Seven 'Get Out' Conspiracy Theories Confirmed By Jordan Peele

"I honestly never thought people would pick up on this stuff so fast and I'm inspired to bring more."

Get Out was released earlier this year, but there's still plenty of elements and themes to dissect. From videos, memes and think-pieces, everyone believes their view of the film has a hint of truth in it. Writer director and creator of the smash film Jordan Peele decided to take some conspiracy theories up to task with Vanity Fair. 

Released Friday (Dec. 1), the comedian checked out some theories via Reddit to see if fans really caught some of the film's hidden messages. A few, he notes, were on the ball like The Deer Theory, which points out Chris' relationship with his mother and death. Another A+ theory was The John Malkovich theory, which connects the cult classic to Get Out via actress Catherine Keener, who starred in both films.

"It was definitely was not lost on me that I was able to get Catherine Keener in her second 'weird perspective living in someone else's brain movie,'" he said. "We joked about that and I'm a huge fan Being John Malkovich. I also sat down with Spike Jonze a few months ago and I told him this theory and we laughed about it. So as far as I know, it's true."

Peele says some of the theories are pretty far fetched, but he was genuinely surprised at the appreciation for the film's themes. "Some of y'all are crazy," he said. "I honestly never thought people would pick up on this stuff so fast and I'm inspired to bring more."

The Rod Theory (the entire movie is apart of Rod's imagination where he is the hero in the end) 

Peele: "I love this theory, it is a hundred percent false. Get Out is not some kind of daydream fantasy. It really happened. The f**ked up brain surgery thing happened."

The Grandpa Theory (the grandfather lived inside Walter per his obsession with being a fast black man)

"I always had this idea that the grandfather wanted to run just as fast as Jesse. There was a line that I wanted to put in the film but I decided not to because it would be too over the top. ("I finally beat ya Jesse!")

The Deer Theory (Watching something dying like he did when his mom passed away) 

"There's a whole parallel between the deer, Chris and Chris' mother. The suppressed memory of his mother dying after being hit by the car. The whole deer metaphor goes in so many different directions. The Buck is the animal Chris uses to kill the matriarch of Rose's family.

The Fruit Loops & Milk Theory (Rose keeps the colored fruit loops separate because, racist) 

"They're definitely representational of colored food and white food, but it's more so that she's a twisted girl who's got this sort of method. Ultimately,  the plan of the armitage is to mix, so partial credit goes to you.

The Rose Theory (everything Rose does has another meaning)

"If you've see the movie once, then you should watch it again just to see Rose cause everything she does has a different meaning."

The John Malkovich Theory 

"It was definitely not lost on me that I was able to get Catherine Keener in her second "weird perspective living in someone else's brain movie." We joked about that and I'm a huge fan of the movie. I also sat down with Spike Jonze a few months ago and I told him this theory and we laughed about it. So as far as I know, it's true."

Tomi Lahren On Cardi B's 'Dog-Walking' Threat: 'I Would Never Get Away With That'

Tomi Lahren paid a visit to Fox & Friends, where she discussed her Twitter feud with Cardi B. Last week after the "I Like It" rapper posted a video discussing the partial government shutdown, the right-wing pundit took to Twitter to write out her views on Cardi's comments.

"Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020," she wrote, which prompted Cardi to write that she will "dog walk" her.

“I just like to point out the left’s hypocrisy because can you imagine if I would threaten to dog walk Cardi B — or anyone else for that matter — as a conservative, as a Trump supporter?” Lahren said during her appearance on the show. “I would never get away with that but they’re able to do it, and the left applauds it... you can see that there are leftists with verified accounts who are not only laughing at the fact of me being ‘dog walked’ — they’re tweeting out memes showing me in a leash and a collar with Cardi B walking me. Beyond that, they are actually saying, ‘Yeah, she would hurt you, she would beat you up — I wish we could start a GoFundMe page so we can watch your teeth get knocked out.’"

She also criticized U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who wrote on Twitter that people shouldn't underestimate people from The Bronx (where she and Cardi hail from).

“Well, I’m not surprised at anything Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says, but again, I’m also impressed the way the left does the mental gymnastics to justify it,” she said. “...these are elected representatives who are endorsing and saying the same thing. So, you know, it’s really puzzling and troubling.”

Friendly reminder: after over a month, the government is still shut down.

Cardi B Will Reportedly Have Her Own Las Vegas Residency

Cardi B is reportedly getting her first Las Vegas residency. According to The Associated Press, the “Money” rapper will have a residency at the Palms Casino Resort in anticipation of the debut of its newest complex, KAOS.

“Above and Beyond, G-EAZY, Kaskade and Skrillex are among the other artists who will have exclusive residencies at the complex,” the report reads. KAOS will reportedly open in April. “KAOS is part of the Palms’ $690 million renovation that features state-of-the-art technology designed to enhance performances including a rotating 360-degree DJ booth.”

This news comes just a week after the announcement of Drake’s reported residency at the XS Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas. The musical reportedly “inked a 12-show deal over the next two years."

Cardi B has shown no signs of slowing down. She is currently nominated for five Grammy awards, and she is set to perform at the Bonnaroo Music Festival. She also made headlines recently for her thoughts about the current partial government shutdown, clapping back at detractors like Tomi Lahren.

"You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much," she wrote on Twitter with a statement aimed at the political pundit.

Illinois Man Awarded $1.25 Million After Cops Tackled Him For Stealing His Own Car

A former Northwestern University doctoral student was awarded $1.25 million after police tackled the then 25-year old assuming he was trying to steal a car that was actually his own.

The Associated Press reports Evanston City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz confirmed the settlement amount had been reached Wednesday. (Jan. 23) Crosby was an engineering major in 2015 when the incident occurred.

Crosby’s attorney Timothy Touhy said his client was attempting to repair something with his car when a white woman watching called local police to report what she thought was a robbery.

The unidentified woman then followed Crosby in his car as he left his apartment and headed to a science building on Northwestern's campus, giving police his location.

Crosby reportedly exited his vehicle with his hands up but was immediately tackled by law enforcement when he didn't obey orders to get on the ground. Cops later determined Crosby was the owner of the vehicle but charged him with resisting arrest.

A spokesman for the Evanston police said the use of force was justified at the time because officers assumed a theft was in progress. Crosby was the victim of knee strikes and open-handed strikes.

A judge threw out the charges.

“It’s his hope that as a result of this case, that all of us begin a discussion on implicit bias and begin to recognize it and begin to discuss it between yourselves and your friends,” said Steven Yonover, who represented Crosby in the case.
