There's been a lot of pressure on celebrities to join the George Floyd protests, either online or in person.
That goes double for black celebrities.
We're not sure Karen Civil is a celebrity, but we are sure the media personality and accused thief's protest outfit has caught the attention of black Twitter, and not in a good way.
I I hear there’s a Karen acting up at Trader Joe’s..— Karen Civil (@KarenCivil) June 1, 2020
Be careful, she talking with her chest. pic.twitter.com/LvkqWKzPfz
Here's some of the reaction:
Karen Civil wearing a t-shirt with George Floyd’s killer’s face on it, an Off-White face mask after Virgil donated $50 to the cause AND those ugly Yeezy slides and she wants to talk about tone deaf lol— joey ⚜️ (@thejoeyway) June 2, 2020

Karen Civil really thought black Twitter was gonna go up for that picture. I just know she pressed “tweet” with conviction.— Kennedy ✨ (@HelloKennedi) June 2, 2020

Karen Civil stole tens of thousands of dollars from someone and kicked a homeless man’s cup over. Are y’all really surprised at her antics?— elvira hancock. (@renealise) June 2, 2020
Y’all killing Karen Civil for wearing Off White and Yeezy but y’all never stopped wearing Gucci 🤦🏾♂️— 🤑Moolah💰 (@hardheadjmoney) June 2, 2020
Karen Civil girl WHY would you promote a shirt with that killers face on it???🤦🏽♀️ I don’t care if Black designers made it. They shouldn’t have! See this is the exception when people SHOULD be criticized and talked about! Not the ones who are genuinely trying to help. This...NO!— T.C. (@QueenTreezy) June 2, 2020
Karen Civil in full off white. She is also the first person to wear the killer on her shirt. Here you are, ladies and gentlemen, another coon for the wall of fame. If you didn't have a reason before to not fuck with her here you go. https://t.co/UhqTM8ujrm— Costas Joannides (@flyerthanapilot) June 2, 2020

What do you think? Tone-deaf or is Twitter too sensitive?
