Viral video showing a Georgia law enforcement officer crying over delays with her McDonald’s drive-through order caused “Officer Karen” and “McMuffin” to trend on Twitter Wednesday.
The video, posted by a popular conservative Twitter account, identified the officer only as Stacey, a 15-year veteran of an undisclosed agency who had to wait for her mobile order at a McDonald’s in Richmond Hill, Georgia.
“It doesn’t matter how many hours I’ve been up, it doesn’t matter what I’ve done for anyone, right now I’m too nervous to take a meal from McDonald’s because I can’t see it being made,” she said in the video, wiping tears.

“Please just give us a break. I don’t know how much more I can take,” she pleaded.
The Richmond Hill Police Department posted a Facebook message Wednesday saying the woman was an employee of another local agency.
“We have received multiple phone calls and messages about a video that was posted by a female officer complaining about her service at a local restaurant,” the message said. “The officer in the video does not work for nor represent the Richmond Hill Police Department. We have contacted the agency she works for and have passed along our concerns.”
Twitter uses roasted the officer in online comments, with some questioning her fitness to carry a gun.
Many pointed out that Rayshard Brooks, a black man found sleeping in his car, was fatally shot by police at a Wendy’s restaurant in Atlanta Friday night.
They also mentioned George Floyd, the black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes last month, and Breonna Taylor, the black EMT in Kentucky who was shot to death in her own home by plainclothes police officers serving a no-knock warrant in March.
“You know who can’t order any more food because they were in a nervous terror as they lay there being killed or were shot at least 8 times in their own home? You know who was just killed in a fast food parking lot?” Anthony V. Clark commented.
“Everyone in the comments are so mad this poor woman had to wait a few extra minutes for her mcmuffin just wait till we tell them how long black people have been waiting for equality,” other user tweeted.
“Officer Karen crying about her McMuffin order is really about her making an outrageous insinuation that her food could be poisoned to generate sympathy and anger among white men who feel the need to help her. It’s like the false accusations used against black men for generations,” Eugene Gu tweeted.
The “Officer Karen” video was posted after police union leaders in New York suggested three NYPD officers were intentionally sickened by bleach-laced food at a Manhattan Shake Shack restaurant.
It was later determined the incident was unintentional.
“After a thorough investigation by the NYPD’s Manhattan South investigators, it has been determined that there was no criminality” by Shake Shack workers, NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said in a tweet early Tuesday.
