How do you report a Mini-Bio? There is a second Mini-Bio for Faye Dunaway that appears disrespectful

The second mini-bio is extremely negative in representing this actor's body of work:
Faye Dunaway was one of the hottest actresses in the 1970s playing neurotic, highly driven women with sex appeal. Life in the 1990s has not been as good. In a much-publicized incident, she was dropped as the lead in the Broadway musical "Sunset Boulevard", and her attempt at starring in a television comedy was an unmitigated bomb.

There is nothing that violates IMDb policy in the two bios

Hi Ed, appreciate the response; guess I'm not that familiar with IMDB mini-bios.
Always thought they were like wikipedia.....any negatives, proportionate to the actor's body of work. As this is a highly acclaimed actor, didn't think a recent end of career event should comprise most of this second bio.
Thanks for resolving my question/concern.

You can write a third bio yourself.
Give it a go.
It can be fun.
I have only done about 10 or 11 myself.
Try it!
Cheers

Hi Dylan -

Just chiming in here to clarify that our preference is to list a single biography per name page, so it's likely that a submitting a third Bio would not be accepted, instead we prefer that you submit updates to the existing Bio.

If you have modifications that you feel are necessary to Ms. Dunaway's Bio, or if you are aware of inappropriate or incorrect information in a Bio, submit the applicable updates to the existing Bio and our editors will take a look.  For detailed instructions on how to modify Bios, please see the following guide: https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/names-biographical-data/how-can-i-delete-or-update-my-bio...#

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for the clarification; agreed. Definitely, had no intention of creating a third Bio.
In fact, I thought it was peculiar to have even a second Bio. (due to the first part being deprecatory and the second focusing just on a very recent news item)
I use IMDB and Wikipedia for film info. Always assumed that they both work the same way...one bio, with approval needed to update. Not sure if this second bio was actually vetted...since it is for a major actor. There should be an approval even when contributors are certain that all facts are correct.
I appreciate your quality response...thanks again.

The shorter bio by Ray Hamel was written many years ago. Oddly, it looks like it was replaced on the page by another bio years ago, but has returned. Since there is another, recent and comprehensive bio, perhaps the shorter one could be removed.
