“It’s like one layer of crazy, it’s a seven-layer dip of insanity. I know that these are two people’s real lives and I know what it’s like to have your life put out in public.”
“I understand all the feelings, but they are actually offering up this information that nobody had to know. This is crazy!”
Barrymore received an overwhelming influx of criticism, with some fans of the show calling her ‘insensitive’.
