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.

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"
