Look, I hear Olivia and what she’s saying about a film being a product of its time. But the musical has problematic aspects, and it’s okay to acknowledge that and still enjoy the film, rather than completely pushing them under the rug.

Applebaum stated that she wasn’t involved in casting decisions and hopes people like how she’s portrayed Musa.
