Tom Ellis, who plays the titular character on Netflix’s Lucifer, was canceled by fans after supporting his wife, Meaghan Oppenheimer, who defended the movie Lindinhas. The French feature film, also from Netflix, has been accused of promoting child sexualization and pedophilia.
It all started with Oppenheimer sharing a tweet from screenwriter Jack Moore defending the film.
“Lindinhas is aggressively against the sexualization of minors. The film is literally about that. To say that you are in favor of pedophilia is like saying that Inglourious Basterds is in favor of Nazism, ”wrote Moore.
Many fans contested this tweet that was shared by Lucifer’s star wife and she explained her position on the social network.
“Look, everyone is acting like I said this is my favorite movie and I love it, which is not the case. All I said is that the message of the film is not the celebration of sexualization, as many are saying before watching it, their intention is to condemn it, ”wrote Meaghan Oppenheimer.
Since the controversy started, fans have gone to the networks to hit Oppenheimer and have also gone to Tom Ellis’ Twitter to criticize his wife. With that, he has been blocking such people, which certainly did not please many people.

The second part of season 5 of Lucifer will have the long awaited musical episode of the Netflix series. At DC FanDome, which won a second part on September 12, a preview of that chapter was revealed.
In it, Lucifer, Chloe, Dan and Ella do a number of Another One Bites the Dust. The song is a classic by Queen, a band that had Freddie Mercury as vocalist.
The episode is titled Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam. The musical number does not give many details of the plot, but it already excites fans.
The number takes place on a football field. There is a school band, cheerleaders, sports players and even police officers.
However, what it seems is that only Lucifer seems to be aware of that musical number.
Ildy Modrovich, Lucifer’s co-showrunner, commented on the episode on the DC FanDome panel. However, he gave no details about the story.
The head of the Netflix series commented that the musical episode needed a lot of organization. Not only that, with a broad structure.
Only the chapter required a special schedule for rehearsals and recordings. In addition, Tom Ellis, Lucifer’s interpreter, won a special suit just for dancing.
“We almost broke our series. I think we almost blew up our series, ”commented the showrunner.
Despite all this, the episode’s director, Sherwin Shilati, said that a lot of improvisation was done. Lauren German, for example, was the one who had the idea of Chloe rolling for Lucifer in the number that uses the Queen song.
“Lauren really takes care of that moment,” says the director.
Lucifer has yet to release the final episodes of Season 5 on Netflix. For now, fans can check out the first part of the season.
