Sia’s ‘Music’ Movie Asked to be Cancelled by Autism Rights Activists

Autism rights activists are now asking Sia to cancel the release of her “Music” movie.

In response to a trailer released on Nov. 19, starring Maddie Ziegler as a nonverbal autistic teen, activists, people on the autism spectrum and their loved ones have continued to speak out on the film’s display of offensive stereotypes and visual effects.

On Friday, an online petition was launched to cancel the film’s premiere, a campaign spearheaded by Hannah Marshall, who identifies as an autistic woman from North Carolina. Over 500 people have signed the petition, as of Tuesday afternoon.

“As an autistic individual, I am asking that this film is canceled,” Marshall wrote on the fundraising page. “It is extremely offensive to myself and other autistic individuals. Sia has shown no remorse for her inaccurate and hurtful betrayal of the community.”

20 Years Ago, Hollywood’s Top Comic Broke Box Office Records As Christmas’s Biggest Movie Star

As for Howard, whose not-great Hillbilly Elegy debuts on Netflix
NFLX
today, he has made so many movies of all size and scope that he’s bound to miss now and then. But The Grinch is also one of Carrey and Howard’s biggest domestic

Filmmaker Vikram Gandhi Talks Tekashi6ix9ine Movie On Tom Needham's SOUNDS OF FILM

69: THE SAGA OF DANNY HERNANDEZ director, Vikram Gandhi, and BELLY OF THE BEAST director, Erika Cohn, are Tom Needham’s special guests this Thursday on THE SOUNDS OF FILM.

Part investigative documentary, part real-life gangster movie, 69: THE SAGA OF DANNY HERNANDEZ unpacks the life of polarizing rap sensation and internet troll Tekashi69. One of the most controversial figures in contemporary pop culture, 69 repeatedly broke the internet with his sensationalist music videos and social media beefs before infamously testifying against Brooklyn gang the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods in a landmark trial. Director Vikram Gandhi (KUMARÉ, BARRY) gets up close and personal with the neighborhood locals who knew 69 when he was still just Danny Hernandez-before the hard-core persona and the face tattoos-to chronicle his meteoric rise and fall from fame and probe the harsh extremes of addiction to fame in the digital era. 69: THE SAGA OF DANNY HERNANDEZ
