UK Restaurant Artfully Puts Lying Karen In Her Place

During more "normal times" we relish seeing restaurant owners call out unreasonable customers for bullshit reviews. Now, while restaurant workers and bartenders are risking their lives to cater to entitled people, we find that we relish the takedowns even more. Today we come to you with a classic Karen tale from Hucknall in the UK. This Karen, whose real name is Jo, took to Facebook to express her dismay at being kicked out of a restaurant after spending  £700 on a birthday celebration at the venue. 

The restaurant quickly responds - correcting her lies (the party spent about a quarter of that) and calling her group out for their drunken and entitled behavior. It's an expert takedown that requires only facts to make the Karen (and her entire family) seem out of line. And we think you'll find it pretty entertaining.

Karen gets called out for lying about experience at bar cowshed hucknall, owners call her out for bullshit, she gets banned | Cowshed at Hucknall COWSHED 1 d Hi Jo, thanks reaching out love feedback, whether be positive or negative especially love feedback like this so others can see type people have deal with sometimes.

Elon Musk Earns 'Space Karen' Title After Complaining About Covid-19 Tests

If you thought the internet was done talking about Karens or Elon Musk, you were dead wrong. And Twitter offered us an unholy amalgam of the two this weekend. The SpaceX founder tweeted on Friday that "something extremely bogus is going on," regarding Covid-19 tests. 

The tweet, unsurprisingly, was not well received. While many people resolved to call Elon Musk a "pos" and decry his penchant for fueling conspiracy theories, doctors and academics instead called him out in the best way they know how: with facts and statistics. While we admire every own, it was Dr. Emma Bell of Toronto, Ontario that delivered the harshest blow. In their takedown tweet, they refer to Elon Musk as "Space Karen." The nickname was received far better than Musk's cringey tweet. We've put together some of the best reactions to Musk's tweet and subsequent Karen-dom, but we're willing to bet you'll find more goodies on Twitter.  


Funny memes and tweets Space Karen and about elon musk's cringey tweet about covid testing | Emma Bell PhD @emmabe1142 Rapid antigen tests trade sensitivity for speed. They return a result in minutes, but can only detect COVID-19 when you're absolutely riddled with it. What's bogus is that Space Karen didn't read up on the test before complaining to his millions of followers. Elon Musk @elonmusk Something extremely bogus is going on. Was tested for covid four times today. Two tests came back

JK Rowling Under Fire For Transphobic Tweets

JK Rowling, the author of the beloved Harry Potter books, is receiving a whole lot of criticism after tweeting several transphobic sentiments over the weekend. The internationally acclaimed writer took to Twitter with claims that a) you have to be a woman to menstruate, and b) trans women aren't actually women - and that their "claim" of the sex undermines the experiences of true women. 

Rowling has a long history of being a TERF (trans-exclusionary radical feminist), and she's not alone. Doctor Who writer Gareth Roberts has been widely criticized for anti-trans tweets, and Graham Lineman (creator of The IT Crowd) has never been shy about his own TERF beliefs. Rowling just seems to get more attention for her backwards beliefs because she of her influence as the author of the Harry Potter series. She's very visible, and many people on Twitter have been quick to decry her exclusionary views. And we can't blame them. For someone who is heralded for bringing diversity to her imaginary wizarding world, she falls very short within her own politics. And the following Twitter users were eager to call her out. 

JK Rowling attracts criticism on Twitter for transphobic tweets, anti-trans tweets, transphobia, TERF | J.K. Rowling O @jk_rowling respect every trans person's right live any way feels authentic and comfortable them. l'd march with if were discriminated against on basis being trans. At same time, my life has been shaped by being female do not believe 's hateful say so |

Tattoo Artist Gets Exposed For Blatantly Stealing Designs From Google

When you get caught in a glaringly obvious web of lies, the best policy is generally to just own up to it. Nobody's falling for your BS anyway so it's probably best to not make yourself look even more stupid.

This "tattoo artist" blatantly stole a bunch of their designs from other artists off of Google and then continued to play dumb after being called out.

And the worst part? The copied art is definitely not as good as the original!

Teen Couple Claim They Bought A House And Twitter Doesn't Buy It For One Second

Twitter user Mike Mulloy had the right idea when he called out Jacob Obers on Twitter for claiming that he and his girlfriend bought a house at age 19. First of all, who the hell even buys property anymore? And secondly, we're willing to bet that neither of these doofus kids have ever even had jobs before. Next!

Entitled Dude Gets Called Out After Falsely Claiming That He Paid His Own Way Through College

Some people are just more delusional than we can ever fathom. Like this guy, for example. It's not a secret in this day and age that college tuition isn't even remotely affordable for most, but this guy went out of his way on Twitter to try to explain how he supposedly managed to pay his own way through his education. 

Twitter users, however, dug up some of his old tweets, and let's just say that he wasn't being especially truthful...

During an interview on Fox News, defense analyst Thomas Ricks accused the network of politicizing the attack in Benghazi, and being a "wing of the Republican Party." Fox immediately shuts the interview down.

Ricks later explained, "One reason I spoke the way I did is that the hero of my new book is George Marshall, the Army chief of staff during World War II. He got his position by speaking truth to power, and I try to follow that example."
