    It was one of the most eagerly anticipated debuts at SXSW 2015 -- the new Steve Jobs documentary from acclaimed filmmaker Alex Gibney.

    But following its epic splash at SXSW, the backlash against the Oscar winning filmmaker has been substantial, particularly among friends and former colleagues of Jobs who take umbrage with the way Jobs was portrayed.

    Chief among those offended is Apple's current chief of software and services, Eddy Cue. An executive who doesn't tweet very often turned to social media to express his displeasure with what he considers to be an unfair portrayal of his late friend and former explorer.

    "Very disappointed in SJ:Man in the Machine," Cue Tweeted. "An inaccurate and mean-spirited view of my friend. It's not a reflection of the Steve I knew."

    Want to know the real Steve Jobs? Cue said the opportunity to do so is at hand.

    "Best portrayal is about to be released - Becoming Steve Jobs (book). Well done and first to get it right," the exec subsequently tweeted.
