Lena Waithe is drawing criticism and comparisons to Jordan Peele for her and Little Marvin‘s forthcoming Amazon anthology series, “Them.”
Ironically, the official trailer for “Them” dropped on the two-year anniversary of the release of Jordan Peele’s thriller, Us.
Some people are criticizing Lena Waithe for selling black trauma while others dragged her for “biting” off of Jordan’s films and for her alleged lack of creativity.
Peep the tweets below.
Full transparency – when I watched the “Them” trailer I immediately drew my own Us comparisons.
However, I still plan to watch and support the project.
