[B&T warns this article does include language some readers may find offensive] Yes, the global pandemic has placed us all under a lot of stress and so maybe we can all empathise with a video that’s just surfaced on social of a grocery shopper absolutely losing her shit after being asked to wear a face mask.
The unnamed woman – who the internet has wonderfully dubbed “Karen” – was doing her weekly grocery shop at Fiesta supermarket in Dallas, Texas.
According to reports, Fiesta has a policy that all customers entering the store must wear a face mask.
The video, caught on the phone by another shopper, sees the bespectacled blonde lose the plot when asked to put on a protective face covering.
Clearly agitated, the woman starts hurling the contents of her trolley onto the floor and yelling obscenities.
“I don’t give a fuck about Dallas and dumbarse motherfucking rules,” the woman rants as she continues lobbing the weekly shop.
“I don’t give a fuck, I got a fucking mask,” she says before storming out of the store adding: “Now clean that shit up.”

Back in March, a Tamworth man had to be tasered by police following a fight over toilet rolls in his local Big W store.
The 50-year-old is alleged to have assaulted a store worker and a female customer before attacking and resisting police who subsequently subdued him with a taser.
Or, who could forget the wonderful video of three woman fighting over toilet rolls in a Sydney Woolworths back in early March that quickly went global and embarrassed the entire nation.
Two women involved in the fracas – mother and daughter Treiza Bebawy, 60, and Meriam Bebawy, 23 – were later charged with affray; however, media reports say the two failed to appear in court back in May to have their case heard. It’s unclear what has become of the brawlers since.
Anyway, relive the memorable stoush below.
