Data reveals that LONDON has the MOST complaining Karens out of any other city in the UK

Since emerging in 2019 as an internet pop-cult meme, a “Karen” has become synonymous with demanding to speak to managers, complaining and an unearned sense of self-importance. A customer service nightmare.

A new study from Bionic, the business comparison experts, has analysed over 1 million Trustpilot reviews to find out who the most common complainers really are and where they live. The study also reveals which names are most likely to become the future “Karen”.

London is the Karen capital of the UK, with 29,000 resident Karens
