Nail salon Karen gets criticized by clients for being rude on TikTok
Two nail salon clients put a Karen in her shoes for being rude to them and the nail technician in a TikTok that went viral.
The video, posted Sunday by @ ms.kadii, shows the Karen talking to a nail salon employee and another woman. The woman then tells client Karen that she is rude and disrespectful.
“You came here and interrupted me and I wasn’t even finished,” the woman told the client.
“I’m not talking to you,” said the client.
“I’m telling you it’s disrespectful. And if I stand here and do something and you walk right in here and don’t even say excuse me, that’s already a problem, ”the woman said. “And then you came here without respecting my friend, that’s the second problem.”
She points to the salon employee when she refers to her “friend” and as soon as she does, another customer in the back shouts, “And she’s my friend too, okay?” I’m letting you know that you don’t disrespect him. Don’t come here talking crazy… I’ve been coming here for years, period, yes.
“Period!” the woman who started the confrontation nods as she leaves the living room. “You can call the police on her.”
While it’s unclear what happened until the video started, both women say the client walked in, was mean to the worker, and cut one of the women in line.
The woman who filmed the incident laughs and agrees with the two vigilantes in the living room: “You better defend her. “
Many people said they agreed with the ladies who put her in her shoes. The video now has 1.7 million views and over 293,000 likes.

“And the way that other woman cut Karen ‘And she’s my friend too….’ It gave me life, ”@nola_hgprincess said.
“It is rare that other customers present and witnessing something badly done to an employee speak up, so all my respect for the lady who intervened,” commented @ lc.love7.
It is not known exactly where the incident took place. The Daily Dot reached out to the poster via TikTok for comment.
