Another “Karen” has been caught wine-ing over social-distancing measures.
A UK shopper was so incensed over a supermarket’s coronavirus safeguard that she ransacked a wine display, as seen in wild closed-circuit television footage first posted by the Telegraph and other UK outlets. The video was recorded at the height of lockdown in May — but is just now going viral as retailers experience increased abuse from customers over coronavirus precautions, reports Surrey Live.
The incident, which occurred at the Lingfield High Street Co-op grocery store in Surrey, was sparked after staff reprimanded the female shopper for ignoring the one-way system they implemented to enforce social distancing.
She was none too pleased about the reminder. In the dramatic clip, the disgruntled customer can be seen ripping down the contents of two whole liquor shelves, causing wine bottles to shatter on the floor, leaving a puddle of red wine and broken glass in the aisle.
“I’ve done nothing wrong!” the shopper can be heard screaming as she slams her hands against a partition meant to shield employees from the coronavirus.
