A new film about a young Muslim girl is set to launch on Apple TV+ but many people are not taking to the story line too well.

The Apple TV+ drama ‘Hala’ is produced by Jada Pinkett Smith and will be streamed on December 6.

It is described as ‘a coming-of-age drama that focuses on a teenage Muslim girl who navigates the discordant worlds of a traditional household and a modern high school in Chicago’.

The lead role is played by Geraldine Viswanathan and in the trailer she discusses the difficulty she finds trying to fit in, as clips show her interfacing with her non-Muslim love interest, skateboarding, and fighting with her family.

But people have quickly lambasted Apple+ for perpetuating familiar stereotypes about Muslim women.
