Review mischaracterizing a movie by factual error

There is a review about the movie "Wind River" that tries to make the impression as if the film was condescending and unjust towards native Americans. The reviewer even makes a claim that is factually wrong. He says that the murderer in the story is revealed to be an Indian which is clearly not the case. The victim is a native American woman and the murderer is a white guy. I wanted to contact the reviewer directly, but it seems that there is no possibility to do that. Is there anything I can or that needs to be done about it? I found nothing in the guidelines that prohibits making false statements about a movie's plot. (The reviewer's name is Sophoclaw)

It says it's "solved". Can I have an update how it was solved?
