A new trailer for the upcoming thriller Karen was released last week, and Twitter users have been quick to brand it as a knock-off of Jordan Peele‘s acclaimed Get Out

News about the film, which stars Orange Is The New Black‘s Taryn Manning as an entitled white woman, first surfaced last year. According to DeadlineManning plays a woman named Karen White, who turns viciously racist when her new Black neighbors Assata and Malik move in next door. The film is written and directed by Coke Daniels and is being produced by Flixville USA and Burke Management.

According to TMZ, which first premiered the trailer on Friday, the film is slated for release in September. Manning told the outlet that she took on the role because she was bothered by the behavior of the “so-called Karens” in the real-world that overreact to situations via micro-aggressions.

The trailer gained attention on Twitter on Tuesday, with many users calling out the movie for having thematic similarities to Get Out.

But Daniels seems unfazed by the reactions on Twitter, and said he welcomes the comparison to Peele’s seminal film. “Trending on Twitter!!” he wrote in his Instagram story on Tuesday. “Keep comparing Karen to Get Out! We’ll receive that!” he added.

Speaking of Jordan Peele, the actor-turned director announced in January that he was retiring from acting to focus more on working behind the camera.
