Artist Is Selling 'Karen' Halloween Masks Because 'They're The Real Monsters Of 2020'

Looking for a way to truly terrify people this Halloween? Well, we may have found just the costume for you…
It’s fair to say that 2020 hasn’t been one of the greats for obvious reasons, so anything even remotely amusing is very much welcomed - enter Los Angeles artist, Jason Adcock.
Jason has created his very own 'Karen' Halloween masks, based on the ubiquitous meme that’s definitely has us all chuckling at some point over the last few months.
Speaking to Business Insider, Jason said: "I was starting on this year's Halloween projects and kept seeing ‘Karens' pop up in my news feed, so I thought, ‘Damn this is the real monster of 2020’."
A post on Instagram revealing the scary mask is captioned: "Kamorascostumes- on Etsy ! It’s never to early to shop for #Halloween #costumes . 2020 is the year of the KAREN! Scare all ur friends with ur big hair and narrow mind .”
In case you’re wondering what the actual definition of a ‘Karen’ is, according to Dictionary.com: "Karen is a pejorative slang term for an obnoxious, angry, entitled, and often racist middle-aged white woman who uses her privilege to get her way or police other people's behaviours.
"As featured in memes, Karen is generally stereotyped as having a blonde bob haircut, asking to speak to retail and restaurant managers to voice complaints or make demands, and being an anti-vaxx, Generation X soccer mom.
"In 2020, Karen spread as a label used to call out white women who were captured in viral videos engaging in what are widely seen as racist acts.”
Of course, with everything still very much up in the air regarding the ever changing situation with Covid, whether Halloween parties are actually a thing this year remains to be seen.
But that doesn’t mean to say we can’t all get dressed up and have a bit of fun does it? And I can’t think of a scarier costume to be honest…
If you do fancy getting your hands on a Karen mask, according to Business Insider, they’ll set you back $180 (£140) and take three to four weeks to process.
