Stage performer Machine Gun Kelly reportedly will change the title of his upcoming ‘Good News’ movie after the harsh reaction of the brother of late rapper Mac Miller, Miller McCormick.
Mac Miller’s brother, Miller McCormick, reacted on his Instagram stories to the Good News movie of the same name as Mac Miller’s debut song.
The story of Machine Gun Kelly’s movie is said to be inspired by late artists like Miller, Juice WRLD, and Pop Smoke. Kelly is set to portray an artist trying to get ahead in the industry, but Miller’s brother, Miller McCormick, seems didn’t like the upcoming film.
Mac Miller’s brother wrote on IG Stories:
“F**k you, f**k your movie, at least change the title.”
After McCormick’s reaction went viral, the production of the movie reportedly issued a statement regarding the controversy. The statement said that the movie is about a fictional character and is in no way biographical.
However, they said they were aware that it felt a bit disrespectful because it was inspired by Mac Miller and other artists, and it looks like there will be a change to the title of the movie.
Here’s what statement:
“Our film is about a fictional musician on the rise with a troubled life. It’s not in any way a biopic or based on any artist’s true life. We realize the title, which was intended as an homage to Mac Miller, and other artists gone too soon, feels disrespectful.”
The statement continued:
“We’ve heard from many people on social media who have found offense with the title so, without hesitation, we will change it.”
