THIS is the shocking moment an anti-mask “Karen” was hauled out of a Florida bagel shop after not following Covid protocols and claiming she was being “kidnapped.”
Cindy Falco-DiCorrado – a 62-year-old resident of Boynton Beach, Florida – was arrested on Thursday after she refused to wear a mask inside an Einstein Bros. Bagels near Boca Raton.
Karen/Ken is a pejorative term for an entitled white woman/man.
The popular term has frequently been used to describe entitled middle-class white women who talk down to people of color.
“Get your hand off of me. You are kidnapping me. I have done nothing wrong – I am not a criminal,” Falco-DiCorrado is heard yelling at the officer trying to arrest her.
“You need to read the Constitution. Get your hands off of me. You don’t have the right to do this.”
As of Monday night, the footage obtained more than 158,000 views.
Falco-DiCorrado, donning leopard-print clothing, was sitting inside the bagel shop when she refused to leave.
“I’m asking him to take his hand off me. He has no right to kidnap me. This is kidnapping,” she said to the person recording the video, adding: “This is because the police department are ignorant of the Constitutional rights.”
After the police officer repeatedly, and calmly, asked the woman to get up and go outside – only to have her refuse – another cop walked inside to assist with escorting the seemingly crazed woman outside.
Approximately two minutes into the video, Falco-DiCorrado is seen outside the police car as two officers handcuffed her.
Falco-DiCorrado tried to resist arrest and let out multiple high-pitch screams before saying: “I can’t breathe” – the infamous words of George Floyd, who died in police custody on May 25, 2020.
She was also heard saying “In the name of Jesus!” more than once.
According to the Palm Beach Post, a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office report revealed Falco-DiCorrado had told employees and customers at the bagel store: “You are violating the Constitution.
“I am not leaving. That’s discrimination.”
Falco-DiCorrado’s face mask incident comes after she was featured on “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” denouncing face masks.
In the show’s June 28, 2020 episode, Falco-DiCorrado and other residents of Palm Beach County, Florida, spoke out against mandated masks during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Now there’s so much evidence the CDC itself said they made a mistake,” Falco-DiCorrado said in the footage.
“There’s not enough to make this a pandemic. This is a planned-demic.”
Falco-DiCorrado was released from the Palm Beach County Jail one day after her arrest, after she posted a $2,000 bond, the news outlet reported.
Court records revealed she has pleaded guilty to trespassing and resisting an officer without violence.
She told the The Palm Beach Post on Saturday: “American freedoms are being taking away.
“It’s a sad day when you have people and officers picking on people for just being alive. This is an abuse of humanity.”

Falco-DiCorrado – a former member of the Boynton Beach Community Redevelopment Agency advisory board – was previously arrested for trespassing and resisting arrest without violence, according to the Palm Beach Post.
She was arrested in May 2020 at an anti-mask protest in Lake Worth Beach.
Back in 2017 she was pushed to resign from her advisory board position after she was accused of being a white supremacist.
