France has a storied history of discrimination against immigrants, particularly immigrants from countries that were once French colonial outposts in the Middle East and Africa. But apparently this sentiment does not extend to immigrants if they happen to be white.

Karen Watson lives in Pays de la Loire, France. It is a small city on the western side of the country. Karen is also an immigrant from the U.K.

However, this didn't stop her from having this to say:

The full text reads:

"I live in France in a rural area that voted for Macron. We had no immigrants here at all - but they are moving in now. We recently had our first rape! At a car boot sale we did, we had a family who were so insistent and intimidating..trying to push us to sell at ridiculous prices!"

People were quick to point out her hypocrisy.

As an English ex-pat, Karen is, in fact, an immigrant. While the original tweet has since been deleted, Twitter users tracked it down and figured out what it was about.

Watson's tweet was in response to a tweet by @caolmid, a Twitter user known for inflammatory Islamophobic rhetoric.


People incisively blasted her.




People tried to explain the scenario via metaphor.



And most were simply flabbergasted.





Hey, Karen? The call is coming from inside the house.

Secrets, lies, and betrayal. That is often the foundation of a family. We can go through life thinking our families are perfect and everyone loves one another, that's the training that keeps us from searching for the skeletons in the closets.

But our secrets will always find a way to break free. We may not even be alive to see the outcome, which is anti-climactic, but they will be out of the dark eventually. And once we learn what some loved ones are hiding, life as we know it can be obliterated.

Some secrets may best be buried. So be really sure you want to know everything.

Redditor u/mykirto wanted to hear about all the family drama they've been uncovered, by asking:

What is the most f**ked up thing you found about your family?

There are some things that society just seems to expect adult humans to be able to do, but it looks like not everyone got the memo.

Whether due to never being taught, or a simple inability to pick up the skill no matter how much you practice, there are some things that some folks just can't do.

I was a teenager before I was finally able to properly ride a bicycle, and even now I'm not a stranger to falling off. Let me tell you: flying over the handle bars of a bike hurt a heck of a lot more at 25 than it did at 15.
