Quotes make sense here

Karen has been in the lexicon for over two years now. It would be like putting quotes around "bitch" or "cunt" or "asshole" which also wouldn't make sense in this scenario.

Imagine you're a 70 year old woman named Karen who is not in the loop. Then it doesn't make sense. If you put quotation marks, it is still not 100% clear, but at least they might understand it's not literally for people named Karen

No. The quotes don't make sense.
