Viral TikTok Shows Karen Backs Up In New Car, Denying Responsibility

A man was waiting to have his new sports car inspected when a Karen backed up in her car as she tried to exit the parking lot of the Honda dealership in which the two were parked.

In a now-viral TikTok released Thursday, Jack Bitar, or @ bitarbuilt_fk8, shared footage of a Karen backing up in his parked 2021 Honda Civic Type R. The video has racked up over 3 million views. It doesn’t appear that there were any cars in front of Karen’s car, so it’s unclear why she decided to back up before moving forward. Bitar wrote in TikTok that he was parked at a location designated for the service line.

The video continues as Bitar and the Karens inspect the damage to Bitar’s car. A dealership sales representative approaches them to see what has happened. According to Bitar, the sales rep said, “Ooof ma’am, it’s going to be expensive. ”

Bitar says the Karens attempted to “extricate themselves from responsibility” for the collision, but there were witnesses around the concession who saw the incident take place.

In a follow-up video, Bitar further explains the situation and shows the damage to his car. He reports a cracked grille, a cracked panel and a dislodged gasket on the front of his car. He says he needs to replace the whole bumper. He adds that he didn’t have enough reaction time to turn on his car and back up before the woman hit him.

He goes on to share that the Karens asked him about how he knew she caused the crash.

“You felt the impact,” Bitar continued, referring to the Karens. “The car you were in shook and I was parked. So clearly, an impact had been created. The service representatives saw it.

“Shit is coming,” Bitar resigns. “It sucks.”

People in the comments have expressed support for Bitar and burned out Karen’s driving skills.

“She has to go back to the drivers Ed if she randomly backs up without looking behind her,” one comment read.

“Ohh man I feel [your] pain so sorry that happened, man, ”said another.

“Why would she back down if there was no one in front of her,” wrote one user.

“Always those kinds of people who want to hold everyone but themselves to account,” one person said of the Karens.

The Daily Dot has contacted Bitar for comment.
