'Costco Karen' throws tantrum and sits on the floor of the superstore after she was denied service for refusing to put on a face mask yelling, 'I am an American. I have constitutional rights!'

A woman dubbed 'Costco Karen' sat on the floor of the superstore, refused to move and declared 'I have constitutional rights!' after she was asked to put on a face mask.  
Shocking video of the confrontation, believed to have unfolded at the returns desk of a Costco in Hillsboro, Oregon, shows an employee asking an older woman to wear a mask in the store to follow its coronavirus policy.
The woman had a face mask dangling from one ear but refused to put it on completely to cover her mouth.  
'You just have to tell me that you have one. Well, then you have to wear it. You have to wear your mask in public. This is private property,' the female employee said in the video posted on June 30.
'I am not a member of Costco,' the woman is heard snapping back.

'Want me to get that taken care of for you? Well, then you’re going to have to put your mask on,' the employee says.
'I will not,' the woman says curtly, adding the mask requirement is 'your problem'.
'Well then come back another time,' the employee says.
'I want to speak to your boss,' the outraged woman replies.

'He’s gonna require the same. If you want to step outside here I’ll have him come meet you outside. You need to do that it’s our policy. We’re going to walk outside,' the employee says.
The woman is heard admitting that she does not have a medical condition that could make it unsafe for her to wear a mask.
But instead of following the employee, the outraged woman plops onto the floor and sits cross legged in a sit-in protest.

The employee tries to help her saying: 'Can I get you a chair outside? There’s a place to sit. Want me to help you up?'
Instead the woman gets up and sits in another place on the main floor of the store, further away from shoppers, refusing to leave the store.
People leaving the store with their carts are seen maneuvering around the woman. 
At the end of the clip the manager is seen walking towards her saying: 'Hello what can I do for you?'
It's not clear what she wanted to do in store, but the manager repeatedly asked if she had a membership to the store. 
Costco initiated a policy requiring all customers to wear face masks, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization say is an effective way to reduce the spread of the contagious COVID-19

  1. Notice she did not burn or loot the store. It seems the intent of this article and the entire racist/sexist "Karen" movement is to limit protest to certain individuals and causes. Anyone else protesting is to be subjected to condescension and derision. For example if you're black and protesting about nonsensical abstractions like "white privilege: or "systemic racism" you're fine. They would still be in there protesting if that was the case. But if you want to protest the Corona reaction scam them you're a Karen and are removed, fired, and cancelled.

    1. I completely agree with you comment!
      As a Hospital employee OT, for twenty five years and having to wear masks
      throughout my career,we never had to wear them continuously all day, as it causes
      too many health issues! The other issue,is that they aren't designed to stop a
      coronavirus! The weave of an N95 mask is 4 microns and a coronavirus approx. 1.3!
      It's like a beachball going through a doorway! They are better at stopping bacterial infections.

    2. You are so right. OSHA standards demand minimum 19.5% oxygen for safe breathing. Open air provides 20.8% but when blocked by a mask available oxygen is down to between 18.5% and 17% depending on the mask. This changes to pH in the blood and weakens the immunity system. So where's OSHA, part of the scam? Masks are for surgeons to prevent their bacteria from entering their patients body. COVID-19 is a thousand times smaller than bacteria. So "maskers", be my guest, deprive yourself of safe breathing, breath back your own Co2 and build up the bacteria on your lips ... others, don't wear a mask stay healthy and strong. Besides, why are the maskers moralizing us when they are safe behind their masks??

  4. I admire her for sticking up against the nonsense but she probably went about it the wrong way. I'm not sure what the right way is being the few of us that know this is all bullshit are living in a insane world. What's the right way to protest against insanity when you live in a world of insanity?? If I didn't need a source of income I would personally move as far away as possible from the cities. I am wondering how long it will be before someone dies from wearing one of these masks and a lawsuit is filed. As far as I know all these commands that the governors are giving to wear a mask have no authority in law. They basically suspend the Constitution and make their own dictatorial laws.

  9. A "Karen" is someone who criticizes those who don't wear a mask. Obvious attempt at changing the terminology to begin attacking those who don't conform. This lady has the right idea but still wants to give her money to a store with whose policy she disagrees. BDS for the mask Nazis.
