Hayley Williams Helps Frances Bean Cobain Shade Haters After 'Montage of Heck' Premiere
Frances Bean Cobain was on hand at the April 21 premiere of the Kurt Cobain documentary Montage of Heck, where she wowed the crowd with an unexpected speech. Even when the haters started hating, Frances held her own.
After some Internet tabloids criticized her physical appearance at the Egyptian Theatre premiere, Cobain and some supportive friends shot them down.

And later, now-solo former My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way chimed in:
Cobain, an executive producer of the Kurt doc, addressed the L.A. crowd and applauded director Brett Morgen. "After seeing it, I thought I could only watch it once. But the film that [Morgen] made -- I didn't know Kurt, but he would be exceptionally proud of it. It touches some dark subjects, but it provides a basic understanding of who he was as a human, and that's been lost."
Frances Bean wasn't quite two years old when her father committed suicide in 1994. The doc, which premieres May 4 on HBO, features never-before-seen home movies and archival footage to tell Kurt Cobain's story.
