One user wrote “A lot of younger kids are defending her and calling the woman who called her out a Karen. I think what they fail the realize is that she represents a business, no matter what the business is. She’s in uniform, at her place of work filming a tiktok. Add onto that the fact that she’s saying she doesn’t take precautions to protect her patients. If she gets fired, she fired herself.”
