If you’ve ever watched Netflix’s Chewing Gum you would see a strong similarity it has compared to Issa Rae’s Insecure. The star of Chewing Gum; Michaela Coel recently caught up with FADER magazine and shared she agreed that her project was similar to Rae’s and even Jordan Peele’s Get Out. After praising Rae; Michaela then went to express how the similarities mostly come from them both being black women.
FADER: Do you see Insecure and Chewing Gum related in any specific way?
Absolutely. I think by virtue of the fact that we are both black and female, [they are] going to have some threads of similarity, even though we’re across the pond from each other. The same is true for Donald Glover’s Atlanta. Even Get Out the movie — when you asked me about the [Chewing Gum] episode with the [racist] guy. I thought, There’s definitely traces of that in Get Out.
