SPOILER ALERT!!!

Get Out is a horror film written by Jordan Peele of Key and Peele fame and has already been touted as the best film of the year. If you haven’t already seen it, you should, and maybe you shouldn’t read this article because it is filled with SPOILERS!

You’ve been warned.

The bizarre tale follows Chris (Daniel Kalyuua) and his girlfriend, Rose, as they visit her family in upstate New York.  The audience soon discovers that the family is into some weird shenanigans where they lobotomize black people and steal their “genetically superior” bodies.

After a courageous escape, Chris then kills Rose’s family and is saved by his friend, played by Lil Rel Howery. The two drive away and Rose dies from her injuries. A happy ending considering the alternative.

And it’s THAT alternative that has the internet up in arms. Apparently the recent release of the DVD/BluRay includes an alternate ending that isn’t a crowd pleaser.

During an interview with Buzzfeed, Jordan Peele describes the alternate ending …

“There is an alternate ending in which the cops actually come at the end. He gets locked up and taken away for slaughtering an entire family of white people and you know he’s never getting out, if he doesn’t get shot there on the spot.”

Jordan goes on to explain that he felt that the movie needed a more positive ending, especially with the amount of young black men being murdered in this country by police officers.

“It was very clear that the ending needed to transform into something that gives us a hero, that gives us an escape, gives us a positive feeling when we leave this movie. […] There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the audience go crazy when Rod shows up.”

 

The tweets speak for themselves and it seems like Peele made the right choice, but we’re intrigued by the creative process.

Michelle Williams revealed to the world on Wednesday that she was once suicidal.

During an appearances on CBS’s The Talk, the singer admitted that she considered taking her own life during the height of the group’s success. “I’m in one of the top-selling female groups of all time, suffering with depression,” Williams said. 

According to the pop star, she struggled with depression from age 13, but it wasn’t until her 30’s that she came to terms with it. “I think at the age of 25, had I had a name to what I was feeling at the time, I would have disclosed that ‘I’ve been suffering from depression.'”

She continued, “When I disclosed it to our manager [Beyonce’s dad, Mathew Knowles] at the time, bless his heart, he was like, ‘You all just signed a multimillion-dollar deal. You’re about to go on tour. What do you have to be depressed about?'”

Williams then confessed that the depression, which she first chalked up to being tired, got “to the point where I was suicidal… and wanted out.”

Following the singer’s public confession, she took to Twitter to thank fans and the talk show for their support. “Thank you @TheTalkCBS for being a safe place to talk about #depression #mentalhealthawareness!!” she wrote. “Don’t be afraid to reach out for help!”
