Coaster in the Razzie Awards.

The ceremony which rewards the worst turnips in cinema each year made its mea culpa after naming a 12-year-old girl in the “worst actress” category.

In the list of nominees unveiled a few days ago, we indeed found the name of the young Ryan Kiera Armstrong for her role in

Firestarter

alongside Zac Efron.

Faced with the outcry caused by this initiative, John Wilson, co-creator of the Razzies, apologized via a press release relayed by

The Hollywood Reporter

.

“Sometimes you do things without thinking,” he said.

“We removed Armstrong's name from the final ballot.

We also believe that a public apology is due to Ms. Armstrong, and would like to say that we regret all the harm she has suffered,” continued John Wilson.

"We never intended to bury anyone's career," said the representative of the satirical ceremony.

Many reviews

The news of the appointment of Ryan Kiera Armstrong had led to many reactions from film professionals.

"The Razzies nominating Ryan Kiera Armstrong for Worst Actress as if she was the cause of

's mediocrity drives me hysterical," tweeted journalist Shannon McGrew.

“It was a pleasure to work with this wonderful, committed and focused young actress.

She deserves positive attention and encouragement,” said director Chris McKay.


I had the pleasure of working with Ryan Kiera Armstrong on THE TOMORROW WAR.

She is a great, committed, focused young actress and was a joy to work with.

She deserves positive attention and encouragement and here's one of our greatest modern film critics championing her.
