Sia's new movie slammed for not hiring autistic actor

Music Teaser Kate Hudson Leads Sia's Directorial Debut Film

Sia shares 'Hey Boy' from 'Music' soundtrack

Another social media user wrote: "Several autistic actors, myself included".

"The news you've been waiting for!"

Music stars Kate Hudson (Almost Famous), Maddie Ziegler (The Book of Henry, West Side Story) and Leslie Odom Jr.

Sia, however, felt differently about her casting approach. Irish actress Bronagh Waugh asked. But they're also incredibly concerned with how the film depicts an autistic character, which appears to infantize and fetishize autism. "People with disabilities are not broken and don't need fixing".

Sia was antagonistic when responding to criticism from people within the disabled community.

Sia defended herself by saying she "made the executive decision that we would do our best to lovingly represent the community".

But the singer's response seemed to only spark more upset as people further questioned why it would be "cruel" to hire a disabled actor. She also stated that she performed three years of research for the movie and had autistic people advising her throughout production.

According to Variety, the "Chandelier" hitmaker cast her frequent collaborator, Maddie Ziegler, as a character who is "non-verbal and she has a little echolalia who can repeat what you say to her, but she doesn't generate her own language". F-kity f-k why don't you watch my film before you judge it?

"I actually tried working with a handsome young girl non verbal on the spectrum and she found it unpleasant and stressful".

The album announcement is heralded by new single "Hey Boy" written by Sia, Jesse Shatkin and KAMILLE - and produced by Jesse Shatkin.

Reps for Sia didn't immediately return Page Six's request for comment.

"Every time a non-autistic person makes a project about us for art, it sets us back in numerous ways", she wrote.

Sara Gibbs, a British comedy writer with autism, a developmental condition that leads to anxiety in social situations, difficulty in communication, and atypical behaviour, explained why she was anxious about the film on the social media site.

"Autism speaks came on board long after the film was finished, four years in fact".

Sia's music is integral to the story of the film. She added that she brought Autism Speaks onto Music after it was made.
