Here’s the thing.
As much as I like Benedict Cumberbatch, I’m not one to white-knight him when he does something wrong. In fact, I don’t really white-knight him at all. I realize that he’s a person with flaws and don’t act like he’s a fucking god.
That being said, I’m aware that not everyone is a fan of him. People have their reasons for disliking him, and whether they make them private or public is their own business. After that autism thing last month, a lot of people expressed their distaste for him, and that is their choice, and we should respect that. He’s not perfect.
However, what I will not tolerate is people bashing his word based on a shady British article, with words of his being taken out of context. Hate the man all you want, but don’t put words in his mouth.
So let me decipher what Benedict was saying about this whole matter.
Benedict is tired of being typecast as rich white boys. Benedict would rather live in America if it meant he could have some more variety in his acting roles.
Benedict is not complaining about his privilege.
Benedict is not hating on the “posh” lifestyle.
Benedict is not “posh bashing.” What the fuck does that even mean?
He is an actor, and he was talking about acting.
There, I hope that was helpful, you little bastards! ♥
edit: Also, you are not cool for hating a celebrity! At all! That pretty much puts you in the same rung as Justin Bieber haters! Please stop tagging your hate uguu~~
