From Morning Report, 8:20 am on 14 June 2021

Fifty-five thousand people have signed a petition calling for an end to the planned They are Us movie, which is set to star Rose Byrne as Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, and focus on the days following the 2019 mosque shootings.

Backlash to the project began on Friday shortly after Byrne's casting was announced.

Adibah Khan is an officer at the National Islamic Youth Association, which is behind the petition.
