'The Idol' exposé by Rolling Stone is getting The Weeknd mocked
The Weeknd is getting mocked for his response to Rolling Stone's 'The Idol' exposé.
The Weeknd serves as co-creator on HBO’s upcoming series “The Idol,”.
He responded to a Rolling Stone article that claimed there's trouble in paradise for the production.
His real name is Abel Tesfaye.
The Grammy-winning artist tweeted after the exposé went live: “@RollingStone did we upset you?”.
The response was a retort to Rolling Stone’s scathing exposé that claimed HBO’s "The Idol" is plagued with issues.
The investigation featured 13 sources close to the production who all seemed to share the same sentiment: "It was, let’s just say, a s— show.”.
Rolling Stone reported that the production suffered constant delays, reshoots and rewrites.
After Tesfaye felt the show was heading too much into a “female perspective,” original director Amy Seimetz abruptly exited.
In the clip Weeknd shared in his response, his character from "The Idol," Tedros, is snuggled up to Lily-Rose Depp’s Jocelyn.
