Here’s some positive news for you. The nation can expect to see a rapid decline in managers being called and other types of entitled behavior in the not-so-distant future.

That’s right folks. A recently-released report indicates that a decrease in the number of Karens has seen a sharp decrease over the past year, and we have the internet to thank for it.

KUTV reported on Friday: “Less ‘Karens’ will be asking for the manager after data reveals that the name plummeted in popularity in 2020, the lowest ranking for the name since 1927.”

The report further notes that “according to the Social Security Administration, the name ‘Karen’ dropped 171 spots in baby name rankings for girls in 2020, coming in as the 831s [sic] most popular name.”

“That means in 2020, there were just 325 baby girls named Karen, a huge drop from the 33,000 baby girls named Karen in 1965.

It is not difficult to imagine the social influences responsible for this decrease in the number of Karens born last year, is it? Over the past few years, the “Karen” internet trope became somewhat of a national inside joke used to described certain types of individuals who get on our collective nerves.

But what, exactly, is a Karen?

The “Karen” moniker refers to middle-aged white women who behave in an entitled and often obnoxious manner, especially in stores, eating establishments, and other scenarios. These are types of women who will ask for a manager when they are not allowed to return items a year after purchasing them. They are the mask Nazis who loudly berate people for not wearing three masks at a time, while taking a walk. And yes, they are the ones who enjoy calling police on black people for no valid reason.

The moniker has become so prevalent in American society that crazed Democrats even tried to pass a law outlawing Karen-ous behavior, particularly when it comes to how it might impact black Americans. (See: Karen Laws
