After not-so-great reviews and fan critique, Netflix has decided to cancel “Girlboss” ― the show “loosely” based on the life of Nasty Gal founder and #Girlboss writer Sophia Amoruso. The series ran for one 13-episode season. 

According to Variety, Amoruso took to her Instagram story on Saturday to share the news, writing:

So that Netflix series about my life got canceled. While I’m proud of the work we did, I’m looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out. It was a good show, and I was privileged to work with incredible talent, but living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months. Yes, I can be difficult. No, I’m not a dick. No, someone named Shane never cheated on me. It will be nice to someday tell the story of what’s happened in the last few years. Ppl read the headline, not the correction, I’ve learned.

Once she posted the statement, many assumed she was “throwing shade” at the show for misrepresenting her life and personality. Amoruso headed to Instagram again to silence the haters. 

“Jesus Christ. I absolutely loved the show and am so sad it’s over. I am grateful for it all,” she wrote on her Instagram story. “But how a website can conflate ‘throwing shade’ with saying that a woman is excited to own her narrative after bankruptcy headlines, false lawsuits, and a dramatized series is created (which I will repeat: I loved and am proud of) is bonkers. I’m sorry if I hurt anyone. Being me usually means hurting someone at any given time. Maybe I am a dick after all.” 

Thank you @charlizeafrica for choosing to play and produce flawed female characters. Proud to be one.

Amoruso’s fashion retailer Nasty Gal filed for bankruptcy last year just as the show was gearing up to be released. It debuted on Netflix on April 21, but seemingly failed to secure a committed following. “Girlboss” received a 32 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, as sites like The New York Times and The Guardian said the on-screen Sophia (Britt Robertson) “isn’t particularly interesting” and is “a walking selfie, whining about having to work for a living.”

“Pitch Perfect” screenwriter Kay Cannon served as executive producer and showrunner of the series, with Charlize Theron also executive producing alongside Laverne McKinnon, Beth Kono, Christian Ditter and Amoruso.

“Girlboss” joins other canceled Netflix series, such as “The Get Down” and “Sense8.”

With a great “Spider-Man” movie comes a greatly diverse cast.

Marvel and Sony’s new spin on the story, “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” includes actors from all different backgrounds, ethnicities and ages taking on pivotal roles. Zendaya and Jacob Batalon play Spider-Man’s friends, Laura Harrier is his love interest, and Marisa Tomei plays a younger version of Aunt May.

Everyone seems flipped around in one way or another, and the actors are into it.

At the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” press conference in New York on Sunday, Latino actor Tony Revolori thanked producers for giving him the role of Flash Thompson, which is traditionally a white character.

“Thank you to Jon [Watts], Amy [Pascal] and Kevin [Feige] for casting a 5-foot-8 brown guy to play a 6-foot-2 blond, blue-eyed guy,” said the actor. 

The actors and producers of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” were asked about the inspiration behind the casting during the press conference, and producer Amy Pascal stepped up and dropped the mic.

“I would say the inspiration for it was reality,” said Pascal.

Yup. Reality.

The response was met with applause and “amens” from the cast and audience. 

It appears everyone in production was on the same page from the beginning. Director Jon Watts previously addressed the diversity topic, similarly telling The Daily Beast:

Peter Parker goes to high school in Queens, and Queens is one of ― if not the ― most diverse places in the world. So I just wanted it to reflect what that actually looks like. 

By looking at the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” cast, it’s clear this is not the same old “Spider-Man” movie we’ve become accustomed to. This is something better, and it has the positive social media reviews — and will likely get the box-office numbers — to prove it.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” swings into theaters July 7.
