If Armond White’s grandmother made a movie, he’d probably give it a negative review if everyone else liked it. It’s fine to have a different opinion about a movie, but it seems as though White has made a career out of being a contrarian. And as the young people would say, he’s the definition of a hater.
White’s review of the film Get Out appeared in the conservative National Review, and he referred to it as a “get whitey” film “tailored to please the liberal status quo.” White also wrote that filmmaker Jordan Peele “manipulates the Trayvon Martin myth the same way Obama himself did when he pandered by saying, ‘Trayvon Martin could have been my son.’”
And White didn’t stop there. He also went on to say that film star Daniel Kaluuya’s “dark-skin/bright-teeth image inadvertently recalls the old Sambo archetype. ... Peele seems too caught up in exploiting modern narcissism to notice old repulsion.”
I mean, damn. Can Kaluuya help that he has perfect teeth and smooth, dark skin?
It was this review that ruined the movie’s 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it was this review that got Get Out co-star Lakeith Stanfield pissed off on Twitter.
Basically, on top of feeling that White is a hater, Stanfield thinks he’s a bitch. I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time White has been called a bitch by someone. I mean, you’re a total bitch when you can muster up the energy to give Toy Story 3 and Up negative reviews.
