Jenna Ortega received praise for her dramatic cinematography and trending dance movements from the Netflix series Wednesday. However, the lead actress has received harsh criticism from producer Steven DeKnight, who even described her as “difficult” to deal with, despite the fact that fans are really excited about the sequel. On the internet, people are debating Jenna’s behavior and whether she will be replaced in the sequel.
It all began when, on March 6, Jenna made her appear on the Armchair Expert Podcast. She described the development of her character and acknowledged that the script needed improvement. The actress continued by saying that she occasionally had the freedom to alter her lines and even say “no” to plot issues.
Steven DeKnight seemed to take offense to this since he called her out for disclosing her artistic differences in public. The Wednesday producer ultimately cited Jenna’s age for what he considers an “immature” action, branding her poisonous and unprofessional in the process.
Producer Steven reacted, “She’s young, so maybe she doesn’t know any better (but she should.) She should also ask herself how she would feel if the showrunners gave an interview and talked about how difficult she was and refused to perform the material.”
He further reacted and called her “toxic,” and wrote, “This kind of statement is beyond entitled and toxic. I love her work, but life’s too short to deal with people like this in this business.”
So now the question is: Will Steven’s last tweets replace Jenna Ortega in Wednesday?
In the meantime, critics have been attacking Steven for his statements on Twitter, but he is actively replying to all the hate.
