Sebastian Stan is known for playing Captain America’s best friend and the Winter Soldier, Bucky Barnes, in the MCU. The actor recently gained province after starring in a Hulu series titled Pam & Tommy. The series is based on the case of the nonconsensual dissemination of Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson and musician Tommy Lee’s stolen sex tape in the 1990s. The incident greatly impacted the actress’s public image and caused her significant trauma.

Recently, Sebastian Stan and Lily James, the lead actors of the eight-episode series, received Emmy nominations for their portrayal of the incident. Sebastian Stan took to his Instagram to express his gratitude for the nomination and tagged his co-stars as well as the victims of the crime, Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. However, his inclusion of the Baywatch actress was not appreciated by the fans.

Even though the Hulu series centers around the impact of the leak of the sex tape on Pamela Anderson’s life, the show was made without the actress’ consent. Her close friend, Courtney Love, criticized the show in a Facebook post that she later deleted and called it “so f*cking outrageous.” She also added that the show caused Anderson “complex trauma.”

The show’s main aim was to highlight the misogyny that led to Pamela Anderson being slut-shamed while Tommy Lee was hailed as a ‘sex god.’ However, the lack of approval by the actress who experienced the misogyny defeats the entire purpose of the show. Moreover, the actress is clearly unhappy with the show since she has refrained from acknowledging its presence. Instead, she is working on producing her documentary with Netflix. In a note shared on Instagram, Pamela Anderson wrote,

“My life. A thousand imperfections. A million misperceptions. Wicked, wild, and lost. Nothing to live up to. I can only surprise you. Not a victim, but a survivor. And alive to tell the real story.”

Fans did not react well to Sebastian Stan tagging the actress in his story and took to Twitter to criticize the MCU actor for his move.

This is not the first time Sebastian Stan has received criticism about the Hulu show. His statement about watching the sex tape for “research” was also not taken well by the fans. All fans can hope for now is that the actress’ Netflix documentary will do justice to her story and give her the right platform to raise her voice against the oppression that she faced due to the leak of the sex tape.
