Get to stepping, Karen.

Anti-maskers may not have to go home, but they have to get the heck up off of flights.
According to the New York Post, the woman was kicked off the plane when she refused to wear a mask. The crowd then mocked the anti-mask white woman, sending her off with cheers as she was escorted off the plane.
In a video posted to social media, the visibly embittered woman is seen collecting her bags after being told to leave.
“Just leave,” one passenger said as the disgraced Karen took her sweet time.
The anti-masker then looks back at the passengers one more time before exiting the plane and makes a snide comment.
“You can clap all you want,” she said.
Passenger Jordan Slade, who filmed the incident on the flight traveling from Ohio to North Carolina, said the woman was making other problems as well.
"She was argumentative from the gate. She demanded to be boarded first and was causing an obvious scene. Once boarded she was making phone calls and arguing with the attendant when asked to put her phone away," Slade told Daily Mail.
With the unidentified belligerent passenger causing an extended delay on the flight, the plane had to go back to the airport to refuel. Other passengers were concerned about getting to their destinations on time.
"A woman in the back got up from her seat and sort of confronted the attendant saying she was going to miss her connection and then directed the conversation back to the woman," Slade said.
Still, it was the Karen's disregard for the safety of others that was most infuriating.
"She also refused to wear a mask putting others on the flight at risk. Another passenger even got up to confront her about her behavior with no mask," Slade said.
Karens usually have an excuse for not wearing a mask. This one said she has a medical condition that prevents her from wearing a face covering.
