Video appears to show 'Karen' ripping hula hooper in playground

What a circus!

A ranting “Karen” seemingly left a record-breaking hula hooping circus performer in a spin — attacking her in a Las Vegas playground for revealing her sports bra while practicing with her family.

“I am still shaken by this!” wrote Getti Kehayova, 43, as she shared footage that has been seen more than 2.4 million times by Wednesday — including many questioning if it was a skit by the athlete who is the wife of an Emmy award-winning cinematographer.

The clip — supposedly filmed by a supportive fellow park-goer — starts with Kehayova being confronted as she spins her hoop while hanging upside down on some monkey bars.

“It’s just a sports bra,” says Kehayova, who holds the Guinness World Record for the largest hoop spun by a woman at more than 17 feet.

“But everybody around here can see that you’re half-naked right there!” insists the still-unidentified stranger, in a short skirt and pushing a sleeping baby in a stroller.

“This is a place where kids play. This is a place for families — for families!” she yells, growing increasingly irate.

“You can’t just be half-naked up there!”

She then asks the performer’s confused-looking husband, Michael Tushaus — a five-time Emmy award-winning cinematographer and filmmaker — if he is “OK with this.”

“Yes,” he replies, telling the woman, “You don’t have to make a scene with this.”

The stranger further flips when she spots Kehayova’s son recording, ranting, “Everybody’s always with the TikTok. I mean that is so obscene.

“What kind of a mother are you? This is unbelievable!” she asks Kehayova, who grew up as a circus acrobat and motorcycle-riding daredevil.

“I have a baby here … you’re going to wake up my baby!” the woman says, seemingly oblivious to the fact she is the only one raising her voice.

Telling Kehayova it was “completely unacceptable,” she then grabs the performer’s Hula Hoop — and dramatically slams it on the ground.

Kehayova finally climbs down, asking, “Are you serious? Don’t touch my stuff.”

When she points out that the ranting stranger’s own short skirt is “revealing,” the woman again snatches her hoop, this time flinging it at least 20-feet away.

“Let me show you what you can do for a TikTok,” she says, standing proudly with her hands on her hips as she tells Kehayova, “Yeah, so find somewhere else to bare your belly.”

Users commented that the video seemed staged, suggested it was "very much an acted out skit."

As the parties walk off, the man filming the clip tells the stranger, “See you, psycho.”

The video, which Kehayova shared on Aug. 29, had followers praising her and her family so reacting so calmly — while others questioned whether it was a “prank” staged by the filmmaker’s family.

“Was this the rehearsal or the real take?” one follower asked, while others suggested it was “very much an acted out skit.”

“Academy award worthy this is not,” another wrote.

Neither Kehayova nor Tushaus immediately responded to The Post’s requests for comment.
