They said they liked the way I explained passages from the Bible, which was easier to understand and started to be successful. Afterwards, I rented a place, which became a church”, said Renato in an interview.

How Karen Kardasha came about

The character Karen Kardasha appeared in Renato Shippee's life by chance.

Indeed, it all started in October 2020 in a joke on Renato's Instagram. He was answering some questions from his friends about how to stop being a muggle. In the stories, he was using a filter with a woman's makeup giving tips on how to win a rich husband.

The joke, in turn, was not well received by all of Renato's followers, as many people stopped following his profile after the joke. Therefore, Renato then created a new profile on Instagram, just for the character Karen Kardasha. In fact, the character's name is inspired by the Kardashians.

“I made a joke in stories, some people really liked it, but others not so much. I ended up losing a lot of followers the first day I played the game and as I had a lot of fun doing it, I decided, that same day, to create my own profile for her”, Renato told the R7 website.

As from the first days, he saw that this idea had great potential, soon Renato began to see a business emerging there. Therefore, he patented the name, bought a website domain, created the character's own filter, and of course, created a profile for Karen on all social networks. And thus the famous Karen Kardasha was born.

Karen's profile on Instagram currently has more than 6 million followers and almost 2 million on TikTok.

Controversies involving Karen Kardasha

Renato Shippee's character was recently involved in a controversy with the trans community, being accused of TransFake.

In fact, it all started when the funk singer Mc Trans took a stand in favor of real trans people, real women, who often lose space to drag queens who use female performance to be successful.

However, the case did not stop there. Antra, a trans entity, also took a stance on the issue. The entity raised the issue that drag queens need to be careful not to “enter into transfake territory”. Furthermore, he also said that the “hegemonic femininity” of these artists who perform drag could end up contributing to the dehumanization of real trans people.

Furthermore, other trans women added that these performances, like Karen Kardasha's, can hinder society's understanding of what it means to be trans and what it means to be drag.
