"Karen" movie decried as Jordan Peele knockoff after trailer drops https://t.co/6GG7JwNMGn— Newsweek Culture (@NewsweekCulture) June 22, 2021
Trailer for film Karen prompted widespread derision after viewers branded it a rip-off of Jordan Peele.
The film tells the story of a racist white woman who seeks to terrorize her black neighbors.
People went straight to SM to take aim at what they said is a blatant attempt to imitate Peele's hit.
Karen was written and directed by His, Hers & the Truth director Coke Daniels.
It stars Orange Is The New Black actress Taryn Manning in the titular role, with actor Cory Hardrict and actress Jasmine Burke as the neighbors targeted by Karen.
The film doesn't yet have a release date.
