Kim Cattrall calls out Sarah Jessica Parker for ‘exploiting’ brother’s death

Canadian-raised actress Kim Cattrall has a message for her Sex and the City co-star, Sarah Jessica Parker: Spare me your sympathy.

In an Instagram post Saturday, Cattrall lashed out after Parker expressed her condolences over the death of Cattrall’s brother, Chris.

“Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now,” Cattrall wrote. “Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”

Cattrall included a link to a New York Post story about the so-called “mean-girls culture” that pervaded the HBO show and two follow-up movies.

On Tuesday, Cattrall had posted a thank-you message to fans, friends and her colleagues from Sex and the City for their support in the days since her brother’s death.

Chris Cattrall, 55, was found dead on his rural property in Lacombe last week. Police say his death is not being considered suspicious.
