“Officer Karen” and “McMuffin” are trending on social media currently after a video of a police officer having a complete emotional breakdown over her McDonald’s Egg McMuffin order has gone viral.
In the clip, the woman, dubbed “Officer Karen,” breaks down in full tears because she’s afraid to eat an egg mcmuffin she had to wait a little bit longer for.
“I said ‘don’t bother with the food because right now I’m too nervous to take it.’ It doesn’t matter how many hours I’ve been up. It doesn’t matter what I’ve done for anyone. Right now I’m too nervous to take a meal from McDonald’s because I can’t see it being made. I don’t know what’s going on with people nowadays, but please, just give us a break. Please just give us a break. I don’t know how much more I can take. I have been in this for 15 years and I have never ever had such anxiety about waiting for McDonald’s drive-thru food. So please just have a heart and if you see an officer just tell them ‘thank you.’ Because I don’t hear ‘thank you’ enough anymore.”
Let’s just put things into perspective real quick…
Officer Karen's story about waiting for her McDonalds Egg McMuffin is way worse than the guy who was killed for sleeping on line at the Wendy's drive-thru. Yeah, it isn't. Get a grip lady.

This is the funniest thing on Twitter today. By far. If it helps the mental defectives who share in Officer Karen‘s pain, black folks have been waiting for their order for 100s of years and they get murdered instead of denied a McMuffin. Pound sand, fool.

The cops who killed Breonna Taylor have still not yet been charged. Meanwhile, Officer Karen is having a meltdown over a McMuffin.

You see "Officer Karen" trending and you’re like, “What could this be about?” Then you see the tape and your heart just breaks into a million pieces.
Imagine never knowing if your McMuffin is going to come home. Imagine living with that fear

This woman is emotionally unstable and does not need to be a cop.
