"Girlboss" is a Netflix original series based on the life of Sophia Amoruso, an American Businesswoman. The series follows Sophia's journey as she sets up a business on eBay to sell vintage clothes. "Girlboss" drew much of its inspiration from the book of the same name. The series was released this year in April. The character of Sophia is played by Britt Robinson, best known for her roles in "Tomorrowland", "The Longest Ride" and "The Space Between Us".

'Girlboss' was received poorly from the very beginning

According to Engadget, "Girlboss" had very poor ratings. While Netflix does not release information about the audience of these shows the fact that the platform canceled the show speaks volumes. On Rotten Tomatoes, a popular review site, "Girlboss" received a low rating of 32 percent. This kind of review is rare for a Netflix original comedy and was not the only negative review about the series.

The series has been receiving a lot of criticism for its source of inspiration, Sophia Amoruso. According to The Telegraph, critics have attacked the show condemning it for focusing on a real-life Sophia Amoruso. Amoruso has faced a number of lawsuits over the past few years citing the mistreatment of her employees.

Netflix is becoming more firm about the success rates of their shows. This year has seen the cancellation of "The Get Down", "Sense8" and "Bloodline.".

Ted Sarandos, the chief content officer at Netflix, explained that these shows were not bringing in enough views in return for the amount of money spent on them.

The series was inspired by the life of Sophia Amoruso

Sophia Amoruso has released a statement through social media about the cancellation of the series based on her life. She shared her thoughts through a series of Instagram posts on Sunday.

While she admitted how privileged she felt to work with the cast and creators on "Girlboss", she also expressed relief at being able to dictate her own narrative. The comedy show included elements to her story, which were untrue.

Amoruso also expressed how she found it difficult to be portrayed as a comedic character in the show. She is excited to share the truth of her journey someday and hopes that people will not just take the show as fact.

While Sophia Amoruso's show "Girlboss" has come to an end it does not mean that criticism of the mogul has come to a stop.

"Girlboss" lasted for one season with only 13 episodes in total. As Engadget has expressed, Netflix appears less likely to keep a show with rough edges than before. One can only hope that the cast of the show will not be too badly affected by the fallout.
