‘Karen’ Blasted for Treatment of Mechanic

A viral TikTok showing a “final boss Karen” verbally rating a car mechanic has garnered over 124,000 likes and over 3,000 comments on the popular social media platform.

In the clip, a woman can be seen yelling at a young man as he attempts to put the lug nuts back on her car. The woman repeatedly tells him to leave her property, oscillating between commanding him to leave the car where it is and putting the lugnuts back on.

She accuses the mechanic of disrespecting her and “putting words in [her] mouth” in the clip, but it’s unclear what transpired between the two prior to her decision to hurl diabetes at the man.
