The internet was set ablaze when photos surfaced of actress Lily James dressed as the iconic Baywatch star Pamela Anderson for the upcoming Hulu limited series Pam & Tommy — which focuses on the aftermath of Anderson and rocker Tommy Lee’s infamous sex tape — but there is one person not excited about the project: Courtney Love.
In a private Facebook post, the musician blasted the upcoming miniseries. “I find this so f**king outrageous,” Love began her post, reported PEOPLE.
“When Pam/Tommy sex tape was out/ myself @pattyschemel @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 schadenfraude..Guffaws, It was disgusting," the alternative-rock legend wrote. "I banned anyone discussing it. It destroyed my friend Pamelas life. Utterly”
Love continued her online rant defending her friend and throwing shade at James. “My heart goes out to Pammy, further causing her complex trauma,” she wrote, adding: “And shame on Lily James whoever the f**k she is. #vile.”
Pam & Tommy recently began filming, starring James as Pamela Anderson and Sebastian Stan portraying Mötley Crüe rocker Tommy Lee. The show will tell the story of the Hollywood couple’s wild four-day romance leading up to their wedding in 1995, as well as the making and subsequent scandal of their sex tape leak.
The former flames sued the distributor of their sex tape, Internet Entertainment Group, before reaching a confidential settlement. The tape was still released publicly. By February 1998, it was being sold in stores, going on to sell hundreds of thousands of copies. According to Rolling Stone, the tape made an estimated $77 million in less than 12 months.
Anderson and Lee called it quits shortly after their sex tape was released in 1998 and share two sons: Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 23.
