Whitney Houston's daughter says she should have been cast to play her mother in the upcoming TV movie about her life.

Bobbi Kristina went on a nasty Twitter rant, blasting the movie's director, actress Angela Bassett, for not considering her for the starring role.

"Ha MsAng "bassketcase" has such a damn nerve" Bobbi Kristina tweeted.

"When I win my first Grammy or Oscar... Whichever comes1st, I'll be sure 2shout urname out bitch!"

The tweets were later deleted.

Bassett told Entertainment Weekly, "I did not think about casting her, and probably for a number of reasons. One being that she's not an actress."

Whitney is being played in the movie by newcomer Yaya DaCosta, who got her start as a contestant on America's Next Top Model. She bears a striking resemblance, as she recreates the iconic cover from Whitney's 1987 album. Inside Edition has more here...
