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.

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.

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
