Taryn Manning, who stars as the lead actress in new movie, "Karen" says white women have been attacking her for taking on the role.

"I was, kind of, taking it on head first and, like, responding to people, you know, 'I'm so sorry you feel that way. I was attacked a lot by white women who felt that I had betrayed my own race," she said in a recent interview with  Mr. Warburton Magazine.

She says the white women are not taking it well, "but the point was to illuminate something that needs to be brought to the forefront so we can start to change humanity." 

Manning, who starred in Orange Is The New Black adds,

"Some people are hard-wired, maybe they grew up in a household where they never even really had a chance to think for themselves. It's just this repetitive generational cycle that they're in, there's that. There's maybe an experience with someone like that, that scarred their frontal lobes, or it's just a bad day."
