Way back when the new Charmed reboot was first announced, one of the show's original cast members took offence to the way the new series was being marketed.
Holly Marie Combs, who played Piper Halliwell in the original series, thought that The CW saying that the reboot would be a "fierce, funny feminist reboot” was saying the original series wasn't any of those things when, in fact, it was.
A lot of Charmed fans were angry that the series was being reimagined without the original sisters, but things seemed to cool down over time... that is, until the trailer for the reboot was published online.
Fans of the original show slammed the trailer online and now, Holly has slammed the director of the new series!
Brad Siberling was answering a fan's question about why there wasn't a reboot of the show that featured the original cast and when Holly saw his answer, she hit back saying that his reply was "inaccurate".
Soon afterwards, she told him to "suck it" and so Brad decided to screenshot her reply and post a burn of his own:
Yahoo had also written an article about the reboot's first trailer, in which they apparently incorrectly quoted Holly, and so she released a statement on Twitter explaining how she actually feels about the reboot:
"I appreciate the jobs and opportunities the Charmed reboot has created…I will never understand what is fierce, funny, or feminist in creating a show that basically says the original actresses are too old to do a job they did 12 years ago. I hope the new show is far better than the marketing so the true legacy does remain.
"Reboots [fare] better when they honour the original as opposed to taking shots at the original. Reboots also do better when they listen to a still passionate fan base which is what it’s all about, isn’t it? That’s why we do reboots. The fans are why we all get to do what we do. So we wish them well and hope for success."
So much drama!
