Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee has fired back at Hole singer Courtney Love after she called the Crue’s recently released biopic, The Dirt, the “dumbest Netflix film ever.”
In a new question-and-answer session with Interview magazine, Love recounted a day when she had three girlfriend over for massages, saying, “We watched the dumbest Netflix film ever called The Dirt. It’s so stupid and vile about women, and just f**king dumb.”
She continued, “We all got our bodies worked on and watched this white rapper named Machine Gun Kelly (who plays Lee), and we just made jokes. I was like, ‘When’s Ozzy gonna snort the ant?’ Then, within seconds, he snorted the ant. Then the Nikki Sixx character was like, ‘I have a new girlfriend. She’s sweet. She’s wonderful.’ I was like, ‘And her name is heroin.’ Two seconds later: ‘Her name is heroin.'”
After news of Love’s comments went viral, Lee took to Twitter to slam the musician and actress, writing, “Hey @Courtney When’s your movie coming out? Oh wait…. Never!!!!!” Love has actually acted in several movies, while her relationship with her late husband Kurt Cobain has been at the center of at least two documentaries.
While seemingly a hit with fans, The Dirt currently has a 39% critic score from 66 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, the online review aggregation service. Fans on the same site have given the film a 95% audience score from 6,334 reviews.
