Karen doesn’t think TikToker ‘looks’ disabled for parking spot so he confronts her with missing leg

An Australian social media influencer man confronted an elderly woman in McDonalds after she questioned his disabled parking permit, and angrily showed her his prosthetic leg.

Paniora Nukunuku, a social worker based in Sydney, was challenged by the woman while he was sitting in his car.

He uploaded the footage of the encounter on TikTok, sharing it with his 158,000 followers.

‘Obviously you can’t see my disability if I’m in the car, so please tell me why this old lady thought it would be a great idea to approach me and knock on my window and demand to know whether this is mine or not?’ he said.

He captioned the video: ‘You are not the disability police.’

Nukunuku, who highlights discrimination on his social media accounts, then followed the woman into McDonalds, and showed her his missing leg.

She said she ‘desperately needs it’, and ‘that there were times’ – but he cuts her off before she can finish.

‘Is it because I don’t look disabled? Is it because I don’t look old that you want to approach me?’ he says.

He captioned the video on Instagram: ‘putting people in their place for having the audacity to question people’s disabilities’.

Nukunuku says he asked McDonald’s to provide him with the surveillance footage of the woman approaching his vehicle.

They told him they were unable to hand over any footage unless it is being requested by law enforcement.

The TikTok user says he drove to the police station in an attempt to file a police report, but the police said they could not help as the woman had not committed any crime.

Nukunuku is now urging his followers to demand on social media that McDonald’s hand over the footage.

‘This is why boomers suck,’ he says. ‘Because for some reason old people are the only group of people that can be disabled people.’

But some users are questioning the TikTok user’s intentions and why he would need video of the encounter.

‘I’m confused as to why you need the footage?’ @angiepamje said. ‘It’s happened, you’ve reacted, we’ve learned from the lady’s mistakes. Time to move on.’
