Lily Allen said that the series "Fawn" would not be so popular if the victim of the stalker was a woman

Singer Lily Allen, in an interview with The Sunday Times Style, said that Netflix's latest hit, the based-on-true-events dramedy Fawn, would not have been as popular if the stalker's victim had been a woman.

“I found it interesting that Little Fawn became so popular. I think that if the main character had been a woman, it would not have been given the green light,” she said.

"People won't be even remotely interested in women's history. Even though women probably find themselves in these situations much more often than men."

Lily Allen herself became a victim of a stalker: in 2015, an obsessed fan suffering from schizophrenia entered the singer’s house at night while she and her children were sleeping. The man said that he wanted to collect a million-dollar debt: Lily allegedly used his songs. He was also convinced that the singer was involved in the death of his father. In 2016, he was convicted: ordered to undergo treatment and forbidden to approach Lily. Allen herself criticized the police for not taking her case seriously and trying to pass off the prosecution as burglary.

"I can't tell you what their motives were, but from my point of view, this guy committed this terrible crime, and I was sure he would do it again," Lily said.

“There were several similar cases with men that I knew a little about. They were surprised that I said that the police had treated me badly because they had experience with female stalkers and they said that the police had taken harsh measures "Considering how women feel when this happens to them, it's quite upsetting."

The series "Fawn", despite the fact that it starred little-known actors, was a huge success. It is based on real events: comedian Richard Gadd, who also played the main role, spoke about the persecution he actually faced from a female stalker. Although he asked not to look for people who were the prototypes of the heroes, the woman who was pursuing him was soon identified on the Internet.

A woman named Fiona Harvey gave an interview to Piers Morgan and said that she was actually the victim: Gadd allegedly made her out to be the villain, and now she is facing online bullying. She initially denied his stories - for example, that she bombarded him with letters and stalked him, but during the conversation she began to get confused. This interview caused a mixed reaction from the audience: many felt that Fiona had serious mental illness, and making her a star for the sake of PR and views was unethical.
