On Wednesday (Oct 27), we reported of a Caucasian woman who caused a ruckus after she was denied entry into a Dior boutique in KLCC for not wearing a mask and made the term ‘Karen’ trending on Twitter.
Just yesterday (Oct 29), this same ‘Karen’ was reportedly spotted maskless again at Bangsar Shopping Centre (BSC).
Ta-da, here she is!
Twitter user @nabilaazzez uploaded a video of the woman arguing with a security guard and claimed that it was the KLCC ‘Karen’.
In the now-deleted video, the woman could be seen getting into a heated conversation with the guard and recording his face.
In an interview with Malay Mail, @nabilaazzez said that the woman wasn’t allowed to enter the mall as she wasn’t wearing a mask.
The incident is believed to have taken place around 10 am.
She then left the entrance after she was done recording [the guard].”
@nabilaazzez added that she managed to film the woman trying to enter BSC as she was sitting at a cafe opposite the mall’s entrance.
‘Why is she still not charged?’
The tweet has since caused a flurry of concern and outrage among social media users, with some questioning why the woman wasn’t charged yet.
Another netizen alleged that the KLCC ‘Karen’ was seen trying to enter a fine-dining restaurant maskless too.
On the flip side, Malaysian actor and stand-up comedian Harith Iskander urged netizens to stop ‘demonising’ the woman, saying that she could be suffering from mental illnesses.
However, some disagreed, with one noting that mental illness shouldn’t be an excuse to violate the SOPs.
