apparently martin freeman’s homophobic and racist now
Apparently he said some things in interviews (around four years ago) that were well-intended, but ultimately extremely insensitive about the struggles queer people go through. He said that there are a lot of gay people or ‘poofters’ in showbusiness, especially Hollywood and they should just come out of the closet because ‘nobody cares that they’re gay, I don’t care that they’re gay’ or ‘someone has to stand up and be counted’.
It’s very… no straight person has the right to tell anyone when to come out of the closet, especially when what he said is not only wrong, but very ignorant. Coming out of the closet for someone in showbusiness usually means the end of their career, if not ostracisation from Hollywood altogether.
Hi! First, thank you very much for the compliment, that particular mashup is a favourite of mine =D As for the quote, it’s actually an original by me. All of my A Softer World art can be differentiated between ‘fanart by’ or ‘remixed by’ in the bottom right hand corner. If it’s remix then it’s from the original ASW. If it’s fanart then it’s either original quote (by me) or lyrics from a song (in which case the artist will be credited in the tags). You might have also seen a variation of this quote in one of my kink meme fills here. Thanks for the ask! =DDDDD
