Shane Warne’s daughter says plans to dramatize his life in a telemovie just months after his death are “beyond disrespectful”.
According to reports, Australia’s Nine Network began work on the project weeks after his death in March, saying the two-part film – called “Warnie” – would be a fitting tribute.
Warne had worked as a commentator at the station for over 20 years.
However, Brooke Warne disagrees.
In a story posted to Instagram, she said “Do any of you have any respect for Dad? Or his family? Who did so much for Channel Nine and now you want to dramatize his life and our families (sic) life 6 months after he passed away?”
According to BBC News, Warne’s long-time manager James Erskine also previously criticised the production.
He is quoted as saying “He’s only been dead for a couple of months and for them to turn this around and think about doing some sensational thing, well they should be ashamed of themselves.”
Warne died on March 4th 2022 at the age of 52.
