Woman argues with police after continuously harassing King's Guard horse
| Last updated
A woman has been dubbed a ‘Karen’ after she was filmed touching and harassing a King’s Guard horse.
In the latest example of a member of the public touching a horse, which is a huge no-no, the woman in question didn't heed anyone's advice.
A man who filmed the woman touch the horse several times, despite being told off by the police because of her actions, called her ‘bang out of order’.
In the six-minute clip, she can be seen grabbing at the horse’s rein to which the King’s Guard snaps at her and yells: “Get off the rein!”
After the man filming calls her an ‘idiot’, the pair soon trade insults back and forth as she continues to touch the horse despite all the warnings.
“Just one time,” she tells the officer, however the man behind the camera clarifies it was actually the second time.
“I won’t do it again, officer. Sorry about that one, sorry,” she says, before the officer walks off.
She then proceeds to stroke the horse, which leads to the man chastising her once more.
“You are a very rude boy,” she responds.
The whole situation then plays out like an odd scene in a sitcom. “I’ll get a life when you get a brain,” he replies, to which she says: “I’ve got many brains, thank you very much.”
When the woman continues petting and stroking the horse, the man appears to be speak to someone off camera to share his disgust about the situation.
“She’s bang out of order,” he says. “I didn’t want to go too far, she’s a woman at the end of the day, but I just can’t be having that.”
She then instructs a child to join her in petting the horse, despite the massive sign warning against potential kicking or biting.
“That really is not on,” the man says, as she kisses the horses’ head. “She’s actually taking the mick.”
The footage was uploaded by London City Walks and has been viewed 7.7M times since it was uploaded two days ago.
TikTok users have also taken to the comments to discuss the woman’s behaviour. One person complained: “Can we start a petition to stop the public from touching the horse? I was there a few weeks back and I walked past and that was it. Why do they feel.”
Another social media user joked: “you just know that horse wakes up and DREADS going to work because he knows he’s gonna see her.”
While a third wrote: “More people in the crowd should speak up!!”
