It might become available on some streaming network as Netflix, HULU, or HBO MAX in the near future but as of now, there is no information available regarding its release on OTT.


The docufilm follows a dinner hosted by Regina Jackson as a Black woman and Saira Rao as an Indian-American who started a program in 2019 to help women in confronting the underlying racism against and overcoming white supremacy.


Rao shared an experience in which a Black Lyft driver asked her to put her hands up and avoid frustrating the police in case if cops stop them. Some guests were shocked while some find it normal and same goes with the reviews.

Many people are hating the Deconstructing Karen documentary because of its sharp views and sensitive discussion that is exposing white supremacy in America.

Even though, most of the white people have become good today, the movie still ignores them and focus only on the ones that are putting America down. This might be the reason behind those bad reviews but we should accept them as well and embrace the good ones.
