Forged from a new bout of road rage, mi gente, is “Kidz Bop Karen” a woman whose foul-mouthed attack on a driver she accused of cutting her off on the road has gone viral. Kidz Bop Karen, so named after she claimed that her children could not hear her words of vitriol during her heated confrontation because they were listening to Kidz Bop, has been added to the Camera Meltdown Canon of which “Permit Patty” and “Barbecue Betty” are members.
Kidz Bop Karen went viral after a woman named Chelsea Klein captured her rant and shared it on Friday.
According to NBC News, Klein had in a Lyft and looking at her phone while driving down New York City’s West Side Highway when the incident occurred. She was unaware as to whether or not her drive had cut off the unidentified woman known to the internet as Kidz Bop Karen. However, she did notice the woman giving her driver and herself the bird. This was when Klein decided to give the woman a thumbs up. When the two cars finally came to a stop at a light, Kidz Bop Karen stormed over to Klein’s Lyft vehicle and hit the passenger side woman. Klein says, the altercation made her feel uncomfortable and unsure for her safety, so she began to record.
“I honestly started filming because I was scared she was going to jump in the car,” Klein told NBC News. “The look in her eyes was scary and road rage is kind of scary. I was scared for sure.”
In Klein’s video of the heated exchange, Kidz Bop Karen can be seen leaning into the Lyft driver’s front passenger window and yelling at Klein.
In the video, the Lyft driver seems to calm the situation by conceding that it was his fault. “I’m sorry. I’m really sorry. It’s my fault.” Still, Kidz Bop Karen continued to rage, sticking her tongue out at Klein and staring back at her wide-eyed.
“She thinks it’s cute that her driver almost hit my kids, and she thinks she needs to take a video of it instead of apologizing,” Kidz Bop Karen sparks sarcastically in the video.
Klein can be heard asking the Kidz Bop Karen if standing in the middle of the road helps the situation.
“You being a b—- is going to help?” Klein snapped back before yelling “I don’t know? Calm down! Calm down!”
As the driver once again makes an attempt to defuse the situation by apologizing, Kidz Bop Karen continues her rampage.
“It is your fault,” she tells the driver before whirling around and facing Klein. “And you know, that didn’t upset me, but the b—- a– h– that told me to calm down? What I’d like you to do is apologize instead of being a b—-.”
Klein attempts to apologize before reminding the woman that her children could hear her calling her a “b—- a– h–.” Klein told NBC that from her seat she make out an adult and older child in the woman’s card. Kleins says the child looked to be crying.
In response, Kidz Bop Karen barks back with the ultimate line that has garnered her fame.
“My kids can’t hear me calling you a b—- … they can’t hear me because they’re listening to ‘Kidz Bop.'”
Before the video ends, and Klein and her driver drove off, Kidz Bop Karen told Klein that her “attitude sucks d—.”
Soon after capturing the moment, Klein says she shared the altercation with the site Barstool Sports, and it didn’t take long for the video to go viral. As of now, the original video has 16 million views on Twitter. While Kidz Bop Karen has remained unidentified, she did speak to TMZ and says that she’s bothered by being labeled a Republican because of the video. According to TMZ, Kidz Bop Karen has said that she feels her “her behavior is fair game for trolls because she acted like this in public.” She apparently has also said that she does not hold any animosity towards Klein who filmed her rant and would like to apologize.
Speaking to NBC, a Lyft spokesperson released a statement in response to the incident saying: “The safety of our community is fundamental to Lyft. We have reached out to the rider and driver involved in this incident and stand ready to support any investigation.”
For those interested, Kidz Bop Karen told TMZ that the Kidz Bops tune that her kids were listening to was “Old Town Road.”
On March 28, college student Collin Hayslett from Ohio tweeted that he was proud of his dad for launching into a whole new career world. Cute, right? Well, his intention was lovely. However, the tweet turned into a viral meme and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s take is so much better tha even Hayslett could have hoped for.
Here’s the tweet that went viral and started the “meet my dad” meme.
The tweet, which has been liked more than 300,000 times, took off not only because his dad is hot, but also because others wanted to give props to their own dads.
People started using the #meetmydad hashtag to promote their own cool dads who do it all. One of those people was a very familiar person.
Lin-Manuel Miranda took this opportunity to brag about his own dad.
“I’ve been training all my life for this meme okay goodbye,” Lin tweeted.
For those of you unfamiliar with Lin’s dad, Luis A. Miranda, Jr. isn’t starting a modeling career, but has a stellar career of his own.
He is the Managing Partner of The MirRam Group and has served in three New York City mayoral administrations. He is also the founder and former President of the Hispanic Federation. Not too shabby. No wonder Lin is so proud of his dad.
Lin’s dad wanted to return the compliment by highlighting his own “meet my dad” tweet.
This is so cute! We love that he used the most silly pictures of Lin. They must have a really special father/son relationship.
@starksgoatee tweeted, “This is peak family goals right here.” And we couldn’t agree more.
Lin also tweeted that his dad said, “My dad on the phone just now: ‘did you see my mimeh?'” Mimeh! LOL!!
People kept the meme going by giving love to all kinds of celebrity daddies, like Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Honestly, who hasn’t already fallen in love with Lin-Manuel Miranda? He is the most chill and loveable daddy in entertainment today. That isn’t an exaggeration and the collective love people have for him is proof that we cannot get enough of him.
Of course, someone gave Pitbull a lot of love.
Mr. Worldwide has definitely reached all of his dreams with his wildly successful career. He has taken his music and Cuban culture to every corner of the planet and continues to do things to help his community. He has built schools and donated money for so many causes definitely getting him to that daddy level.
Even William Levy got some love during the “meet my dad” challenge.
Levy is a certifiable zaddy. No doubt about that. He is one man who has kept men and women drooling for decades since he started in telenovelas. Just one look in his eyes and it is so hard not to get lost forever.
