The New York Times film critic Lena Wilson has hit out at actress Amandla Stenberg on social media.

Lena announced that she had received a direct message from Amandla on her Instagram about the review she had made for her film Bodies Bodies Bodies.

Amandla, who came out as gay in 2018, had offended Lena’s copy, which referenced cleavage, but called her NYT review “great.”

Lena’s review of the cleavage consisted of one sentence that read, “The only thing that really sets Bodies Bodies apart is their place in the A24 hype machine, where they double as a 95-minute promotion for cleavage and the latest single by Charli XCX.”

“I looked at my DM request and found this, which I’ll let speak for itself a bit now. For context, I reviewed Bodies Bodies Bodies for the New York Times and really didn’t like it, and I said so. Ironically, though, I did praise the acting.’

“I don’t want this to become anything else, I’m devastated to have even received this news. I was a real big fan of hers but I’m posting it because I don’t want this person who has more social power than me to think that it’s fucking okay to do something like that. And that’s it.’

She captioned TikTok, “Unfathomably weird being bullied by a whole different lesbian, ‘I don’t want you in the dressing room while I change my clothes.’
