The net was set ablaze over the weekend following the airing of Lifetime‘s critically panned Aaliyah biopic.
A volcano of opinions populated social media after the airing of ‘Aaliyah: Princess Of R&B’, with the lava of anger still spilling over today.
Notable in her silence, though, was the project’s executive producer Wendy Williams.
The talk show maven turned media mogul had been promoting the movie in earnest and guaranteed that her enlisting (which took place in the advanced stage of the production process) would ensure that the story would be told “right”.
Needless to say, the masses have made clear that they disapprove.
Wisely choosing to address the matter on her show today (see: ratings), Williams defended the flick and cited its major ratings as the true indicator of its success.
See what she had to say below…
Given that it’s Wendy, it was kinda sorta inevitable that she’d have her game face on. That said, even she must know that the movie was a mucky mess?
In any case, what’s done is done. Hopefully, the huge interest will compel a major movie house to produce a big screen narrative that boasts better attention to detail.
