The film was called Good News and according to Deadline, took inspiration from the arcs of such contemporary artists as Mac Miller, Lil Peep, Pop Smoke and Juice Wrld.

However, Mac‘s brother, Miller McCormick, is not a fan of the title at all.

“f*** you. f*** your movie. at least change the title,” he posted on his Instagram Story, according to Complex.

After his comment, the production company on the movie, Rivulet Media, addressed the controversy.

“Our film is about a fictional musician on the rise with a troubled life,” the statement read via E!. “It’s not in any way a biopic or based on any artist’s true life. We realize the title, which was intended as an homage to Mac Miller, and other artists gone too soon, feels disrespectful.”

It continued, “We’ve heard from many people on social media who have found offense with the title so, without hesitation, we will change it.”

Mac sadly died in September 2018 from an accidental drug overdose at the age of 26.
