American horror hit movie GETOUT will be placed in the comedy category at the GoldenGlobes and many are not pleased and don’t agree with that placement.
Director Jordan Peele and Actor Lil Rey Howery took to Twitter to react to the news as other Twitter users also reacted to it with many stating that America still views racism as a joke.
One social media user wrote; One funny character doesn’t make a movie a comedy. This was done purposefully. While another said This is so disrespectful and so many ways I mean to just discredit the people who put this movie together the message behind it and to say that it will be in a comedy category is an insult to the insult
‘Get Out’ is a documentary.
