Hosed Karen refers to a woman in a viral video depicting her getting into an argument with the person filming her, resulting in the cameraperson spraying her with a garden hose. A shot of the woman gesturing towards another person off-screen saw use as a reaction image on Twitter a month after the video was first posted.

On the one hand, yes. Especially the "I'ma laugh at you every day from now on XD" tough guy shit was unnecessary.

But TBH "Don't answer Methany's stupid fucking questions" is a good habit to get into. These kinds of people do not give a single fuck if you apologize or not. They're tweaked out and paranoid constantly, so they're gonna make up shit in their heads about you no matter what.

The real answer is the third option, ignore the bitch and go inside, then call the cops if she tries to drag her drugged out ass up the steps to beat on your door about it.
