Already more than 50,000 people have signed a petition for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to withdraw the two Golden Globe nominations it awarded to the film “Music”, directed by Australian singer Sia.

Not only that. They also ask that the platforms that show the film stop doing it.

The reason they allege is that they consider that the way in which the film presents its autistic protagonist is “offensive” and contributes to perpetuating “harmful stereotypes” about people with this condition.

In addition, they criticize that the dancer Maddie Ziegler has been chosen to play a young woman with autism, instead of an actress who is part of the autism spectrum, and that the film shows scenes in which the protagonist is immobilized by force.
