Relativity's CEO questioned Disney's deal for Maker even though he wanted to buy the company
One week, Relativity wants to buy Maker Studios. The next week, the company's CEO says Maker has a problem.

Here's what Relativity had to say:
“Both Relativity and Maker share a commitment to challenging the status quo, breaking down old models that don't work and inventing new ones that do. We will continue to aggressively explore future opportunities that align with our strategy to accelerate digital content creation and distribution.”
