One of the most buzz-making things in the past few weeks has been Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp starrer The Idol, which marks pop sensation The Weeknd’s acting debut. The show has been making buzz for its Cannes Premiere, the standing ovation, and, top of all, all that buzz around the intimate scenes that are not just wild but insane. But while the grass looked greener in Cannes, it was certainly not with the world premiere, as the majority of the audience has already shunned the show and are trolling it.

For the unversed, The Idol, created by the Sam Levinson of Euphoria fame, features Tesfaye (The Weeknd) and Lily-Rose in the leading parts. With Depp in the center, it is about a famous pop star going through a breakdown after her mother’s death. She meets a guy named Abel (played by Tesfaye), a cult leader who takes over her life.

What is going on with you #MAX ? Asking for all of us.”

Another calling out the misrepresentation of women on The Idol wrote, “Please stop allowing a bunch of male writers to circle jerk on young actresses and pretend they’re creating art. This male gaze bullshit masquerading as some fresh take on the abuse of women is abuse in itself.”
