  8. If she wants to redeem this she needs to preface it with it being about/for her very specific friend who seems to also have mental impairment, and make it about her, not about Autism in general, because this does not represent autism at all. I am autistic and haven't been able to deal with Sia's music since she added a few extra syllables to 'chandelelier'.

  9. I think everyone should give the movie a chance to watch it when it is shown because it is illogical to judge it only through the trailer. In fact, Sia said that she gave an autistic girl an opportunity to play the lead role, but she saw that the girl was stressed and could not take the role As required, plus playing the starring role requires dancing, singing and acting. It is clear that the most appropriate option is maddie and it is natural to choose a non-autistic actor to play the role of an autistic person.It's like movie "What's eating gilbert grape" in which Leonardo DiCaprio was represented And there was no problem with that and the movie was great.Sia showed the film to about 100 children with autism to make sure that the film was comfortable and correct in terms of acting and everything else, and the reactions were very positive. In addition, she conducted research for four years on autism, and we must remember from the story of the film a specific case that Sia saw, and we should not judge that it is an insult or that maddie was not properly represented in just one minute. I'm sure Sia has good intentions and the movie is full of love and happiness. Please give it a chance❤

  10. Ah geeez. For everyone saying "this is cringey, I'm not like this"
    There is no one person, that is the same, on the spectrum. This may be a perfect representation of Sia's friend who she based the character on and you're saying it's cringey? Who's being offensive now?
    She's giving someone a voice who literally doesn't have one. I agree that we need to make way more films about autistic people and their different stories, personalities and behaviours. We will get there. This is just one story, one example. Let's see where it goes and continue telling more stories.
    I have ASD before anyone bites my head off

  11. There are autistic people who are undiagnosed and are probably suffering from depression or/and anxiety, and most of them are verbal, don't experience extreme sensory overload and rarely have meltdowns (if they experienced one once they will get called freaks or dramatic). They often got called stupid, lazy and are just told to be normal or just get over it. I'm one of these people.
    This movie is ableist since there are always representations in the media like this movie, always nonverbal and screams a lot for the smallest things. It just pisses me off seeing people stereotyping autistic people like that!!
    Also Sia supports autism $peaks which is an ableist hate group and she thinks she knows all about autism when she DOESN'T!!

  12. When did people forget that acting in movies is one of the most important things? Actors playing different characters, trying to show smt new, trying to be another person. We watch movies, they get awards – all because of this, for ACTING and TRANSFORMATION. If you take autistic humans for the autistic role… it would be a documentary movie, not a feature film. You want to see a gay as a gay character, you want to see an autist as an autistic character. You want to KILL THE WHOLE ESSENCE of acting. Okay, let's take a real rapist, real pedophile, etc. Let's take a real corpse from the morgue and using those in crash scenes. Let's take an actor and burn him for the role of fire survived. Let's do that, okay?
    Where were all of you when the canonic caucasian character turn black? When Peter Pan and Alice turn black brother and sister? When Tinkerer from Spider-Man turns to black young female? Why did you say nothing?
    So don't be a fool.

  13. I have a high function autistic child ( Ridley’s Crossing on YouTube) when “together” came out I related to that song with him not knowing what the film was about. After seeing the trailer I can’t wait to see the film!!! Why do people always look at the process and not the message!!! I fully support sia and this film – XO

    TO THOSE WHO DON'T WANNA READ THIS WHOLE COMMENT, YOU CAN READ THE FIRST REPLY TO THIS COMMENT.

    Hello!
    First of all, please don't hate on me, as I am not trying to hate on anyone or take sides.
    I just wanna say that I understand both perspectives: People Offended By This Video AND Sia And Her Fans.

    I get why people got offended by this video. They felt mocked and they are tired of people being stereotypical and treating them less like a person. They're tried of the bullying that they have probably experienced throughout their life. So I understand that this could have offended them. They're humans too and they have feelings.
    Sia also added a ton of bright colors to a movie that was supposed to be autistic friendly. That can overwhelm autistic people. The trailer also didn't even have captions, so it's clearly made for abled people.
    And some of her tweets were really rude aswell. She swore at people. When someone said "Some autistic actors respond to those tweets. We all said we could have acted in it on a short notice. These excuses are just that- excuses. The fact of the matter is zero effort was made to include anyone who was actually autistic" and Sia replied with "Maybe you're just a bad actor." wich was something really mean to say. She hurt some people's feelings by responding in an unprofessional way to people who were saying that this made them feel like they were being mocked. She tried supporting Autism Speaks a few years after the movie was finished. She then lied about not knowing that they were such a polarizing group, even tho she was informed back in May and has done a few years of research.

    I also understand Sia's perspective. First of all, I wanna say that people are misunderstanding something. This movie is NOT representing AUTISTIC PEOPLE. It's representing ONE AUTISTIC PERSON. Sia's friend. Sia has said multiple times that this movie is inspired by her friend. So it's not supposed to be mocking or being stereotypical. It's based on a true story about someone she knows and is close with. Maybe that person actually acts like that. Some people are saying that she is representing autism wrongly. How can it be "wrong" when there are different types of Autism? Maybe this is how her friend acts. Again, it's a story about ONE person. People were quick to assume. Those people should have done more research because now people's feelings are being hurt and Sia's movie that she has worked on for 15 years is getting attacked because some people spread misinformation about this film.
    Ok, now I'll let you read this:
    Here is something that a YouTube User named Tala twh commented on another video:
    "So the film was written 15 years ago with the help of an autistic friend of Sia, the story is based on that. 5 years ago they cast and Sia wanted an autistic person as the protagonist, she auditioned dozens of girls with that specific autism, however, some doctors, family members and girls refused after knowing when it would be stressful. There is much more behind this but it is too long. Sia and the producers had prepared to host them and put them at ease but it could cause serious trauma. So she decided to put her "almost daughter" Maddie as the protagonist, in the cast of the film there are 13 autistic people, plus many other minorities, including the LGBT community etc… Sia wanted to make the film to show people that autism isn't bad, it's something that can be wonderful, it's the story of two sisters, one of them addicted to drugs. The autistic girl is likely to get her sister out of the drug addiction. Sia is the director and had two autistic counselors by her side the whole time of filming. Sia after she finished filming and editing the film showed it to a room full of autistic persons and everyone said the film is fantastic and approved the interpretation. An autistic-led association called Maddie's performance flawless, a 100% accurate interpretation. There were rumors going around saying that Sia got help from Autism Speaks, but it's fake news, it has nothing to do with it. Her team just retweeted one of their tweets 4 years after filming ended. I explained to her that it was not good and she publicly apologized, she didn't know. I am autistic and I followed all the shooting, I am proud, if someone criticises the film also criticizes the minorities who worked on it. Sia created the story based on love, she didn't want to offend anyone, she spent all her money to make this dream come true. It's a musical about love, it doesn't want to mock anyone. Sia is a really good person, but after 15 years of work it is not nice to be told that the film sucks, she had a nervous breakdown. She's good, she paid for us fans operations, she fed us sometimes. Like at Thanksgiving, she went to the supermarket and without saying who she was she paid for everyone's shopping. She made music videos like "The Greatest" against discrimination and to support bullied people and she has done many campaigns. She had no bad ideas and autistic people were both in the production and in the script and in the film itself. I found many comments spreading fake news or assuming what the movie was like. It's not for mockery, it's accurate and based on a true story. Give her a chance and share of you want ❤️
    Love, bye"

    Thank you to that person for the explanation.
    So as you can see in their comment, Sia has tried to have multiple girls audition for the movie, but some doctors, family members and girls refused after knowing that it would be stressful.
    So yes, she did make an effort. People are saying that maybe her workplace was too stressful. Yes, it could be. However, don't assume. Maybe those girls needed to be more protected from doing really stressful things and that's why those girls' doctors and family members also refused for the girls. So maybe Sia didn't wanna stress anyone out.
    Yes, Sia could have had an autistic actor to play the main character. And it would be great if she did. But she didn't. She used Maddie Ziegler. And… that's fine… because it's acting. Actors are paid to act. You don't need to be your character in real life to be able to play the role of that character in an act. It's called acting. I played a queen, a police officer, a fairy etc when I was younger in my school plays or for our theatre club performances. I played a Robot in a Musical Theatre group dance. Even tho I am not a queen, police officer, fairy, robot, etc in reality. It was acting. And was that illegal? No. It's an act, it's a play. Acting is being able to play characters that are also different to ones self.
    This is not a documentary. This is a story about Sia's friend. Yes, I know that this is a very serious representation, but we have not seen the movie to know if it was represented well or not yet. I repeat, they are not representing people with autism. They are representing a specific person with a certain type of autism. They know that person. Sia also had autistic people giding her throughout the making of the movie. And no, she didn't collaborate with Autism Speaks for the making of the movie. Once again, people are trying to spread fake news and misinformation.
    And I am 99.99999999% sure that ANYBODY ON THE PLANET would be EXTREMELY ANGRY if they worked on something for 15 YEARS and that project got so much hate because people assumed certain things.

    In conclusion,
    Sia did not collaborate with Autism Speaks for the making of the movie. People were spreading misinformation.
    This movie is NOT supposed to represent AUTISTIC PEOPLE, it's supposed to represent ONE AUTISTIC PERSON. Sia's friend. Maybe her friend actually acts like that. It's not a documentary. It's a story about a specific person with a certain type of autism.
    Sia had multiple autisic people giding her throughout the making of this movie.
    Sia tried to get multiple autistic girls to audition for the movie, but it was too stressful for those girls.
    And I am 99.99999999% sure that ANYBODY ON THE PLANET would be EXTREMELY ANGRY if they worked on something for 15 YEARS and that project got so much hate because people assumed certain things.
    But I also understand that people got offended by this. They felt mocked and they are tired of people being stereotypical and treating them less like a person. They're tried of the bullying that they have probably experienced throughout their life. So I understand that this could have offended them. They're humans too and they have feelings.

    I think that it was wrong of people to spread misinformation about Sia's movie and be so quick to assume that she was being stereotypical. She wasn't. She was telling a story of a specific person with a certain type of Autism. It was based on a true story. And she put 15 years of hard work into this and people are being so quick to judge a book by its cover. She's only human. How would you feel if you were in her shoes?
    But I also understand that some people's feelings were hurt. They are humas too and have feelings.
    Sia should not have responded in a rude way to those tweets. She should not have lied about to not knowing who Autism Speaks was, and she shouldn't have supported them. She should have made the trailer more autisic – friendly(add captions and have less bright colors).
    And, of course, the people spreading misinformation, fake news and lies about this movie aren't any better. What they did should not have happened either. And don't judge a book by it's cover.

    That's my opinion. I am not trying to hate on anyone or take sides. I just wanna say that I understand both perspectives.

    And….there could always be more to the story(about this whole situation) that we don't know(in both perspectives).

    Dear YOU, whoever YOU are, whoever is reading this,
    It's never too late to do the next right thing. We can do this. Together.
    It's gonna be okay.
    ❤️
    🎶Together, we can take it higher🎶
