies?”

Exhausted with the conversation that clearing isn’t going in her favor, especially after citing easily debunked conspiracy, she elected to leave the premises.

Early in the pandemic’s rise, in New York City, funeral homes were once packed with those who died of COVID. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, there have been no known reportings of dead bodies being piled up for public viewing.
