But it is an important conversation to have, not just about this movie, but as a whole about representation.” She continued, “For me when I hear that there’s anybody that feels left out I feel terrible. It’s an ongoing and important dialogue to be had, about neurotypical actors portraying neurodivergent characters. It is an important one to have with people with experts and who know how to engage in the conversation. I encourage it, truly. I think that it’s important to say that we are listening.” Cardi B Addresses Backlash ‘WAP’ Received on Its Release.
‘Music’, co-written by musician Sia, portrays Hudson playing a recently sober drug dealer who finds herself charged with taking care of her younger sister, a special-needs teen named Music played by actor Maddie Ziegler. As per Fox News, the movie, which earned two Golden Globe nominations, came under fire for its portrayal of autistic people as well as the decision to cast neurotypical Ziegler as someone on the autism spectrum.
The movie also received intense criticism after it was revealed that a scene in the film depicts Maddie’s character being restrained during an episode, something that people in the autism community pointed out can be dangerous for both the person being restrained and the one doing the restraining.
‘Music’ had hit the big screens on February 12, this year.

Kate Middleton and Prince William are hearing how the COVID-19 vaccine is helping high-risk individuals resume their normal lives.
On Tuesday, the royal couple spoke with two people with longterm health conditions on a special video call. Fiona Doyle, who has asthma, and Shivali Modha, who has type 2 diabetes, have been isolating with their families throughout the past year and are now eligible to receive the coronavirus vaccine.
Doyle and Modha shared their experiences during the pandemic with Kate and William, who have been isolating for much of the year with their three children at their country home in Norfolk, Amner Hall.
"I have always been somebody who truly believes in vaccines, and I truly believe in science and medicine," Doyle told the couple. "I think that it's the best way to look ahead to have a much brighter future and go back to normality. I really hope that as many people as possible, when they get called up for it, take it… It's nice to know mentally that you have that layer of protection."© Kensington Palace Kate Middleton and Prince William

"I think it's important that we now move forward and I'm hopeful that more and more people do realize how important it is that they get their vaccination. And how lucky we are that we're even able to access it," Modha said. "Just like this condition, this virus, the idea of this vaccination is new. But the more people that get it you realize that actually it is helpful."
