First, the name Karen has been popularized. Now, if your name is Ashley, you’re going to be dragged through the mud on TikTok.

Another creator, Lady Strange 91, shared her startling take on the “air cushion Ashley” trend, which ended up leaving her late husband’s urn and his luggage at the door.
“Her job is easy,” the creator says of Ashley taking on the responsibilities of her marriage, adding, “He no longer needs help with bathing or eating, toileting or walking.” She then ruefully admits, “I miss it to Take care of him.
