Jordan Peele Is Using Kanye's Tweets As Inspiration For A 'Get Out' Sequel

Jordan Peele has joked about "writing" a sequel to Get Out inspired by recent tweets by Kanye West, who made reference to the film's "sunken place" amidst comments praising Donald Trump.

It comes a week after the Atlanta-born rapper, designer and self-professed 'free-thinker' announced that he would be writing a philosophical novel "in real-time" live on Twitter.

West spent the last few days making bold statements, posting about a wide range of subjects including fashion, music and sharing "dragon energy" with the US President – who he calls "my brother".

He claimed to be making more money from shoes than Michael Jordan, took a dig at Barack Obama and insisted "you can say anything as long as you put the right emoji next to it.".

The Life of Pablo producer then shared a picture of the beige and vacant hallways from inside his Los Angeles home, alongside the caption: "Do this look like the sunken place".

Peele quoted the tweet and wrote: "*Gets inspired *Starts writing 'Get Out 2'."

Fans have since been sharing their ideas for a sequel, which includes names like "Get Out 2: It All Falls Down" and "Get Out 2: Getting Back In So We Can Get Out Again"

Others are calling out Kanye's lacklustre interior design job, describing it as "the architectural equivalent of unseasoned chicken".

But Peele is by no means the only celebrity responding to the controversial tweets. After tweeting about Trump, West turned his aim to former President Obama.

"Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed," he said, presumably a reference to murder rates.

This prompted Boy George to respond. 

"Everything in the world changed! The frequency, the vibe, there was love in the air," he said, "[Barack Obama] was sleek and cool and like Fred Astaire!"

On Wednesday, his wife and mother of his three children, Kim Kardashian, took to Twitter to defend her husband, slamming "media outlets" who "made this about Kanye's mental health".

She said: "He's a free thinker, is that not allowed in America? Because some of his ideas differ from yours you have to throw in the mental health card?"

"That's just not fair. He's actually out of the sunken place when he's being himself – which is very expressive."

After defending the tweets about Mr Trump, Kardashian said: "Mental Health is no joke and the media needs to stop spitting that out so casually. Bottom line."

Kanye also faced criticism after expressing support for conservative commentator Candace Owens – who described Black Lives Matter protestors as "whiners" who are promoting a "victim mentality".
