Say hello to a movie the Karens are going to be all upset about. Coke Daniels’ is directing a Karen movie. Literally entitled, Karen, a suspense thriller starring Orange Is The New Black’s Taryn Manning.
If you know anything about the term, that Karens in Karen-like-fashion have deemed racist, it is used to describe caucasion women who don’t mind their business and call 911 on blacks, who are minding their business doing everyday things. Things such as selling lemonade, birdwatching, jogging, the list, unfortunately, goes on.
