Her casting in the movie was criticized online by sections of original author Roberts' fan base who had an issue with Milano's role in the "Me Too" movement. Roberts publicly defended the casting, saying, "To those who state they'll never read my work again due to differing political viewpoints and opinions, or because a talented, experienced actor will play a role, I can only say that's their choice. I believe Ms. Milano and I will survive it."
