Bill Maher offers 'signs you're a Karen' list: 'You were voted most likely to make a citizen's arrest'

HBO's Bill MaherWilliam (Bill) MaherJuan Williams: Time for boldness from Biden Maher presses Bolton for not backing Biden: How could he 'be worse' than Trump? Bill Maher: Black people must demand whites 'stop culturally appropriating how mad they are about racism' MORE offered his "signs you are a Karen" list on Friday night, with the "Real Time" host going after a white woman who called police on a black man in New York's Central Park this week after he asked her to put her dog on a leash.

“People called this woman a ‘Karen.’ This is a new term but not a new concept,” the comedian and commentator said on his show while recording from his backyard studio in Los Angeles. “We’ve had 'Clueless White Girl' and 'Becky.' I think is in this tradition. It’s a white woman of privilege, sometimes racist."

"It’s hard to define, so we thought we would, as a public service, for any middle-aged white women who wonder, ‘Maybe I am a Karen,’ tell you some signs," he continued.

“In high school, you were voted most likely to make a citizen’s arrest. Yeah, that would be one," Maher joked. “You park in the handicap spot because of a gluten intolerance. You threatened to call immigration during a pedicure. When you’re at the baseball stadium and your team loses you demand to speak to the manager. When Samuel L. Jackson says, ‘What’s in your wallet?’ you pepper spray the TV. That’s a definite sign.”

“You repeatedly cancel Ubers until you get a driver with a ‘normal’ name," he added to the list. “And when a friend says, ‘This is my fiancee,’ you say, ‘This is America, damn it, speak English!’” 

Amy Cooper was fired by her employer, Franklin Templeton, on Tuesday after video went viral in which she claimed she was being threatened after a man who said he was birdwatching in the area asked her to put her dog on a leash. She has since apologized.

The original video filmed by Melody Cooper, who is not related to Amy Cooper, has been viewed nearly 44 million times.
