If you didn’t know, the term “Karen” has been used a lot lately on social media, describing a white woman who makes racist comments towards Black people.

In San Francisco, officials are trying to pass the The “CAREN Act” (Caution Against Racially Exploitative Non-Emergencies) to make it illegal for people to make discriminatory, racially biased 911 calls.

Taryn‘s character, who is named Karen White, makes it her mission to get rid of the new Black family that moved into her neighborhood by any means necessary.

The movie is being written and directed by Coke Daniels.

Taryn Manning Expresses Concern for Britney Spears, But Doesn't Necessarily Agree with 'Free Britney' Movement

Taryn Manning is reminiscing on working with Britney Spears and she has thoughts on the #FreeBritney movement.

The two stars worked together on the 2002 movie Crossroads and Taryn shared a still from the film on Instagram. She said, “Such a wonderful time with this crew! #retro #crossroads.”

Britney‘s fans have been preaching “Free Britney” for years now as they believe she should be released from the conservatorship that is controlled by her dad Jamie Spears and her team. Taryn addressed this in her post.

Britney I know you’re strong af and have your own brain and thought process. To me you look happy and like you’re having a blast! Keep up the happy posts and your faith in Jesus Christ,” Taryn said.

She added, “How about instead of #freebritney we say #GodIsWatchingOverBritney. How about let’s give this wonderful woman the dignity she deserves and earned ✝️ Until you know the facts stop speculating and perpetuating the father of lies. We all know she’s under a type of control that’s unfair and things will be fixed. Have faith. Wish her well! Send good vibes of no fear! Please!”

Another celebrity posted this week in support of the #FreeBritney movement.

“Response to media: First off, my apologies to Britney. I had no media agenda. Never was I seeking attention, nor press via Britney. The reason why I posted was because many fans of her contact me daily BEGGING me to do something. I used to not respond,” she wrote.

“Then, I started to ask for proof of these allegations they presented. Finally, I posted because it was eating away at me for months. What if there is something wrong? I wanted my post to be about the forgotten ones, hence the sentiment. I did not expect the amount of hate in my inbox though, and I don’t need it in my life, people can be cruel. I like Britney, we had a blast at that time, and I want her happy like any decent human would want for another. The Christian in me sees the Christian in her. You are so very loved ✝️,” she went on to write.

Taryn Manning Clarifies Her Instagram Activity, Says She Was Hacked

Orange is the New Black‘s Taryn Manning is clarifying her Instagram activity over the past several days and saying she was hacked.

First, Taryn posted a troubling post last week that read, “Unfortunate uncontrollable circumstances that no one could help with have made it this way. When someone is crying for help from someone who is after your life and soul. Please listen. No one deserves to have another person single handedly ruin their life to the point they are paralyzed and never leave in fear. I tried to tell everyone. No one cared.”

Over the weekend, Taryn then slammed Orange is the New Black, writing, “This show hurt me more than anything has in my life and if this is what I have to do to push what I stand for I will…I have to speak out before anything happens to me. F—k fame! This show hurt humans. You will never truly know but many were hurt!”

Now, Taryn Manning is saying all of these messages were a result of a hack.

“My account was so epically hacked. I am back in and I am sorry,” she posted in a photo on Instagram, and also updated her “About Me” to read, “My account is hacked and I am sorry for these messages:( i am back in now and was able to erase!”

Taryn Manning Slams 'Orange is New Black' Co-Stars, Says 'This Show Hurt Me So Bad'

Taryn Manning is speaking out against Orange is the New Black.

Just one day after the final season was released on Netflix, the 40-year-old actress took to Instagram on Saturday (July 27) to slam the show and her co-stars.

“This show hurt me more than anything has in my life and if this is what I have to do to push what I stand for I will,” Taryn wrote in a lengthy post. “I have to speak out before anything happens to me. F—k fame! This show hurt humans. You will never truly know but many were hurt!”

Taryn
was also noticeably missing from the OITNB premiere earlier this week. She also recently alarmed fans when she shared another post where fans thought she was suicidal.

“I do not need to ever work again in this town. I’ve been dropped by everyone for having a backbone,” Taryn added. “I was dropped because a person terrorizes me daily and them too. So my team, they just turn away. Like a car accident. Rubber neck but don’t help. F—k show biz. A disgrace.”

Taryn concluded her post by writing, “Not one cast member cares about me. Just watch.”

Co-star Lori Petty – who plays Lolly on the show – commented on the post writing, “Hey. I love you” along with three heart emojis.

Taryn then responded, ““Thx bubs I know you do. And I love you. I am giving up everything to speak on how awful this career is and how awful we are treated. How I never knew if I was coming back yet I had seven optional seasons. How I didn’t even know how to plan my life, organize anything cause everything was a secret. Self serving bulls—t, for whatever sick agenda. How some of the most dear characters were just not there anymore. My pals. F—k this show. This show hurt me so bad.”
