Quinn Shephard’s second movie, “Not Okay,” follows Danni Sanders through an online ruse that ends with Danni “canceled” by the world.

“I was writing this at a time where I was very aware of what was going on with gun violence in our country, and it’s even more relevant now."

Shephard continued, “Having a platform as a young, white woman, it is really important to talk about the privilege and microaggressions that many white women perpetuate on the internet. And so Danni felt like a great way to do like, ‘What is the Zillennial Karen?’”

Quinn also chats about creating a character for her fiance Nadia Alexander, sending Dylan O’Brien thirst traps, and the societal issues the movie addresses.
