New Zealand Prime Minister suggests opposition leader is a 'Karen'

New Zealand Parliament

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called leader of the opposition Judith Collins as a 'Karen'.

During a debate on hate speech law, the New Zealand Prime Minister said: "I disagree with the member's statement on Twitter that somehow it would be illegal to call someone a 'Karen.'

"That is absolutely incorrect, and I apologise, that means these laws will not protect that member from such a claim."

The comment managed to get quite the laugh from parliament.

Jacinda Ardern's statement was a response to opposition leader Collins' tweet: "Will calling a middle-aged white woman a ‘Karen’ now be a crime under Jacinda Ardern’s law?"
