Did Whitney get a whole lot wrong? Houston’s family said they were outraged that Whitney went forward without their consent or input. Pat Houston issued a statement about the film:
“…to go after someone who cannot correct what you get wrong, someone who — like so many people, and especially women — struggled to hold up their humanity and live with dignity despite their personal challenges, is wrong.
I don’t think it ever entered their minds that they were assaulting the legacy of another individual; they just want the job or the opportunity to shine.”
