Rachel Williams, the former friend of Anna Sorokin, is suing Netflix for her portrayal on the show, Inventing Anna. Unlike a few of the characters, the producer used Rachel’s real name instead of an alias name. She claims that certain scenes and comments on the show did not occur. It gave the audience the perception that she was only Anna’s friend for the luxury perks such as a $60,000+ hotel stay, lavish hair appointments, and many more. Although Netflix placed a disclaimer at the beginning of every episode that certain events may not be true, Williams received a huge influx of online hate.
