Courtney Love slams Pamela Anderson miniseries for focusing on release of sex tape that 'destroyed my friend Pamela's life'
Courtney Love slammed Hulu's upcoming Pam & Tommy project and star Lily James.
James plays Love's longtime girlfriend, Pamela Anderson, in the miniseries that followed the marriage of the former Baywatch star to rocker Tommy Lee (portrayed by Sebastian Stan) and the events surrounding the release of her infamous sex video after the theft from one Safe follows in 1995.
In a Facebook post on Sunday, Love called out those behind the show, accusing them of exploiting a "gross" invasion of privacy that "destroyed" Anderson's life. She also described what it was like, as one of the few women in the music industry at the time, to see her male colleagues viewing the footage with "malicious glee" or how one rejoiced at someone else's misfortune.
"I find it so outrageous," said the front woman of Hole of Pam & Tommy. "When Pam / Tommy Sex Tape was out / I [Holes drummer Patty Schemel] @pattyschemel and [Holes bassist Melissa Auf der Maur] @xmadmx made a record. And the lonely women in many recording studios in LA. Where everyone / EVERYONE! The Human resource engineers / producers / owners / watched the sex tape with glee. Laughing, it was disgusting. I forbade anyone to discuss it. It ruined my friend Pamela's life.
Love also claimed that she was contacted by those behind the production to approve the use of her 1994 Rolling Stone cover, captured by photographer Mark Seliger, which she empathically declined. The star closed their targeted message with one aim on James. "And shame on Lily James, whoever the f - she is."
EW asked Pamela Anderson for a comment.
Hulu released the first photos of James and Stan earlier this month, showing fans on all social media celebrating the former Downton Abbey star and her likeness to Anderson. Stan was also at the end of attention when his torso was adorned with tattoos and a pair of nipple rings.

Anderson tied the knot with Mötley Crüe frontman just four days after meeting them in 1995. The sex tape was shot during her honeymoon and was later stolen from her home and posted online by electrician Rand Gauthier (who played Seth Rogen on the series). In 1998, they won a copyright infringement lawsuit against the Internet Entertainment Group, which sold the company online.
The cast is rounded off by Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spencer Granese and Mozhan Marnò.
