Media Roundup of Me Before You Criticism
I’m grateful for this roundup as I’ve been unable to follow this as closely as I would have liked while on holiday.
This is a collection of the criticism by the disabled community and allies of the book and film Me Before You. I have also included some mainstream media coverage of the criticism and protests. If I missed anything let me know in the comments or on Twitter.
