      meh for me it's fine The concept of autism is supposed to encompass a series of disorders that affect a person's communication skills, socialization, and empathy. Autism has a pathologically withdrawn personality Autism spectrum disorder is a disease related to brain development that affects the way a person perceives and socializes with other people, causing problems in interaction social and communication.( taken from google because i'm not doctor ewe) You just have to be respectful and inform yourself when making the character because it is a complicated situation in itself but by God it is a movie that can make us cry with the story and we better enjoy what comes Let's just enjoy the message and if you don't want to see it then don't do it and stop throwing hate at something that hasn't even come out UwU

      To everyone: Maddie wasn't forced to play this role. There's no "contract." Stop coming up with rumors and blindly thinking they're true.

      What bothers me greatly is the fact that in the beginning when concerns were brought up, SIA ignored them. When they grew and became more vocal, she dug her heels in and became aggressive in her Tweets. Now those Tweets have been removed, the original trailer has been removed and replaced with this one, making it difficult for anyone new to review what originally transpired and judge for themselves. Not to mention a few of the newer (not all) positive comments seem very generic and robotic, like they've been bought; you can do something similar on Instagram, where you buy "followers" that will like and leave generic comments. I really feel SIA has been handling this situation poorly, and it makes me upset and exhausted. There will be of course people who can watch it and that's fine. The issue is many cannot, and are upset by that for very legitimate reasons, and they are being ignored, spoken over and yelled at for it. How is this supposed to be a good thing for us autistics when, yet again, the conversation is about us, but not with us? Again, Forbes had made a balanced article the explains some of the issues. Please give it a read. www.forbes.com/sites/allisonnorlian/2020/11/24/sias-trailer-for-music-struck-a-nerve-with-the-disabled-community-her-tweets-only-made-things-worse/?sh=4e690f495ad9

      Pixar's Loop was voiced by a partially verbal autistic by the name of Madison Bandy. Writer and director of the film, Erica Milsom, was actively told not to look for someone autistic to pay the role, because they were under the impression that it would be too challenging to work with them. Milsom stuck with it and found Bandy, and worked with her. www.indiewire.com/2020/08/loop-pixar-short-first-non-verbal-character-1234582420/ www.forbes.com/sites/kristenlopez/2020/01/10/why-pixars-first-non-verbal-character-in-the-short-loop-was-a-game-changer/?sh=1c256499284c

      As a person with autism myself, as well as epilepsy, the bright colors and loud music were too much. Many on the autistic spectrum have something called Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes everyday stimuli overwhelming. Also the fact that Sia handled things horribly online didn’t help either... it just made her seem closed minded and immature. All people were doing was pointing out the flaws and issues the film had. And all she did was get pissed at everyone who dared to criticize it. To be honest, I’m not even angry over the fact that Maddie got casted. That’s quite common. But it would’ve been nice to have an actual autistic person act there part. That way, they’d have some experience on what having autism is really like. However, I am angry that I have to keep repeating myself to others. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried explaining this to someone and their response was either “I don’t care” or “If you don’t like it then don’t watch”. The fact that Sia replaced that autistic girl instead of giving her accommodations to make the set and experience more comfortable for her, is just wrong. Instead, Sia just casted her star Maddie. And that to me just doesn’t sit right... Maddie was FUCKING crying to Sia! Begging not to be in the film, due to the fear of being made fun of and getting backlash from this. But Sia pushed her forward anyway, saying it was fine. Shows how much she cares... I know not every autistic person is the same as me, but please try to understand where we’re coming from. We aren’t hating on this film for no reason. We’re trying to explain why it makes us so uncomfortable. If Sia truly plans on releasing a film representing our community, it should be comfortable for EVERYONE within that community. Not just the handful that like bright colors and loud music. I know not everyone can be pleased, but surely you understand what I’m trying to say. Right?

That is not how you should treat someone who is having a meltdown. Pinning them down like a criminal? If anything, that’s probably make the meltdown worse! I could understand a bear hug, because some autistic people need pressure to feel comfort. But not this... This film has got to be the worst portrayal of autism I’ve ever seen. Please don’t support this. It won’t do the autistic community any good... And for those of you saying that Sia did her best... No... Sia did not do her best. Three years of research just isn’t enough to understand the complexity of what she is trying to portray. And the fact she used Maddie instead of the original actress really says something. There could’ve been accommodations set for the girl to help her cope while being on set, but Sia decided that it was just to hard, so she used her usual star Maddie. She even admitted that it was nepotism. Sia doesn’t give a shit about the autistic community. All this is, is just to promote her new album while trying to gain some more money while doing so. Sickening...

      I love reading these comments, 90% of them are absolutely stupid. First of all, this movie looks incredible, I can’t wait to watch it. And I have a few things to say to the people that think it’s offensive: 1. Have you ever heard of acting? It’s this thing where you pretend to be something you aren’t, usually for movies or other artistic outlets. That’s what Maddie Ziegler is doing, she isn’t “mocking “ anyone in any way. The problem isn’t who has been cast, it’s that people get offended way to easily nowadays. Next I bet everyone will be complaining that Tom Holland isn’t actually Spiderman, and that those movies are offensive to people that have been bitten by spiders, because he hasn’t actually been bitten by one, and is mocking the way people with spider bites act. Saying that she is mocking certain people is being stereotypical in its own way, think about that. 2. You know what a movie is, right? Y’know the stories that you can watch? Things made for entertainment, usually with a moral or theme? That’s what this is, it’s not a documentary. It’s a story about love, and sticking together when you need each other, at least that’s what I got from watching the trailer. It’s also fictional, which means it’s not real. Why are you hating on one of the sweetest things that I’ve seen in a while? If you don’t like it, just leave, your opinion is not needed, because frankly it sucks. 3. Have you ever watched something and thought, ‘this is kinda boring’? Well when people make things that are meant to be entertaining, they usually add things that can capture your attention, like bright colors or catchy music. That’s what Sia has done, and honestly I’m living for it. I know not everyone can watch it, because some are sensitive to things like that, but that’s not a reason to hate the movie. I can’t play Minecraft, because the mechanics of the game make me extremely nauseous and dizzy. But that doesn’t mean that I need to tell everyone that it’s the worst game in existence and that the creators should be ashamed for even thinking of the idea. Just watch something else, simple fix. 4. To the people who will complain no matter what, can I just point out that the movie isn’t even out yet? All you’ve seen is the trailer, unless you’ve (illegally) watched it on the internet somewhere. And since you’ve only seen the trailer, that means you don’t know the full story, or what will happen. That also means that most of the things you are saying is theoretical. I’m basically saying you have guessed what will happen and don’t like your own thought. Pretty silly if you ask me. 5. Even if the movie is offensive to you, or if it is factually incorrect. Why should that bother you? It’s just a movie, a fictional one. My mom sent me the trailer, because she thought I’d like it. And so I watched it, not knowing what it was about, or what drama was happening on the internet about it. As I was watching, I saw Maddie and thought, ‘Ooh, she is autistic, right? She’s super cute. This movie looks adorable, I can’t wait to watch it!’. I never once thought that it was making fun, she actually had me 100% convinced she wasn’t acting the first time that I watched the trailer. Your comments are the things that first introduced me to this drama, which is nothing but a waste of time. 6. Want to know what I think the most offensive part it? It’s those words you all keep using, ableist, disabled, etc. This isn’t just about this movie, it’s about the world in general. People are saying that this movie is offensive because it wrongly portrays disabled people, but at the same time you are being offensive by saying that. You might be confused by what I just said, but think about it. The word disabled, it refers to someone that is un able to do something, but it’s also grouping people into sections, which is why you are offended in the first place. Imagine if words like black, white, disabled, stupid, tall, fat, gifted, weren’t invented. The world would be so much better, just with that. Because then we wouldn’t be categorized in any way. There wouldn’t be any possible way to differentiate between you and me, because those words wouldn’t be there as tools to criticize. I wish the world was like that, because it is the truth. Everyone claims that they think people are equal, but nobody backs that statement, because they continue to use words that group people together, which in turn splits others apart. So if you are going to criticize and claim that someone is something, just know that you are exactly the same. All I’m asking is that you watch the movie with an open opinion, or don’t watch it and keep your mouth shut. That’s what I’ll be doing, watching it and deciding in my own time if it is good or not, and if I decide that I do indeed hate it, I will be keeping that info to myself.

      Of all the autistic dancers and actors they could have used or even made accommodations for the alleged *one* autistic actress that was overstimulated/overworked they chose a neurotypical actress and she "learned how to act autistic" by watching exploitative videos of autistic children having meltdowns. I'm going to vomit.

    23. Sweet B. Girl

      Most people seem to me that they did not understand the context of the film, it is not necessary that the protagonist of the film has autism to represent the theme, for me it is symbolic and wants to give us something positive about autism (Stop being hate ) Of course, nobody said anything about the Netflix movie Wander which is almost exactly the same as this movie.

      Spectrum level 3. Hay varios niveles en el espectro del autismo o es que acaso quieren encasillar un personaje autista poniéndolo como un super genio? Dejen de romantizar las condiciones que en un espectro tan amplio como este hay varios niveles. La mayoría que se queja nisiquiera han tenido un familiar en un nivel alto.

    25. DhaOfficial

      Finally a film about music!

    26. Bepis

      maddie didn't even want to play the part at first and broke down in tears because she didn't want anyone to fine her acting offensive. Why not just cast someone how are on the spectrum and can acuratly portray music instead.

      1. Summer Rose

        As a person with autism myself, as well as epilepsy, the bright colors and loud music were too much. Many on the autistic spectrum have something called Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes everyday stimuli overwhelming. Also the fact that Sia handled things horribly online didn’t help either... it just made her seem closed minded and immature. All people were doing was pointing out the flaws and issues the film had. And all she did was get pissed at everyone who dared to criticize it. To be honest, I’m not even angry over the fact that Maddie got casted. That’s quite common. But it would’ve been nice to have an actual autistic person act there part. That way, they’d have some experience on what having autism is really like. However, I am angry that I have to keep repeating myself to others. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried explaining this to someone and their response was either “I don’t care” or “If you don’t like it then don’t watch”. The fact that Sia replaced that autistic girl instead of giving her accommodations to make the set and experience more comfortable for her, is just wrong. Instead, Sia just casted her star Maddie. And that to me just doesn’t sit right... Maddie was FUCKING crying to Sia! Begging not to be in the film, due to the fear of being made fun of and getting backlash from this. But Sia pushed her forward anyway, saying it was fine. Shows how much she cares... I know not every autistic person is the same as me, but please try to understand where we’re coming from.

    27. blue birdd

      As a person with autism, I dont feel like our community should judge a film before it's release, and we shouldn't blame them for not casting an autistic person either. an actor is supposed to act after all.

      1. ReasyRandom

        @Rebin_cgn She's going to make everyone vomit them back up.

      2. Rebin_cgn

        @blue birdd As you should. Dont judge a book by its cover. And look at the second trailer of the film, she released it a day ago. She made everyone eat up their words

      3. blue birdd

        @Summer Rose I wasnt really informed about the whole situation. thank you for clarifying the details, it actually helped alot in understanding the public outcry that this got. but I've seen this too many times in films were the trailer, controversy, or promotion affects how the public sees a film. Maybe I'm bieng illogical or optimistic but I'm still going to try watch it and then judge it from there.

    32. Judy Kraska

      To me the trailer looks like one of this American kitsch shit without any other concerns as make shallow people feeling more good, and the rest wants to vomit. I have seen this trailer without any back up information.

    33. Benjamin Christensen

      I am on the autism spectrum myself and this movie makes me smile 😁 and almost tear up with Joy because of how good it looks. I myself have known several people who are non verbal and autistic. And some of the facial expressions that maddie ziegler makes in the trailer are quite accurate to some of my friends. So it makes me happy and excited to see this. And yeah the term special abilities is not great but I kinda like it. It's unique and fun like everyone on the autism spectrum we are all special and unique in our own ways and what we can do is beyond amazing sometimes. This is the complete opposite of the movie wonder which made me upset and angry about how they represented a kid with special needs. Saying it's just a mask you can remove when this is something you live with for your life no matter how hard or difficult it's apart of you so be proud. And I think people need to back off of sia. She has done her very best and that's all we can ask. The song rainbow 🌈 she did in the my little pony movie is something that I use to inspire me every day and I hope the songs here will do the same for me and everyone else. So sia I say thank you very much for a happy and inspirational film that I myself will adore for many years to come

      1. Summer Rose

        @Benjamin Christensen No... Sia did not try her best. Three years of research just isn’t enough to understand the complexity of what she is trying to portray. And the fact she used Maddie instead of the original actress really says something. There could’ve been accommodations set for the girl to help her cope while being on set, but Sia decided that it was just to hard, so she used her usual star Maddie. She even admitted that it was nepotism. Sia doesn’t give a shit about the autistic community. All this is, is just to promote her new album while trying to gain some more money while doing so. Sickening...

      2. Benjamin Christensen

        @Summer Rose I do get your point and I do know about the epilepsy stuff because I have it as well. But mine is primary generalized eplilepsy. And stuff with flashing lights is hard at times but I have grown used to them. And yes it is sad how sia handled this but at least she tried her best. Maddie ziegler I can understand was probably sad and angry about being cast but I can tell that she's going to give her all

    36. Mr Clean

      Every Sia fan, go to google and search for the movie and then give a good rate, some people "in the spectrum" doesnt understand that: 1.- The autism that "music" is showing is a specific kind of autism (that Sia explained) and NO, she isnt generalizing anything 2.- That its an actor's job to portray someone else, you are not putting a serial killer to act as a serial killer in a movie 3.- That the movie isnt even out yet And they are giving a bad rate to a movie that isnt out yet, so please go and give a good rating to make things fair

    37. White Diamond

      I appreciate the intention here. There are a lot of pros and cons *Cons:* (Mostly matches what others have said) ♤Could cause sensory overload while watching ♡No captions ◇The autistic character is not autistic, and while it would probably be a strain to find an autistic actor that suits the narrative they're going for, the fact that she's only imitating neurodivergent people is it bit obvious to people who have experience with autistic people (her actions like raising her hands to stim just aren't spontaneous or natural enough) ♧I've never seen or heard of an autistic person using their talker to communicate emotions, only to show what they'd like or want or need (if you have conflicting experience please tell me), I've just never seen the need to do so with emotions, I've always found that non-verbal people especially are the easiest people to read in the world *Pros* ○ How her talker works is very accurate ● Her acting is accurate enough to give allistic people who don't know any autistic or non-verbal people a general sense of how they act □ They're giving her a special interest by the looks of thing, I hope they explain that in the movie ■ She's not being shown as a misunderstood genius for no reason other than being autistic, a stereotype that needs to be completely avoided ▪ Music's actress is clearly working hard with this, it honestly strikes me as a role she's playing with love ☆☆☆☆☆☆LESLIE ODOM JR☆☆☆☆☆☆ I think that we need to accept that things like this are more about teaching unknowledgable allistic people about autism than about giving autistic people something to relate to, and that in this day and age, glorification of neurodivergence and topics like it are the best way to spread a positive opinion of it, as opposed up straight up facts. The way I'm thinking of it it that after this movie comes out, there will be at least one person that will see a non-verbal person vocalising or stimming and they'll think of this movie, with all its cheer and positive messages, and instead of frowning or giving out, they'll smile.😊

      1. White Diamond

        My opinion of Sia just went from neutral to _extreme_ minus. By the way, I'm autistic and my brother's non-verbal. I feel like they got information from valid sources but then mashed the information together and mixed it up which resulted in stuff like them retraining her to calm her down. I'm going by personal experience here. We do sometimes have to hold onto my brother to stop him from hitting himself or us, but straddling him or holding him to the ground would definitely make him worse. And they may also be going of off how pressure can be comforting to some autistic people, my brother and I both love lying under heavy duvets and strong hugs. I think what happened was that they took these too different methods used in two different situations and mashed them up. Of course they might be going by some autistic person they "studied" who this actually does help, but even if that's true it's a big mistake to portray that on screen, some people will probably get the impression that that's the universal way of calming autistic people down. And the fact that they consulted Autism Speaks is pretty worrying.

      This is downright offensive why was this ever made? Its a gross misinterpretation of autistic people that pushes really offensive ableist stereotypes 😡

    56. Chelsea Peterson

      To those who are complaining that the autistic character isn’t played by an autistic person, you really think that she hasn’t considered that ?? She literally had autistic friends and had autistic advisors helping her with the film to make it more realistic. She even went as far as do a trial with an autistic person, and when she asked about how they felt about it, they told her they weren’t comfortable being in the movie, honestly, you people need to see it from an autistic person’s perspective, and see it from the cast member’s perspective. You say autistic people should’ve had the role of music, but what if she actually went through with casting an autistic person for her movie, next thing you know, critics will accuse her of taking advantage of autistic people, honestly, give the woman a break, watch the damn movie, and understand other possible and realistic reasons to her casting decisions instead of trying to bit her head off. Sia, you’re doing great, and ignore the haters, the movie is great.

      ummm

    58. Jason Dimmock

      I cringe the moment I saw the music video together but the song is good. Then I found out that one of the main characters in the movie had autism like me. I’m not saying that it offends me it’s just cringe

    59. Diego Vargas

      Wait, Is sia showing her face?

    60. Carlos D. Bailón

      Honestly, I don't understand the hate. Everyone has a different perspective from the world, and this movie is about Sia perspective of the world of autism, I'm not autistic so I don't really know how it is, but I like to think that it's better than a community who shades people who don't have the "spectrum", Sia is doing anything to make it the better she can. Also the fact that you want a "reallistic" movie, there a lot of them, this is an optimist and literally fantastic pov. And there's nothing wrong with that.

      1. Carlos D. Bailón

        ​@Summer Rose Sorry, I didn't mean to offend anyone, like I said, I don't know how it is, nobody can know better than yourselves, I only want to get a little of respect in this film by someone I admire, and if do you feel like you won't like it, it's fine, I don't say it in a mean way, you can watch something that can go with your preferences or circumstances, nobody is obliged to watch it. However, if you really can and want to watch it and get an opinion of the film instead of the trailer, it will be welcome, it's true, Sia is a bit immature, but that's how she is, that's her way to be, not to hurt someone, but to be true to herself and her work. I can't say everyone really cares, but I can say that I care... to understand, to get different perspectives of something I don't know. Yeah, this is my first approach with the autistic community cuz I have never had the chance to met someone in it or have the need to know, but now I know it's everywhere, and it's something we all need to know. Calm down and let it be, if it's on the right way, it will grow, and if it's not, well, let's keep on moving, it will be there as a try. The film it's done, it will come in February, it is what it is. Now is on Sia's hands. Also, we all are in a hard moment, so let's not make it more difficult and let's try to get along and understand to eachother.

      2. Summer Rose

        As a person with autism myself, as well as epilepsy, the bright colors and loud music were too much. Many on the autistic spectrum have something called Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes everyday stimuli overwhelming. Also the fact that Sia handled things horribly online didn’t help either... it just made her seem closed minded and immature. All people were doing was pointing out the flaws and issues the film had. And all she did was get pissed at everyone who dared to criticize it. To be honest, I’m not even angry over the fact that Maddie got casted. That’s quite common. But it would’ve been nice to have an actual autistic person act there part. That way, they’d have some experience on what having autism is really like. However, I am angry that I have to keep repeating myself to others. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried explaining this to someone and their response was either “I don’t care” or “If you don’t like it then don’t watch”. The fact that Sia replaced that autistic girl instead of giving her accommodations to make the set and experience more comfortable for her, is just wrong. Instead, Sia just casted her star Maddie. And that to me just doesn’t sit right... Maddie was FUCKING crying to Sia! Begging not to be in the film, due to the fear of being made fun of and getting backlash from this. But Sia pushed her forward anyway, saying it was fine. Shows how much she cares... I know not every autistic person is the same as me, but please try to understand where we’re coming from.

    70. Felix Calino

      I’m sure Sia didn’t mean anything bad. I see this like we all have our own worlds in ourselves. And even we’re not happy in this world, we still can be happy in our own one.

      1. Felix Calino

        @Summer Rose Sia’s biggest mistake was mentioning an autism at all in the movie. I’m sure she originally wanted to shot a movie inspired by Maddie, may be show the difficult part of her life, her emotional condition when she was depressed to die, alcohol and drug addicted. Also Maddie is like her interpretation on screen. I’m sure she decided to make this character an autistic to give this character more storyline and drama and this is Sia’s mistake.

    73. I Strange

      Di Caprio's performance in "What's eating Gilbert Grape" is still praised , but he has not any handicap . Maddie's acting might not reach Leonardo's level , but in my opinion it's realistic enough . If you think autistic people don't act like that , maybe you have only seen people with a mild autistic spectrum . Just 'cause you are not like that , or the people you know are not like that , it doesn't mean the movie can't portray stronger form of autism .

      1. I Strange

        @Summer Rose I have to admit i've been a little bit superficial. I didn't know those " behind the scenes " about the movie . The way you expressed your reasons made me understand better the situation .

      I have autism and how the movie was made/the stereotypic and disrespectful mindset is so degrading!!!

      1. Summer Rose

        As another autistic person, I agree.

    75. Roy Godiksen

      This is going to get a lot of weak minded assholes to clinch up in triggered outrage. But that happens no matter what you do, say, don't say or don't do, so i say go for it! 💖💖👏🏼👏🏼

      1. Roy Godiksen

        @Summer Rose I'm not angry. I don't actually have much of an emotional specter due to my form of autism. Just tired of people putting their souls into every little detail of everything. It's a film. It's not suppose to do any good. It's art and entertainment. And, to experience the world through other peoples eyes is actually good for people. There are people who live life experiencing the world as a musical. Most of those cases are a result of brain injury from major trauma like car crashes or brutal assaults. Just have an open mind and enjoy what you like. Don't waste time on what you don't like.

      2. Summer Rose

        @Roy Godiksen I was only trying to explain why this movie would be uncomfortable and not good representation. With my own experience and thoughts. I wasn’t trying lecture you. Please don’t support this film. It won’t do any good. And I’m sorry if I made you angry. That wasn’t my intention. I hope you have a nice day.

      3. Roy Godiksen

        @Summer Rose Yeah, I AM autistic with 24/7 anxiety and panic attacks. I live in a staffed home for people with mental disorders who need 24/7 care. You can't lecture me on anything on this topic. And if you can't watch a movie without getting triggered, you're life is almost as fucked up as mine.

      4. Summer Rose

        As a person with autism myself, as well as epilepsy, the bright colors and loud music were too much. Many on the autistic spectrum have something called Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes everyday stimuli overwhelming. Also the fact that Sia handled things horribly online didn’t help either... it just made her seem closed minded and immature. All people were doing was pointing out the flaws and issues the film had. And all she did was get pissed at everyone who dared to criticize it. To be honest, I’m not even angry over the fact that Maddie got casted. That’s quite common. But it would’ve been nice to have an actual autistic person act there part. That way, they’d have some experience on what having autism is really like. However, I am angry that I have to keep repeating myself to others. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried explaining this to someone and their response was either “I don’t care” or “If you don’t like it then don’t watch”. The fact that Sia replaced that autistic girl instead of giving her accommodations to make the set and experience more comfortable for her, is just wrong. Instead, Sia just casted her star Maddie. And that to me just doesn’t sit right... Maddie was FUCKING crying to Sia! Begging not to be in the film, due to the fear of being made fun of and getting backlash from this. But Sia pushed her forward anyway, saying it was fine. Shows how much she cares... I know not every autistic person is the same as me, but please try to understand where we’re coming from. We aren’t hating on this film for no reason. We’re trying to explain why it makes us so uncomfortable. If Sia truly plans on releasing a film representing our community, it should be comfortable for EVERYONE within that community. Not just the handful that like bright colors and loud music. I know not everyone can be pleased, but surely you understand what I’m trying to say. Right?

      Nice goooooiiid

    77. grace x

      my mum works with kids with special needs and i have met them before, i feel like it's a bit insulting in a way and yeah they do have those mannerisms but the movie is just way too much especially with the bright colours and music Edit: and as well, if you're gonna make a movie like this, i would at least tone the colours down a bit, not have really loud music and actually cast somebody who is austisic instead of "acting autistic"

    78. blushyfairy

      sia ilysm but this.. well I don't love this idea of yours.

    79. Julie Musikka

      I love it! And I'm an autist. I'm so happy that Sia represent us in such a loving way. That movie I can tell is full of love for life. I think she really does something for this sake

      Can u guys at least watch it before judging it? Not saying this movie is good or bad but like you have watched one minute of it. You guys are trying to cancel a movie you haven't seen. This happened to insatiable and it ended up being an amazing show.

      1. Summer Rose

        I don’t have to watch a film to judge it based on the trailer. And so far all I see is sensory overload...

    81. water pop tarts

      it's the ableism for me

      1. Rebin_cgn

        @Summer Rose No one is hating on what you do. The issue is that you are basically judging a book by its cover. No one is denying autism and its spectrum. We all know that not everyone is behaving as its being portrayed here. But as I just mentioned, its a spectrum with a huge variaty of expression. I appreciate you for spreading awareness, feel free to judge on how wrong this movie is once its out. Have a nice day aswell!

      2. Summer Rose

        @Rebin_cgn Whatever you say. I’ve stopped commenting that since everyone seems to hate it so much. And despite what you may think, I am actually trying to be educated here, not prejudice. I even left links to check out. Which I’m sure you didn’t, but that’s okay. Have a nice day!

      3. Rebin_cgn

        @Summer Rose Im not gonna let you decide for me, I have the right to have my own opinion. And my opinion, additional to my objective point of view is: Im gonna judge ONCE the movie is out. Right now, the only thing I see here is your prejudice, no educational argument at all.

      4. Summer Rose

        @Rebin_cgn I’m sorry. But I have to keep EXPLAINING why this movie is such an issue. And you people just don’t get. Or just don’t care to. I’ll copy and paste as many times as I need to in order to educate others. Because this film is doing a poor job...

      5. Rebin_cgn

        @Summer Rose Stop copy pasting your comment, dont you have anything else to do than constantly checking for new comments and replying with the same answer over and over again? Im not uneducated, and I get your point of view. Doesnt mean that im immediately gonna judge Sia for a simple trailer. This movie is based off of a real autistic human being, whos live is as meaningful as yours. He behaves exactly like how Maddie is portraying it. You are being ignorant by putting your own feelings over theirs. You might have epilepsy, but the world doesnt revovle around you only. Many autistic people liked the beautiful colors.

    82. Laura Metcalfe

      It’s funny because if it was a more popular actor like Dakota Fanning, Tom Hanks or Leonardo DiCaprio (who have all betrayed a character with autism in a movie) everyone would be okay with that. But because it’s Maddie Ziegler who portrays this character with autism everyone is hating on her (people dislike her in general though and I still don’t understand why) Half of you haven’t even seen the movie yet.

    83. Linda_Is_The_True_Snitch

      I have such a problem with autism being such a buzz word nowadays. And as some with autism, i have many problems with this. 1: Why do people act like autistic people are soooo ‘special’ in movies and tv shows but act like pieces of shit in real life and act like we’re lesser humans. 2: We are normal people. so stop making us feel different where most of us wanna fit in 3: Your forcing a lot of people to think that this is how ALL autistic people are like. It’s called a spectrum for a reason, it’s just simply black or white. so making people think that we are all obsessed with music or that we all struggle to talk is just borderline stupid. 4:why would you make the lead actor (the person playing the autistic girl) someone who isn’t autistic, or is a sibling/relatives of someone who has it, or works in a job where you would interact in autistic people. This pretty much cements the fact that this is a autism film just to get ticket sales. This film is awful and very disrespectful to me. I want people to understand that this is an inaccurate portrayal of an autistic person and that there are better films out there. so watch those. If you have any questions please ask and i’m happy to respond

      Sia, I believe your heart is in the right place, and you are a wonderful and beautiful human being. I can't wait until this film is actually released so I can watch it and THEN give you my opinion. I've been a huge fan of yours for about 15 years now. You are an inspiration, and I appreciate you for sharing yourself with the world 💜

      1. JustJakki

        @Summer Rose sadly, the reason why comments like yours aren't truly heard, is because where there is one that actually makes sense and shares where they got their info, there are at least 100+ more that are jumping on the bandwagon because they just want something to be angry about. Usually those types of comments are completely uninformed, super loud and ignorant, and end up drowning out the voices that are actually saying something important! I completely understand and respect your point of view, and am really grateful that you took the time to respond in such an organized and informative manner. 💜

The fact that Sia replaced that autistic girl instead of giving her accommodations to make the set and experience more comfortable for her, is just wrong. Instead, Sia just casted her star Maddie. And that to me just doesn’t sit right... Maddie was FUCKING crying to Sia! Begging not to be in the film, due to the fear of being made fun of and getting backlash from this. But Sia pushed her forward anyway, saying it was fine. Shows how much she cares... I know not every autistic person is the same as me, but please try to understand where we’re coming from.

      She actualy worked hard on this and made a film for her fans because they wanted her to and now all you guy do in return is hate on her the only disappointment here is ur disgusting comments

      1. Summer Rose

        @sabrina w Thank you! Finally someone understands!

      2. sabrina w

        The fact that most of the people criticizing the trailer are people with autism says a lot. They clearly do not feel represented in this portrayal and find it offensive

      Why does every Body hate on it saying there awtistic when most prob aren’t and it’s about raising awerness and if u saw her interview with the news she said that she got a lot hate commentes saying she was just being stereo tipcle and she hates that she’s making people think that so she’s trying her best to make this (.sorry I’m bad at spelling.) also if u have nothing nice to say don’t say anything at all.

      1. I like the rain

        @Summer Rose sorry about how the film impacted you, those are some important links and i'm sure that some people looked into it

      2. Summer Rose

        @I like the rain Not anymore. Since no one gives a damn about what I have to say. I was only trying to speak from my own experience and why I think this film is going to be quite uncomfortable for some autistic people. I even left links too. Which I’m sure no one even looked into.

        @Summer Rose damn you're just replying the same thing in every comment about this?

        because the critisim needs to be heard. on top of that, she worked with autism speaks, a "charity" that just hurts people with autism

    97. Aidan Larson

      They’re actors. THEY PRETEND TO BE SOMEONE THEY ARE NOT. 🤦🏼 Sia’s choice is 100% appropriate.

      1. Summer Rose

        @Aidan Larson Wow... says a lot about our society.

      2. Aidan Larson

        Honestly, no. I did not look at the links. I already have a relative who is autistic and understand it. Yes, I did connect to you, but that doesn’t mean I have to agree with you. Also, I love and care about Sia more than you, so peace. ✌🏼

      3. Summer Rose

        @Aidan Larson Really? You “connect” with me? Then why are you supporting a HORRIBLE film for autistic people. Many have Sensory Processing Disorder. Like I mentioned in my comment. And Sia’s response to all the criticism was horrible. Just because she’s famous, does not mean she’s immune to this criticism. And no, this isn’t “cancel culture” either. I’m not trying to cancel anyone. I’m trying to share my experiences as an autistic person and explaining why this film isn’t good for our community. Did you even look into the links I left in my comment at all?

      4. Aidan Larson

        Oh, man. I’m so sorry. I hear you. 🥺 However, I still stand with Sia. This is cancel culture. They want to judge her as more than human, and tell her what she is and isn’t doing, all the while being bigots about it. It’s just too far. If these people were actually the same level of autism that Maddie portrays in the film, they would not be attacking people online. Also, Sia payed for the movie, so she should be able to do what she deems fit. Anyway, beside all of this, I really do connect to you. ❤️ Best to you.
