Bobbi Kristina is not happy about the upcoming Lifetime movie about her mother's life.

Whitney Houston's daughter took to Twitter to vent her frustrations about the soon-to-be filmed project directed by Angela Bassett.

So why was Bobbi so flustered in the first place?

Well, Bassett gave an interview about the highly anticipated movie to Entertainment Weekly and addressed why she never even thought twice about having Bobbi play the lead role.

"I did not think about casting her. And probably for a number of reasons, you know. One being that she's not an actress. I know she's acted here and there. I know she's been on their family's reality show, but she's not an actress and acting is a craft," she explained.

"It's an attempt to illuminate the complexities of human behavior and life. And this is a very fast-paced schedule; we have just 21 days to tell this story. It's more than just saying lines and turning the light on. You have to drive the story—there's a technical aspect."

And you know Bobbi wasn't going to take well…

The 21-year-old responded by tweeting, "Ha MsAng "bassketcase" has such a damn nerve my lord, at least the world doesn't mistake me for the wrong sex…she has some #XtraEquipment."

She added, "When I win my first Grammy or Oscar, *Shrugs* hmm whichever comes 1st, I'll be sure 2shout URname out b-tch! Hah UrTestResults = Male. Lmao."

Good times, right?

Meanwhile, earlier this month it was announced that former America's Next Top Model contestant Yaya DeCosta was cast to play the Grammy winner in the future biopic.

DeCosta began working as a child actor and had a recurring role on All My Children as well as Ugly Betty.

She also has been in hit films such as Lee Daniels' The Butler and Tron: Legacy.
