Some Shania Twain fans have threatened to boycott the country-pop singer's new Netflix documentary after objecting to one of the contributors.
In Shania Twain: Not Just A Girl, a number of famous friends and collaborators will discuss the life and career of the 'You're Still The One' singer - and fans were ecstatic after the trailer dropped this week, showing contributions from stars like Lionel Richie, Avril Lavigne, Diplo and Orville Peck.
However, there was also controversy when music journalist Eve Barlow revealed in a now-deleted tweet that she would also be taking part.
Barlow has been hit with a wave of online trolling and abuse after speaking out in support of her friend Amber Heard during the notorious Depp Vs Heard defamation case.
Throughout the lengthy trial, Barlow spoke out in support of Amber Heard as she fought her case against the Pirates Of The Caribbean star.
As a result, the journalist was heavily scrutinised by Depp supporters - which only intensified after the jury ruled that Johnny Depp should be awarded $15M (£12.5M) in damages.
Depp had earlier lost a libel case against The Sun in which the newspaper labelled him a wife beater, with a judge ruling that he was responsible for 12 incidents of domestic violence against his ex-wife; a ruling that still stands in the UK.
Discussing her involvement in the documentary on Wednesday, the writer tweeted: "I'm honoured and excited to be a talking head in @ShaniaTwain's just announced brand new Netflix documentary... Let's go girls."
Discussing Shania's decision to include Eve Barlow in her documentary, angry Depp supporters suggested that they would now think twice about tuning in.
One furious Twitter user wrote: "Just seen Eve Barlow is one of the people talking in the New Shania Twain documentary, that's put me off it slightly not gunna lie."

Another complained: "I love Shania Twain so much!! Why does @Eve_Barlow have to be involved with this? Heartbroken that I won't be watching it for that very reason."
"I love Shania Twain but I won't be watching the documentary if Eve Barlow is part of it", threatened a third.

Gonna have to be a pass
Love you Shania but sorry
And a fourth fan tweeted: "I love @ShaniaTwain... been listening to her since I was a little kid, but I cannot watch anything that Eve Barlow is part of."

The special will follow Shania's life and exceptional music career, starting from her humble beginnings in Timmins, Ontario, as well as the hurdles she had to overcome to get to where she is today.
Shania will touch on some of her pitfalls, including her Lyme disease and dysphonia diagnoses in 2003, losing her parents in a tragic car accident, and her first husband's affair with her best friend.
Shania Twain: Not Just A Girl will be available to stream on Netflix from 26 July.
