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.
