In the video, the woman slams her hand and Norwegian passport onto the counter, threatening to call the embassy on the worker’s “motherf*cking ass.” The woman proceeds to cross her arms and make kissing faces, mocking the staff member.

TikTok users dubbed the woman “KLIA Karen,” with "Karen" being a slang term often used to refer to white women with an enlarged sense of entitlement.

Although Lee has refused to reveal further details regarding the incident, KLIA district police chief Iram Abd Rahman stated the tourist received a RM100 (approximately $23) fine for inappropriate behavior, reported The Straits Times.
“The woman had gone into the airplane and then she claimed that she had left some of her stuff and demanded to go out, but she was not allowed to do so, hence she made a scene,” Imran explained. “She was arrested and we charged her for behaving indecently and she was fined RM100.”
In response to the video, one user commented, “Customer not always right."
