Drew Barrymore comes to Ryan Kiera Armstrong's defense over Firestarter Razzie nomination

“She is younger and it is bullying. We do want to be cautious about how we speak to or about people because it encourages other people to join in on that bandwagon. I’m glad to see people didn’t jump on the ‘let’s make fun of her’ wave and instead said, ‘This isn’t right.’”

She adds, “You got to have a sense of humor but when you’re talking about children all bets are off. I don’t like it.”Armstrong plays lead Charlie McGee in the recent adaptation of the Stephen King novel, about a young girl who develops pyrokinetic abilities. The role was previously played by Barrymore herself in the 1984 film from Mark L. Lester when she was 9 years old.

Now retract the Razzie Awards. Because kids in Hollywood are abused, exploited, and in many cases ruined for life, it's probably best not to give them harsh awards for bad acting on top of that all.
