Shia LaBeouf was removed from the Netflix Awards FYC, a list of works highlighted by the platform during awards season, for his work on Piece Of A Woman. He also disappeared from the promotional campaign for the film, in which he stars alongside Vanessa Kirby. If the streaming giant had highlighted the actor's work, the accusations of violence and physical and mental abuse brought against him by his ex FKA Twigs pushed the SVOD giant to support only Vanessa Kirby.

The actor was also removed from the synopsis of the film, and all images of the page presentation of the movie on which it appeared to have been removed, as noted in People.
