Earlier this week, we asked if Angelina Jolie deserved to lose her status as U.N. Ambassador, as some Bosnian women suggested in response to rumors about the storyline of her new film. Jolie responded to the letter, which condemns her story of a Serbian man and a Bosnian woman who fall in love during the Bosnian war, saying “There’s one person who has a gripe. The absolute majority of the people, population, the cast, prime minister, president have been extremely supportive.” In a statement made in Paris, she also stated that 95% of the film’s cast is survivors of the war.
When we asked our own readers whether Jolie should keep her seat in the U.N., most of you were ambivalent, saying you weren’t sure why she deserved to be there in the first place. But nearly 30% said she wasn’t fit for the role, agreeing with the Bosnian victims of sexual violence that she should have spoken with them and considered their perspectives as part of her research.
