Jordan Peele‘s Get Out has people speaking from sea to shining sea, as the 100% rated film from Rotten Tomatoes is finally out in theaters.
The horror film marks the directorial debut of the former Key & Peele star, yet, those unofficial critics—better known as armchair critics—are sharing their thoughts about the film. Labeling it and slamming it down as so-called “anti-white” and “racist” for its portrayal of white characters, these so-called experts have generated 11 pages worth of comments, according to Mic.com.
With such an opinionated group of people who believe they know the merits and standards of what makes up a successful satirical horror film, below, you can check out a few excerpts and share your own opinion with us @Okayplayer.
“It’s blatantly pushing a racist stereotype agenda against white people.”
“100% anti-white film used as propaganda. White shaming white women to date black guys ore they are racist. This movie was poorly acted and directed.”
“It is forgettable if it weren’t for the disgusting racism involved and a Hollywood narrative. Sadly, I wasted my money on this so I can be insulted on this D-level ‘thriller’.”
“I really wanted to like it but just couldn’t get past the racial stereotypes and social message.”
“Mixing the white people are evil message and a horror movie into one film just killed the experience.”
“Boring plot with an anti-white agenda.”
To quote the Twitizen @1942BS, who had an excellent tweet that should be shared throughout the weekend, see below:
White ppl are mad for being portrayed as racist in “Get Out.” We’ve been portrayed as thugs and drug dealers for decades. They’ll live. pic.twitter.com/dMj6UbFA1M
