    Drummer Roger Taylor released solo albums “Fun in Space” and “Stranger Frontier” in 1981 and 1984, respectively, both of which came out before Mercury’s first solo effort, “Mr. Bad Guy” in 1985. The movie leads viewers to believe it was Mercury who wanted to go solo [url=http://www.buyusacigarettes.com]Newport 100's soft pack cigarettes - Cheap Cigarettes Online Sale Shop[/url] and caused friction among the band, although Taylor had already made the same move twice. Taylor is played by Ben Hardy in the film and is made to appear as Mercury’s biggest adversary in the group. When Mercury announces his solo plans, Taylor scoffs at the idea, which is ironic given what went down in real life.
    The second major factual inaccuracy is the film’s handling of Mercury’s HIV diagnosis. In the film, Mercury learns he is sick shortly before the band reunites for Live Aid. The script has Mercury use his diagnosis to cement the band’s reformation, but in reality Mercury most likely did not even know he had the disease before Live Aid. Queen’s Live Aid performance took place in 1985, and by all accounts Mercury wasn’t diagnosed with HIV until April 1987. The movie’s altering of history here has been criticized by press.
    “I’ve never seen a film distort its facts in such a punitive way. It’s like the movie wants to punish Freddie Mercury,” wrote UPROXX’s Mike Ryan. “Mercury’s tragic death from AIDS was a defining moment in the early ’90s fight for AIDS awareness. To now retcon his illness [url=http://www.buyusacigarettes.com]2018 Wholesale Newport And Marlborl Cigarettes USA[/url] into his Live Aid performance seems flippant and cruel.”
    In a piece entitled “‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Is an Insult to Freddie Mercury,” Daily Beast writer Kevin Fallon says the film’s handling of Mercury’s HIV diagnosis is “a cruel and manipulative version of tragedy porn that is inaccurate and perpetuates the trope of AIDS as punishment for gay promiscuity.”
    “It’s inexplicably perverse that the movie retcons Mercury’s HIV diagnosis as the band’s motivation for Live Aid,” IndieWire’s own David Ehrlich added in his review. “It’s insulting to see the lengths to which this film tries to capture the melodrama of Queen’s music, and humiliating to see the lengths by which it fails.”
