Stillwater: Amanda Knox criticises Matt Damon movie for profiting off her story

 Amanda Knox, the American lady who was tried and acquitted of homicide in Italy greater than a decade in the past, has hit out at a Hollywood film that she stated seeks to revenue off her title with out her consent.

Knox, who spent 4 years in jail in Perugia, Italy, earlier than being acquitted of the 2007 homicide of her roommate, expressed her frustration as “Stillwater” opened in U.S. film theaters this week.

“Does my name belong to me? My face? What about my life? My story? Why does my name refer to events I had no hand in?

Most recently, the film #STILLWATER,” Knox wrote in a prolonged publish on her Twitter account on Thursday.
