The new film Get Out has been a smash hit both at the box office ($33.4 million) and with critics — the film even scored an incredible 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. That all changed, unfortunately, when film critic and notorious hater Armond White gave the film it's sole negative review.
White's piece, which was published by The National Review, said, "Get Out is the recrudescence of Obama-era unconsciousness. Reducing racial politics to trite horror-comedy" and called the film an "Obama movie for Tarantino fans." Sadly, his negative review brought Get Out's 100 percent score down to 99 percent — and one of the film's stars is pissed.
Lakeith Stanfield, who plays a supporting role in Get Out and is best known for his breakout role of Darius in Atlanta, had no problem telling White just how he felt about his review:

And Armond White ruins Get Out's 100% Tomatometer score. Just like he did for Toy Story 3 and Social Network. But he liked Norbit.— Daniel Brown (@DanielBrownDC) February 27, 2017
Hey @RottenTomatoes, can you just go ahead and remove Armond White's access as 'critic'? Thanks.— J.P. Polewczak (@jp_polewczak) February 28, 2017

"Everyone liked this movie except Armond White" should sell people on GET OUT more than "100% on Rotten Tomatoes"— Da7e Gonzales (@Da7e) March 1, 2017
You actually have to start worrying if you get a *good* review from Armond White. #GetOut— jelani cobb (@jelani9) March 1, 2017
