Homophobic ‘Karen’s’ Anti-Pride Rant Gets Shut Down On TikTok

 'Karen' called into the wrong person in this viral video. 

There's nothing like Pride month to bring out the Karens in force. They have opinions and they want managers (and customer service reps) everywhere to know it. But one such rant and subsequent shutdown has gone viral on TikTok, and we love to see it.

TikTok user Hannah (@actuallynothx) shared a video showing her interaction with a woman who called to complain about the company she works for posting Pride month content on their social media.

During the call, the woman made a series of homophobic remarks, including saying that her child seeing the Pride month content is similar to someone slipping something into her drink. "Hollywood is glorifying 'this culture'," she added. "It is wrong to glorify this culture, that that is what you're doing and I'm so offended."

It's at this point that Hannah spoke up, explaining that slipping something in a drink has nothing to do with Pride month, and that, "people all around the world and all around the country and businesses have been glorifying straight culture for hundreds and hundreds of years."

As the call ended and it became clear that Hannah wasn't going to play along with the Karen's rant, the caller said that Hannah was a "disgusting human being," to which Hannah replied, "well, I think you're disgusting" and hung up the phone.

The video quickly started racking up views with commenters voicing their support for Hannah staying calm while putting the caller in her place. They also asked for more and Hannah posted a second video in which the same caller rants about society and children committing suicide. Again, Hannah corrects the caller, saying, "Actually, most of those youths are committing suicide due to a lack of acceptance."

Needless to say, the caller didn't appreciate Hannah's response, but judging by the comments, TikTokers did.
