It’s all the rage right now to film jackasses, post it on the internets until someone identifies them, figure out where they work and get them fired. I think we need an official thread to document it. Originally posted a few in the thread about Amy Cooper, but I think there needs to be a more generic thread since there are so many of these.
Starting it off, this bitch, identified by internet sleuths as Janene Hoskovec refused to wear a mask in a supermarket, and proceeded to fake cough on people. She was filmed, it was posted on the internets, people contacted her employer, and she was fired.
On the one hand, what the heck does her job have to do with her being a dipshit as a shopper in a supermarket? but otoh, her coworkers likely loathed her anyway, so good riddance.
This woman bothers me more than Amy Cooper. Wear a goddamn mask if you’re supposed to. Amy DID wear a mask even in central park outside.
Actually, in reading the posts, it seems that this maskless woman actually targeted a woman and her kid to cough on them. She wasn’t even told to wear a mask initially. She just started coughing on them looking for trouble while they were minding their own business.
My mom’s best friend when I was growing up was named “Gay”. I’m not sure if that was here actual given name or a nickname. I think she ended up at the very least changing what she wanted people to call her, but I don’t remember to what.
We kids thought it was hillarious when my mom left a little note for her once that simply said, “Gay, Susan*. Love ya’”

One of my best friends has 3 women named Karen who live in the 4 houses around her. She says all three live up to the name. I also remember a Karen from my HS class who lived up to the name, and by accounts still does 30 years later. Might explain how her life has gone.
This woman who got fired from SAP? Good. Shitty behavior has consequences. Like it or not, when you’re oot and aboot you represent your company even if you’re not acting in their capacity and most people might not know who you work for. (It’s 2021, people will find out if they want.) As noted above, if she’s shitty in public she was probably shitty in the workplace too.
I know a few Karen’s. It was a pretty popular name for a few decades, and many are indeed of the age where they might be expected to behave like the stereotype. Most I’ve known wouldn’t go “full Karen” on anybody but maybe one former co-worker might.
