Jay Pharoah Would Like To Be Credited For Coining The Term 'Karen'

Jay Pharoah is claiming that he’s the one who first came up with labeling entitled white women “Karen”.

The Saturday Night Live alum appeared on PeopleTV’s Couch Surfing where he opened up about the origin of the term and shared he would like to get credit for it.

“I’m the one who started it,” he said. “The white woman named Karen, I experienced that. I said that and when I saw all the memes, I was like, ‘Really, what?’”

Jay went on, “You can ask any of my friends. For years, I did that joke. Came to the show, refined it, everything, and when everything dropped, they were like ‘Oh, my G, they owe you money. Nah, they stole that.’”

A Karen is defined as someone perceived as entitled or demanding beyond the scope of what is appropriate or necessary, and is typically assigned to white woman, who uses her privilege to demand her own way at the expense of others.

This reality star recently admitted she was one.

Earlier this year, Jay opened up about the police brutality he faced in recent years. See what he shared…

SNL Comedian Jay Pharaoh Says Police Kneeled On His Neck In Recent Incident & He Has Video

Jay Pharoah is opening up about his own encounter with police which led to the police putting their own knees on his neck.

The SNL comedian spoke about the event during an interview on CBS’ The Talk.

“I was actually on Ventura, I was exercising, as I’m walking across the street…I see an officer to the left of me. I’m not thinking anything of it because I’m a law abiding citizen,” he says. “I see him coming with guns blazing, I see him say, ‘Get on the ground, put your hands up like you’re an airplane.’ As he’s looking at me I’m thinking that he’s making a mistake.”

Jay went on, explaining that the police told him that he “fit the description of a Black man” they were in pursuit of, who was also wearing a gray t-shirt and sweatpants.

In security footage, you can see one of the officers pins him to the ground, and put a knee on his neck, handcuffing him.
