Sia excludes Twitter amid controversy over her film ‘Music’

Singer and director Sia apparently deleted her Twitter amid criticism of her new film ‘Music’. According to E! News, ‘Music’, which received two Golden Globe nominations on Wednesday, has faced adverse reactions to its casting of American actor-dancer Maddie Ziegler as a teenager on the autism spectrum.

The film, which also stars Leslie Odom Jr., was criticized mainly after Sia said on Twitter that she was unable to find an actor with autism who could play Maddie’s character called Music. The film also received intense criticism after it was revealed that a scene in the film depicts Maddie’s character being contained during an episode, something that people in the autism community have pointed out can be dangerous for the person being contained and for those doing it. containment.

Sia rejected criticism surrounding the cast of Maddie, with whom she has worked several times in her music videos. However, on Thursday, Sia turned to social media to claim that she was now “listening” to those who questioned that controversial scene. Sia apologized and explained that she will edit the film’s content and add a statement at the beginning of the film. “I’m sorry,” she tweeted.

However, right after tweeting about the disclaimer added to the film, Sia’s Twitter identifier was disabled. Although she apparently deleted her Twitter, Sia’s Instagram is still active. On Wednesday, she shared a ‘Music’ poster in honor of the Golden Globe nomination, writing the caption: “This film is a love letter to everyone who ever felt they had no voice. How incredible and exciting and a incredible experience. Congratulations to all the cast and crew, and thanks to Hollywood Foreign Press. What an honor! “
