An ‘Officer Karen’ Broke Into Tears Because She Didn’t Recieve Her McMuffin Fast Enough

A viral video showing a cop breaking down in tears after waiting a little longer than expected for her McDonald’s order has fueled questions about whether we can trust the police.

In a recent clip of an office has gone viral after she expressed nervousness over waiting too long for her order.

The officer named Stacey, who identified herself as a 15-year veteran of the police force, broke out in tears after she was made to wait to pick up her mobile order for a McMuffin, hashbrowns, and coffee at a McDonald’s in Richmond Hill, Georgia. In a video she took of her own choosing, Stacey can be seen crying as she explains her story by starting off by sharing that she put in an order through the mobile app and that she was upset about having to wait.

“And I’m waiting. And I’m waiting. And I’m waiting,” Stacey explained before underlining that she had been feeling hungry for some time. She also shared that after she arrived she was asked to pull over to the side so that an employee could deliver her food. Eventually, an employee came out to serve her but tragically only delivered her coffee order.

“That’s all she hands me is the coffee,” Stacey continued her story, breaking down into tears. “I said, ‘Don’t bother with the food because right now I’m too nervous to take it’ It doesn’t matter how many hours I’ve been up. It doesn’t matter what I’ve done for anyone. Right now, I’m too nervous to take a meal from McDonald’s because I can’t see it being made.” She then went onto ask people to “Please, just give us a break. I don’t know how much more I can take.” She also said that her anxiety is at her mos high and asked people to say “thank you” when they see police officers.

A Twitter user, who identifies as a conservative Trump supporter in her profile, posted the clip which has now been viewed over 11 million times.

Supporters of the officer are suggesting that the delay in her delivery was done in reaction to increasing disgust of police brutality and calls for justice of police victims  Breonna Taylor and George Floyd who were both killed by law enforcement.

Officer Karen’s tearful rant comes after police unions in New York City accused workers at a Shake Shack of poisoning milkshakes ordered by three officers.

Police ultimately determined that the Manhattan fast-food joint had not intentionally tainted the drinks.

“After a thorough investigation by the NYPD’s Manhattan South investigators, it has been determined that there was no criminality by shake shack’s employees,” Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison wrote in a tweet on Tuesday.

Many have been quick to point out that Officer Stacey’s reaction to her food delay is OTT especially considering that she has no idea what is going on behind the counters of McDonald’s.

“She thinks fast-food workers have time to delay her order intentionally as if they aren’t constantly being micromanaged, or that they can even keep track of who had a single egg McMuffin,” wrote one.

“There’s nothing rational about a cop having delusions that her McMuffin is being poisoned because a McDonald’s crew is running behind. Much like the irrational cops who thought they were poisoned by Shake Shack, she shouldn’t have a gun until she’s independently evaluated,” another user remarked.

And here’s just another reason why we need #policereform.
