Vivienne Westwood has officially denounced a new documentary dedicated to her life that’s due to be released later this year. In a tweet posted this weekend the designer branded the film “mediocre” and said she will not be endorsing it because it does not focus enough on her activism.

“Lorna Tucker asked to film Vivienne’s activism and followed her around for a couple of years, but there’s not even five minutes of activism in the film”, the statement read. “Instead, there’s lot of old fashion footage which is and available to view online.”

It concluded icily: “It’s a shame because the film is mediocre, and Vivienne and Andreas are not.” Yikes.

Lorna Tucker’s film, entitled Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist is due to be released on 31st March this year.
