On the internet, the name ‘Karen’ has long been synonymous with the image of an entitled, spoiled, and annoying woman who wants to ruin everybody’s day. While the exact origins of the meme are unknown, KnowYourMeme draws attention to the fact that what may have started it all may have been Karen Smith’s character in the brilliant movie Mean Girls (does anybody else rewatch it at least once a year?) about a teenager named Cady Heron educated in Africa going to public school in Illinois.

The hashtag #karen went viral on Twitter all thanks to the storm, and the social media website is full of Karen memes. Some of them were all about how the hurricane will most likely be arguing with your manager over something petty, while others were sharing hilarious reaction pics.

Tropical storm Karen is no longer technically a storm as of Monday afternoon — it was downgraded to a depression, but this might still change in the future. Karen formed near Grenada on Sunday, passed the Grenadines and is on its way towards Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

CNN warns that even though Karen has weakened (and probably can’t annoy your manager too much), it is still potentially dangerous. That’s because the storm may bring enough rain that it can cause flash flooding and mudslides. Especially in mountainous and hilly areas. Most people on the internet are probably hoping that Karen ends up being only annoying, not dangerous, though.

She's just a Karen of another name. Many Karens aren't even named Karen. Karen- not a name, but a state of mind.
