Many made their displeasure apparent on Twitter. Some were amazed to see her in the film, others couldn't she was given such a raw deal for her maiden Hollywood film.

The helicopter which Tig Notaro's character flew in the film got into an accident and a side of it was damaged. It is implied that Geeta who sat in the front seat died in the same. Screenrant believes the reason it wasn't kept in the movie was that Notaro wasn't the original actor cast in the role. It was Chris D'Elia. But a sexual misconduct allegation later, he was replaced by Tig and her shots were all done on Green screen. They were later jammed with the other characters through CGI. It is a possibility that all scenes of Huma in the helicopter may have had D'Elia in the frame and had to be cut out.
