The Trailer For Jordan Peele’s New Horror Film Has Audiences Freaked Out

It’s nothing like Comedy Central’s ‘Key and Peele’

The trailer for comedian Jordan Peele’s (Key and Peele, Keanu) latest film, Get Out, starts off looking like an interracial romance starring Daniel Kaluuya (Sicario) and Alison Williams (Girls). But when Kaluuya goes on a road trip to meet Williams’ parents he finds himself in a world that is terrifyingly hostile to people of color.

The film’s trailer has received kudos on social media for featuring an African-American actor in the lead role—a rarity for the horror genre. But it’s also causing a stir for taking on a host of controversial issues ripped directly from today’s headlines, including: white privilege, police brutality, classicism, interracial relationships, and ethnic stereotypes.

The trailer for Get Out is even more surprising given Peele’s history of working in comedy. “I’ve been wanting to do horror for a long time,” he told Forbes, “and luckily I’ve kind of gotten something of a training through comedy. I definitely felt confident in the fact that it’s a genre that all you need to work is the story and the scariness and the emotion. If you can get that you can make a decent movie in the genre.”

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the new trailer:

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
