Trader Joe’s opened an all-new store in North Hollywood, CA Friday morning, and the long-awaited opening was quite the affair!

The company really pulled out all the stops too: ribbons, balloons, and quality produce at competitive prices!

It was TOTALLY the biggest store opening of the week. Everybody who is anybody was there. Even ‘Karen’ paid a surprise visit to the new Trader Joe’s.



an obnoxious, angry, entitled, and often racist middle-aged white woman who uses her privilege to get her way or police other people’s behaviors.


Karen showed up at the new Trader Joe’s in North Hollywood and quickly went viral after she was captured ranting at fellow shoppers and calling them “demonic pigs” after being told to wear a mask inside the store (as you do).

What are the odds this lady is single and an aspiring actress?

Facing a severe public backlash from the incident, ‘Karen’ asked to speak with the manager of Fox-11 in Los Angeles to tell her side of the story.

‘Karen’ claims she has a medical condition that makes it very difficult for her to breathe through a mask, adding that she made arrangements with the manager of the store ahead of time, but ended up at the wrong store.

“I am a human being. I felt helpless,” Karen told FOX 11.

“They made it look like I am this crazy person, and yes, I did throw my basket to the ground,”  she said.

The More You Know: California Governor Gavin Newsom just issued a state order requiring all citizens to wear a mask in public.
