A video is going viral of a white woman in the Gelson's parking lot calling 9-1-1 claiming she feels threatened after she damages another person's vehicle and refuses to provide insurance.

The Instagram paged titled "Karen's Going Wild" published the video on Wednesday stating the woman called 9-1-1 on a Latin man stating he was "threatening her" after he asked for her insurance information. 

The term "Karen" is a slang term for an obnoxious, angry, entitled, and often racist middle-aged white woman who uses her privilege to get her way or police other people's behaviors. In the past year, the term has gained traction as videos have gone viral showing white women engaging in racist acts, according to dictionary.com

It appears the video was captured in front of the Cox Communications building in the parking lot of the Gelson's market on upper State Street. The man who captured the video claims the woman damaged his vehicle as he shows a large scrape across the passenger side mirror and is refusing to provide her insurance information because he "looks a certain way."

"I do want to give you the insurance I just gotta call 911 first," the woman is heard saying on the video. She's then seen yelling at the man stating "I'm afraid of you" as he calmly asks for her insurance.

At the end of the video, the woman admits she doesn't have her insurance information. Under California Vehicle Code Section 16029, it is illegal to drive a vehicle without evidence of financial responsibility.

“I’m afraid” #SantaBarbara #California This “Karen” seems to refused to produce her insurance info and instead called the police and said that she was being threatened - even when the video evidence shows otherwise. In the end she seems to admit to don’t having it. “Under California Vehicle Code Section 16029, it is illegal to drive a vehicle without EVIDENCE of financial responsibility. Typically, this is referred to as driving without insurance. This forms of financial responsibility MUST be carried with you in your vehicle at all times. In most cases, drivers carry a company-issued insurance card or paper that includes the driver’s name and information, and the insurance company’s name, address, policy number, and dates of coverage” https://www.wklaw.com/practice-areas/fight-traffic-ticket-california/driving-without-insurance-in-california/ | | | #pavelpaulinich #vote #karens #kevins #karensgoingwild #hispanic #karen #kevin #now #news #karensgonewild #video #videooftheday #post #hispanic #postoftheday #latin #latinx #chicano #latinosfortrump #mexicanamerican #cuban #latinos #racist #racism #america #mexicanamerican #mexican

Granted, this woman is reacting in quite an odd way, that's just an individual behaving strange. Tagging her and calling her by a epitaph is wrong. How is it any different from using a racist slur? I think it Universal that we don't call people derogatory names based of any color, race or creed.

SB1961 - calling someone "Karen" is FAR different from racial slurs. White, entitled, usually racist, women, have not been oppressed for hundreds of years after their ancestors were stolen from their home and enslaved. Calling them "Karen" is not to further oppress them, but rather to call out their immoral behavior.

Sagepup gives a fake history lesson. "Some" white people bought slaves? Then who was doing most of the buying, martians? If you are arguing that the fact that a few black people owned slaves, and that there are still slaves in today's world, justifies slavery, then just say that.

"Let them douche it out." That comment is just too too fine. This lady is upset and quite obviously has mental issues. The guy is the one bringing up race/racism. HE'S the one attributing her behavior toward his looks, his skin color. All I see is an agitated, mentally disturbed woman who fears men. I'm glad she called the police. Let them "douche it out."

Thats funny Minibeast because all I see from your comment is a middle aged white woman deflecting from the very obvious race issue here. Why do you think he started filming in the first place? Because she said she was going to call the cops and statistically/historically that would not go well for him as police are more inclined to believe white women. If he didn't capture this video who knows what would have happened. Minibest, check your white privilege and obvious ignorance.

JUL 23, 2020 04:52 PM. Whatever you do, don't tell my Mom and Pop I suddenly, magically switched sexes and aged 20 years. Or are you calling me way over the top in touch with my feminine side and also telling me I'm not aging well? Personal attacks are so . . . lame. (Oh, and thanks for the "Minibest," but I prefer Minibeast.)

This is my old neighbor. She has acute emotional and mental issues. She probably would have acted that way regardless of who she was dealing with as long as he was male. I don't fault the victim for thinking and acting the way he did, but I have a lot more sympathy for the woman and the uncontrollable and impossible things that she has gone through that don't show on the surface. I can't stand "karens" as much as anyone else, but this woman is not a "karen", nor is she a racist, inebriated or anything she can control herself. She needs care and meds. People are so quick to judge and assume. One of the biggest problems with social media (edhat, Instagram where this is viral) is there is zero due process and anyone is free to type what's in their head as "fact".

"Emotionally unstable menopause years"? Wow.

248, the 1950s are calling. They miss you and want you back. Sounds like you need to read a few books yourself. May I suggest some that have been written in this century?

And FYI, Karens are motivated by ignorance, racism and/or entitlement, not by hormones.

This woman is so far beyond menopause, I don't understand why anyone (apart from the Menopausal Woman post on this thread and those who chose to refute that) thinks that that stage of a woman's life has any bearing at all on this particular woman's behavior. I witnessed my Mother and sisters go through menopause. Guess what? Many women weather the hormonal changes just fine. Not all of them get crazy or go off the rails or become "emotionally unstable." One thing menopausal certainly aren't is age 65+. Another misconception debunked.

He is being an ass, he says that she is stating to the police that she feels threatened by him when she did not say that she said she was afraid. He is manipulating her and putting words in her mouth confusing her. He is a Darren he is an Opportunist.

Roger then why did she call the cops? Why else would she call 911 other than to report what she thinks was a dangerous situation? "Afraid" "threatened" are the same here - she call 911 because a Latino man asked for her to give her insurance info after she hit his car.

Roger, you're just wrong here. Please educate yourself. You use edhat as a platform and you should be more cognizant about these issues before posting. This woman is on camera saying "i am afraid," he didn't put words in her mouth. Also, she called 911 taking up valuable and important time to our dispatchers who are trying to help people who REALLY need it. You of all people should know that.

I agree the woman is on camera saying that she is afraid but he is saying over and over that she is saying that he is threatening her I never heard her say that. He is getting louder and louder intimidating it is confusing here..As far as calling 911 taking up valuable time of our dispatchers many times when people call the business line they are transferred to the dispatcher. You really should hear some of the calls that go through the dispatcher..There is nothing wrong with calling the police when you are confused he was confusing her granted she could have handed over her info and things could have gone smoother it might have helped if he was alittle more understanding instead he wants to be famous on You Tube..

SMUR is right. This woman is a single rung higher than the NYC woman who called the cops and claimed the black man was threatening her life. This woman even admits to him that she is not being threatened, then walks a few steps away and tells 911 he IS threatening her - blatant lie.

AHEMAHEM. Do you have the phone # for Police Dispatch memorized? Is it on your speed dial? If you ever feel you need to call for help from local police, are you going to google the non-911 phone # first? Do most people even know the difference between Police Dispatch and 911?
