The best part of TikTok is that it can expose people who are in the wrong, which is exactly what happened in the case of a Utah-based " Karen." A young woman shared a TikTok video of a mom who approaches their group to pull down one of the girl’s mini skirts because it’s “too short.” The situation escalates to the point where the restaurant has to step in.

But it goes beyond that. And the commenters have some opinions about how the situation was handled. Naturally, we have some opinions too, and one of them is that grown women shouldn’t comment on and police other women’s outfits, especially if that includes touching them without their consent.

A “Karen” complained about a 19-year-old woman’s mini skirt in a public restaurant.

In April 2024, a young woman named CC Snow (@ccsnowwww) and her friends went out to one of Utah’s nicest restaurants to celebrate their friend’s birthday. It was a Saturday night, so the restaurant was busy and full of high school students celebrating their proms.

As the girls are waiting for their table, a mom comes up to them and says, “I happen to work with the state and if I have to watch your a-- cheeks hanging out again, I will call CPS.” She continues to threaten them with calls to government services, thinking CC’s friend is a minor (although she’s 19), while the girls defend their friend and the Karen goes even further by pulling down the girl’s skirt.

While we have no idea how short the girl’s skirt was, it’s never appropriate for a stranger to touch a young woman’s body or clothing. In addition, the right way to go about it would have just been to quietly let the girl know that her butt cheeks are peeking out if that was really the case, instead of loudly harassing the group in the middle of a busy restaurant.

Eventually, the restaurant’s staff stepped in (they might have been busy before since the restaurant was packed) and told the mom to sit back down. As the girls went about their evening, they decided on a course of action that would prove controversial to commenters, who all agreed that the Karen was initially in the wrong.

Commenters disagreed about how the girls handled the confrontation.

While everybody went about their nights separately, the girls filmed most of the incident and shared it to a local Facebook group. Someone came forward to share that the woman’s name is Ida Ann Lorenzo, so CC found Ida on Facebook and LinkedIn. They were able to figure out that she works for the Attorney General of Utah and decided to file a complaint to Ida’s employer.

However, CC also decided to reach out on Facebook and send Ida questionable messages. Ida revealed that she was chaperoning her teenage sons on their prom celebration dinner and didn’t want them to be looking at a young woman’s behind. (We hate to say it, Ida, but we’re sure they’ve seen worse.)

Even still, from CC’s description of the Facebook exchange in which Ida eventually blocked CC, it doesn’t sound like that was the best idea. In a court of law, it’s possible that her messages could be seen as threatening, even if that wasn’t the intent.

Others also suggested that the girls should have filed a complaint with the police first and then gone to Ida’s employer with the official complaint. And it seems like they did! In a final update, CC shared that Ida was arrested for sexual battery.

Regardless, the young women are proof that future generations are ready to take injustices into their own hands to make sure bullies get what they deserve.
