All the world loves a Lifetime movie. The stories are never too complex, no matter the issues they may touch upon. If you miss the first 30 minutes, that’s all right. The stories are such that you can catch up pretty easily. And most viewers don’t have particularly high expectations. So if the movie is even halfway decent, you walk away a satisfied viewer. The movie has to be darn awful for people to raise a stink.
That’s exactly what happened after the network aired its biopic Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B this weekend,which focused on the star who was killed in a plane crash at the age of 22 in 2001. And viewers didn’t just lash out at Lifetime for broadcasting a garbage movie. They went all the way off on Wendy Williams for producing it. She was even trending for a while on Saturday night.
