Princess Diana deserved so much better.

The documentary follows the gruesome look into Spears' career and how the media failed her. This inspired us to ask the BuzzFeed Community which celebrities deserved better from the media, and it turns out most of the submissions were about women. Here's what they had to say.

@Knightcartoons cartoon is not racist or sexist .... it rightly mocks poor behavior by a tennis legend ... Mark has the full support of everyone @theheraldsun

Williams has received a lot of unfair treatment since the beginning of her career — she's been labeled as too competitive, not "feminine enough," and too tough on the tennis court. In 2018, she was horribly mistreated by the Herald Sun's cartoonist Mark Knight when he drew a racist and sexist cartoon of Williams at the US Open jumping on her racket, like an impatient child. Despite her incredible success as the greatest athlete of all time with 23 Grand Slam titles, the media unfortunately isn't always on her side.

14. And Anna Nicole Smith
