The 34 year old American woman, who had been accused of executing a murder plan of Meredith Kercher in turn accused the media of having portrayed her in a bad light, and creating a false notion of her being guilty despite of her proven innocence, on Saturday, June 15, 2021.
A journalist by profession, who moved to Perugia, Italy, to practice her occupation and for higher studies, found herself in deep troubled waters after she was convicted of being guilty for committing a sexual assault and ultimately murdering her roommate Meredith Kercher in 2007.
Based on Amanda’s true story and inspired by her life journey that grabbed media attention for a decade after her being taken in as a prisoner, director Tom McCarthy is all set to release his film ‘Stillwater’, starring superstar and ‘The Bourne’ film franchise fame Matt Damon in the lead role.
On Thursday, July 29, 2021, Knox called out McCarthy and the production team of ‘Stillwater’, for inappropriately misusing her name to garner media attention and promotion of his upcoming movie.
The lady tweeted, “Does my name belong to me? My face? What about my life? My story? I return to these questions because others continue to profit off my name, face, & story without my consent.”
Does my name belong to me? My face? What about my life? My story? Why does my name refer to events I had no hand in? I return to these questions because others continue to profit off my name, face, & story without my consent. Most recently, the film #STILLWATER.

Here’s how Knox lashed out at McCarthy for using her name which would promote not only his film but along with it her bad image and will end up destroying her reputation, “By fictionalizing away my innocence, my total lack of involvement, by erasing the role of the authorities in my wrongful conviction, McCarthy reinforces an image of me as a guilty and untrustworthy person.”
