Whitney Houston's Mother on Lifetime biopic "please, please let her rest"

I'm really looking forward to this Whitney Houston movie starring newbie YaYa DaCosta. If the pics are any indication, then it seems YaYa nailed. Entertainment Tonight was on set recently capturing  some behind the scenes pics.
The resemblance is just uncanny
Whitney Houston's Mother is allegedly upset over the biopic and released a statement urging the filmmakers to let the pop icon rest. Cissy said:

"Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family's objections. No one connected with this movie knew Whitney or anything about her relationship with Bobby. In the two years since Whitney's death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her. I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn't know her. We are exhausted by the continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her. Please please let her rest."

But wait Mama Cissy, you are asking folks to let her rest- but didn't you publish a tell all book about your daughter months after she passed? And what about that ill fated reality show that the Houston family shot shortly after Nippy died? Kinda contradictory right? The Houston family is just a wee bit shady sometimes. I know they are grieving but man...

ET spoke to the film's director Angela Bassett about Bobbi Kristina's criticism of the film (she wanted to play her mother in the movie) and Ang replied "I can understand it. She adores her mother, and in this process I lost my mother (Bassett lost her mother in June) as well, so I get it and I love Bobbi Kristina.

Lead Yaya Dacosta says she's tuned out all the criticism. "I kinda shut off all social media because I didn't wanna be distracted," she said.

Listen I will be tuning, I can't wait to see this movie!
