Domino's Pizza has dropped a promotion offering free pizza to women named Karen after it was met with a backlash.
In recent years, the name "Karen" has been used as an insult to describe white middle-aged women who are perceived to be obnoxious or racist.
The pizza franchise's New Zealand arm initially said it wanted to give "nice Karens" a break from negativity.
But some said it was tone-deaf, ignored more important issues, and "rewarded privilege".

Yeah, roger that. :P
I used to work with a Karen (her disposition, not her name) who could talk for hours on end in an unbroken stream, without pausing even for a second to think what she was going to say next. It’s a losing battle arguing with that sort, and they know it.
I have a sister that is named Karen and fits the description to a T.
Sounds like a bunch of Karens got pissed they didn’t get free pizza.....................
I have a hobby that has been proven effective at removing all Karens within a one hundred foot radius.
How is this possible, you say?
Because—Karens believe that smelling one molecule of this substance can cause permanent heart and lung damage.
I smoke cigars. :-)
In college I dated a girl named Karen. She was an Early Childhood Education major, so I’m sure she’s a true ‘Karen’ now. Hope she didn’t inherit her mom’s gigantic bubble butt.
It said it merely “wanted to bring a smile to customers who are doing the right thing - Karen the nurse, Karen the teacher, Karen the mum”.
Humor died in 2020. Killed by the self-righteous cancel culture.
If y’all want to see something REALLY funny, look up ‘Domino’s Pizza Zimbabwe’.
Humor didnt just die. It was murdered.
But some said it was tone-deaf, ignored more important issues, and “rewarded privilege”.
Well then. They should try free pizzas to Mo’Ne$shia or Latrina.
Pick the best way to save America:
1. Going around calling people “Karens” (whatever that means); or
2. Getting out the message that Trump is building-up America whle Democrats are tearing it down.
But as far as America goes, why can't one do both?
Would like to know: How “oldas” is your Karen-like sister?
Longevity apparently running in your family and all!
Exactly,,Karen demanded to see the mgr.
I smoke cigars. :-)
That's utter nonsense. But they sure do stink. :-)
“There is _no_ safe level of tobacco smoke.”
Not one molecule.
I am _not_ making this up—and yeah, people believe that stupidity is “science”.
But cigar smoke sure does stink!
Cheap cigar smoke stinks.
My wife loves the smell of quality Cubans (and if I told you how I get them I would have to shoot you...) ;-)
Yes, it does. Expensive cigar smoke stinks too. To my own sensibilities, of course.
