Good for her. Twitter users need to stop acting entitled to everything. Im gay I don’t care if a gay man plays a gay man as long as they are quality and not offensive.

gen zumba toddlers are so trash The whole point of acting is trying to be an another person How dumb can you be if you ask that? we need to cast real aliens? we need to cast real serial killer?

Sia clapped back at an autistic actor who was willing to act in Sia's new film, but was ultimately not included. Sia has a new film and album on the way, both titled Music. It stars Kate Hudson,

I love Sia but I'm somewhere in the middle because I dont know if they auditioned autistic people or not

If yes, then I'm all the way with Sia and he's just as bad as she says

If no, I don't know maybe they should give an inside perspective of the disabled too

But I love her

Yikes. I get that people are quick to pounce on any perceived slight to pc culture but this was not a very diplomatic way of handling this. Even if they legit are a bad actor, it's generally a bad move to respond to criticism with a counter attack; She should have just been transparent about the issue, or even just ignored it.

I know that obviously it’s not the first time something like this has happened.

 However I don’t think that this user was at all disrespectful? They asked really valid questions. I like Sia a lot, and have before this diamonds and this is acting fame came along. I loved her stuff with Zero 7, huge fan........

but really LOL? You’re making a film about people with autism and cannot answer whether autistic people will be featured or if any of the proceeds will go towards an organization to assist people with autism? 
why are you being a b**tcch, Sia? LOL. don’t tell a story about autistic people if you’re just doing it for the aesthetic. It is dumb of her and honestly, I couldn’t care less about her loyalty to the dance mom girl. She’s an adult and can get her own roles now lol

Actors are just doing that, ACTING. I don't think anyone should feel the pressure to include ANYONE in their creative output unless they wanted to. Otherwise should you be forced to hire a crappy actor if that was the case, if this person was the only one trying out for a role? I don't think so. Was Sia blunt about it? Yes. Had the other person probably written several stuff before Sia replied: Probably.

Good for her. Being autistic doesn't mean that you get everything you want; if the actor in question wasn't chosen to be part of the movie, then clearly their acting wasn't very good. Sia suggesting this doesn't seem like an "ableist" thing to me; she's simply not taking any **** from an entitled person.

Exactly! Sia might have been too rash and blunt, but everyone is so entitled these days. :idkney_britney_glory_carpool_karaoke_unsure_idk_nervous:

Being Autistic myself i would have loved for an Autistic actor to be apart of this, to give insight on what its really like. but hopefully sia does this justice

Have you watched the trailer? I don't think it represents a lot of autistic people.

this looks like a lock for Razzies. There’s a reason why this film was made years ago and only released now - because it’s bad. I don’t know about Maddie’s acting in other films, but her performance looks like a parody.

Autistic people aren’t entitled to be given a job, but how can anyone watch this trailer and still think she has done even research to make a movie about it?
