Another viewer wrote: “Started Blond and turned it off in record time. Graphically depicting rape on screen is in no way a meaningful way of depicting the horrors of sexual assault. Please, I beg you, leave this woman alone and stop slapping SA survivors and women in the face.”

Most viewers agreed that de Armas did an impressive job as Monroe, but felt let down by the film as a whole.

One viewer tweeted: “I’m watching #Blond and I have to say that I hope someone will check on Ana de Armas and make sure she’s okay. Marilyn was exploited and this film seems like just more of that.”

Another wrote: “I was watching #Blond. It’s one of the most misogynistic films I’ve ever seen. Not a film about misogyny, but a misogynistic film. I could weep for Ana de Armas – who was great – playing in such a hideous and exploitative mess. You and MM deserve so much better.”
