Why this petition matters

Started by Hannah Marshall

Musical artist Sia is planning on releasing a film next year titled “Music.” One of the characters in this film, the titular character Music, is autistic. However, she is played by neurotypical actress Maddie Ziegler. In addition, no autistic individuals were consulted on the film. Stereotypes are used throughout the trailer, and the visuals are nauseating to autistic people who would’ve wanted to see the film.

As an autistic individual, I am asking that this film is canceled. It is extremely offensive to myself and other autistic individuals. Sia has shown no remorse for her inaccurate and hurtful betrayal of the community.

This film will not have a major impact on history. Canceling it will express that intolerance to neurodivergence is unacceptable in today’s society. Sia and her associates have additional avenues for funds; they will survive even if no money is made from this film.
