In what might be her dumbest take yet (and that’s really saying a lot), MSNBC host Joy Reid claimed that Elon Musk had appropriated his “Karen” insult from black people.
Watch her make a fool of herself here:
That’s right. Reid, as you can watch in the video, says:
“So for so many reasons, being a freeloader, and a selfish and disrespectful one, and for misappropriating black vernacular for misogynistic purposes, Elon Musk is the absolute worst”
Reid’s comments came after Elon excoriated Elizabeth Warren on Twitter, eventually calling her “Senator Karen,” in what might have been one of his funniest comments yet.
And, though Reid labeled Elon’s hilarious comments as “misogynistic,” she herself has used the insult in the past, saying Smollett should be excused for falsely reporting a hate crime because “Karens” have falsely reported crimes in the past.
Furthermore, though Reid, a black woman, has used the “Karen” insult, it’s far from being a unique part of the “black vernacular.” Rather, it’s a quite common insult used to describe middle-aged women that are difficult to deal with.
Given that definition, perhaps Musk should call Joy Reid a “Karen.” She sure seems to be the embodiment of the term.
