‘Kidz Bop Karen’ Goes Off On Her Driver And Instantly Becomes A Meme

Every day, the internet has an enemy, and today it is Kidz Bop Karen. After you watched her talk for about five seconds, she will be your enemy, too. I will attempt to describe what happens in the video that is making this woman a viral meme, but you really can’t understand why she’s gotten so popular without hearing her sarcastic, threatening voice while looking into her dead eyes.

The video seems to have been filmed by someone in the back of a rideshare, just after some sort of altercation where the driver almost hit this woman’s car. It’s understandable that she might be upset about that, and the video captures the driver apologizing.

“It is your fault,” the woman agrees. But then she continues: “And you know what, that didn’t upset me. But the b*tch a** hoe that told me to calm down. What I’d like you to do is apologize instead of being a b*tch.”

She also has this nasty little hand wave she does and sticks her head in and out of the window like a psycho turtle.

“Sorry but you’re calling me a b*tch, let’s set an example,” says the woman filming. “Oh sorry, I’m sorry,” responds the angry mom. “My kids can’t hear me calling you a b*tch.”

The videographer points out that her window is open, and mom responds, “They can’t hear me because they’re listening to Kidz Bop.”

And a star is born.

Kidz Bop Karen has become an instant meme, because she is so awful in this video and because she finishes the whole display off with an absurd catchphrase for 2019: “They can’t hear me because they’re listening to Kidz Bop.”

It’s perfect. And she’s both hated and loved everywhere:

Weirdly, a lot of these memes seem semi-supportive of Kidz Bop Karen. She’s so awful, but there has been a time in all our lives when we want to call someone a b*tch a** hoe in the same breath as we demand an apology from them. I get it. But I would never let my kids listen to Kidz Bop.
