After months of katastrophic Karening by a krazed kabal of Karens, writer/director Coke Daniels made “Karen”–a racially-charged Drama/Thriller that he celebrated with the cast, crew and celebrity friends at a private screening in Atlanta.

An endlessly controversial topic, “Karen” follows a racist white woman who makes it her mission to displace the new Black family who just moved into the neighborhood. Accustomed to having her way, Karen isn’t prepared for the proudly Black husband-wife duo (played by Cory Hardrict and Jasmine Burke) determined not to back down without a fight.

In a predictable twist, Coke Daniels was accused of copying Jordan Peele’s Oscar-nominated smash “Get Out” and swiftly responded in an interview with TMZ.

Check out the teaser trailer below:

“Ours is about an entitled racist neighbor who tries to run the Black family out [of] the neighborhood [and] his is about a mixed-race couple that goes to visit and meet the family.”

“I don’t agree with the narrative that we ripped anything from Get Out, they’re two totally different films,” Daniels told TMZ.

“Karen” hits video-on-demand on Friday, September 3, and will air on BET on Tuesday, September 14.

Similar, absolutely, but completely different in ways that will make audiences squirm uncomfortably when they’re not yelling at the screen. Oh yes, it’s quite the experience.
