Anne Hathaway Issues An Apology Over Her New Movie The Witches “I Detest Cruelty”

Anne posted a video to Instagram from the Lucky Fin Project, a nonprofit that raises awareness for limb differences, along with her own words.

“I have recently learned that many people with limb differences, especially children, are in pain because of the portrayal of the Grand High Witch in The Witches,” Anne started out by saying in her post.

“Let me begin by saying I do my best to be sensitive to the feelings and experiences of others not out of some scrambling PC fear, but because not hurting others seems like a basic level of decency we should all be striving for.”

“As someone who really believes in inclusivity and really, really detests cruelty, I owe you all an apology for the pain caused.”

“I am sorry. I did not connect limb difference with the GHW when the look of the character was brought to me; if I had, I assure you this never would have happened.”

“I particularly want to say I’m sorry to kids with limb differences: now that I know better I promise I’ll do better.”

“And I owe a special apology to everyone who loves you as fiercely as I love my own kids: I’m sorry I let your family down.”
