Since its launch last Friday, The Dirt has come under fire from some quarters.
It’s led bassist Nikki Sixx to respond, saying that while the critics “hate it” the fans are enjoying the film (opens in new tab).
It’s a fact backed up by review site Rotten Tomatoes (opens in new tab), which shows an overall score of 42% from the critics, and 85% from the general public.
In her review Vain said that while The Dirt was “demeaning towards women” and condoned “outlandish rock’n’roll antics,” it didn’t go far enough in documenting their wild legacy.
Lee tweeted Vain directly, saying: “Your review in Esquire of The Dirt was laughable. Jeff Tremaine and the cast killed it. It was our lives, we would know.
“Besides, what are you, like 30 something? Little girl you don’t even know about this life. Thanks for trying though.”
