Why We Need to Stop Blaming "Bad Karens" on People Named Karen
We've all seen them; videos of a spluttering, irate person, usually a middle-aged female, loudly telling someone else how they should live their life. It typically begins with the person being filmed spewing righteous indignation - mid-meltdown - toward the person filming for all the world to see.

Trustpilot is a website where people who have a verified purchase from a company can go to leave a review. The website looked at the biggest online complainers and found that the people who left the most negative feedback are not only NOT named Karen, they're not even female.

Of the top 15 most disgruntled one-star reviewers, only two were female names, and neither made the top 10. According to Trustpilot, here are the top complainers:
Arizona's Top Complainer Named
Arizona's top one-star reviewer is John, closely followed by David. While we can't support this with video footage, since most of the unhinged screamers don't disclose their names, we can track the digital trends on websites where the user's first name is in the clear.
