Pam & Tommy is an 8-episode series that Hulu describes as “a comedic limited series on the true story behind the release of the first ever viral video in history — the sex tape of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee.” It’s filming now and stars Sebastian Stan as Tommy Lee and Lily James as a shockingly accurate Pamela Anderson. Well, not everyone is as excited about Lily’s over-lined lips, razor-thin brows, buxom cleavage, and eyes so smokey you’d think it was an episode of Station 19. Courtney Love, a longtime friend of Pamela’s, took to Facebook to drag the show and Lily for deigning to re-live what for her friend was not exactly the best of times. But hey, she hasn’t seen it yet. Maybe the good television production people at Hulu won’t use a scene in the movie where Sebastian Stan rings a boat horn with his penis… okay, obviously they’re going to do that. AND THEY BETTER!
UsWeekly says that Courtney really let the show have it on Facebook, saying that production actually contacted her about using a picture of her. The show wanted to use a cover of Rolling Stone from 1994 on which Courtney appears, but because she’s disgusted with them and believes the series is causing Pamela “complex trauma” she didn’t let them use it. She also really dragged us all for wanting to relive Pamela’s sex tape which for her was absolutely not fun:
“I find this so fucking outrageous,” Love wrote via Facebook on Sunday, May 16.
She recalled when Lee and Anderson’s sex tape was released after it was stolen in 1995. “Myself, @pattyschemel [and] @xmadmx were making a record. And the lone women in many recording studios in [LA] Where all / ALL! The staff engineers / producers / owners / were watching the sex tape with huge [schadenfreude]… Guffaws,” Love wrote. “It was disgusting. I banned anyone discussing it… It destroyed my friend Pamela’s life. Utterly.”
The Portland native explained that her December 1994 Rolling Stone cover needed to be approved to appear onscreen in the Hulu series. “I said “fuck no.” …Shocked. Gentleman [sic] don’t approve this sort of thing.”
“My heart goes out to Pammy,” the Hole frontwoman said, adding that the series was “further causing her complex trauma.”
Courtney then decided to point her rage gun at Lily herself like Lily just slept with her husband:
Love wrapped up her message by addressing the star of Pam & Tommy directly: “And shame on Lily James whoever the fuck she is. #vile.”
Whoever the fuck Lily James is? Excuse me! How dare Courtney! She is the young version of the character Meryl Streep played in Mamma Mia! as well as the hot young actress who was in the headlines for maybe homewrecking a maybe open-marriage arrangement situation. Put some respect on her name! And here are more pics of Lily (or “whoever the fuck she is” as Courtney calls her) as Pammy:

You know, I have to call out Courtney here. If Lily James done up in an authentic Pamela look is an upsetting portrayal, then she really should have called out Kendall Jenner’s shitty Pamela Anderson costume which really just looked like a Great Value Willam Belli costume.
