The elderly woman had told the man to "go back to Oakland" and he shut her up with a rant that left his wife grinning ear to ear.
A Black woman got the front row seat as she watched her husband take down a racist woman in a predominantly white neighborhood. He called out the elderly woman and delivered an epic verbal smackdown that shut up the entitled woman. The video was shared on TikTok and has gone viral. While the video doesn't capture the actual interaction, you can hear the whole conversation. The video is focused entirely on the woman listening to her husband take down the elderly woman, in what many are calling a 'masterclass in insulting.' She couldn't help but contain her glee as her husband delivers one verbal blow after another.
The video was posted by Monique Upchurch who goes by @moemoe_90' on TikTok. The audio of the conversation can be heard in the background. The woman assumed she could just insult him and get away with it but she picked the wrong day and wrong person. He rained down on her with insult after insult and every time she tried to interrupt, the intensity just rose until she played the age card. "I'm 80-years-old," she said, hoping to evoke sympathy and cash in some age-related benefits but he wasn't having it, especially after she told him to 'go back to Oakland.' "Age don't matter because it seems like you're racist," he tells her. At one point in the video, he asks her if she has her 'covid' outfit on.

As the NSFW rant reached fever pitch, she asked him to "control his mouth." He didn't relent, telling her, "You need to control your a** cause it stinks," said the man. "You seem like you're racist, because you see me riding by and you tell a Black person to go back to Oakland. So it's Black people in Oakland, right? Ain't no Black people in Alameda?" He asks the woman, who's decided to quieten down. Monique Upchurch's expression is one of glee. With a front-row seat to the takedown, the only thing she was missing was popcorn.
Monique Upchurch's TikTok followers enjoyed the takedown, with many jokingly asking for a tutorial to execute such a flawless takedown. "That's the last time she ever says anything in the outside world," wrote one person. Another commented, "That was a masterclass of insults. Shakespeare would be proud." Another person wrote, "Sometimes, it has to be said, they still think slavery is in effect." Many commented that she deserved the tongue-lashing she got even if she was 80-years-old. "She forgot what decade/century she was living in for a second. He just reminded her."
Many lauded the man for his clap-back and said entitled racists don't deserve the respect they often get. "There is no reason to be polite to a Karen. They don't need to get a word in, they do not need to be heard," wrote one person while another commented, "We need more of this. All the Karen videos I see and the victims are too respectful. This is the energy we need."
