After it was announced that Elisabeth Moss would play Hill — who resigned from Congress last year after it was reported that she had an affair with a staffer — in a Blumhouse TV show, Hill’s former House Twitter account was hijacked with a message early on Wednesday.
“Katie’s former staff here. Disappointed in so m any folks – including Elizabeth Moss, @Blumhouse, & @michaelseitzman – regarding today’s announcement,” the alleged former staffers declared. “This is an incredibly sensitive situation. We appreciate the instinct to defend our former boss, an LGBTQ+ woman who faced abuse from her husband. What happened to Katie Hill shouldn’t happen to anyone. But, this moment requires more nuance, as Katie Hill’s story – our story – is also one of workplace abuse and harassment.”
