Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso has addressed the cancellation of Netflix’s “Girlboss”
The founder of Nasty Gal and IRL inspo for Netflix’s Girlboss, Sophia Amoruso, has responded to news that the show has been canceled.
The entrepreneur, businesswoman, and author, whose book of the same title was the source material for the show, took to social media after The Hollywood Reporter announced that the show wouldn’t be continued.
As the Los Angeles Times reported, Amoruso took to her Instagram story to share her thoughts on the news.
“So that Netflix series about my life got canceled,” she shared. “While I’m proud of the work we did, I’m looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out.”
Continuing, Amoruso said that, while things have come to an end, she enjoyed her time working on the show.
“It was a good show, and I was privileged to work with incredible talent, but living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months,” she added. “It will be nice to someday tell the story of what’s happened in the last few years. Ppl read the headline, not the correction, I’ve learned.”
Despite the news and her Instagram story, Amoruso shared a picture of herself smiling, writing in the caption that she is entering “new era.”
Indeed, earlier this month the 33-year-old announced that she has a new book coming out, described as “an interactive journal filled with tips, tricks, and guerrilla tactics for turning pretty much anything into lemonade.”
The cancellation of Girlboss follows Netflix’s new cut-throat approach to their original programming. So far this year, the streaming giant has canceled its high budget Baz Luhrmann project The Get Down, as well as the Wachowski sisters’ science-fiction drama Sense8, which sparked a huge fan campaign and response from Netflix.
Thankfully, it seems that Amoruso doesn’t have any bad blood with the network, and is moving on to other endeavors. Well, she knows how to hustle.
