Just one more thing, and I’m shutting up on this matter.
Hugh Laurie, long-term TV partner and best friend of Stephen Fry, tweeted a link to a news story. The news story was about Daily Mail and George Clooney. Daily Mail published a fake on Clooney, got caught, had to retract and apologise. Clooney duly rejected the apology and shamed Daily Mail worldwide as the worst kind of tabloid.
Just several days after, Daily Mail published some bullshit on the man known for his firm anti-abuse stance, for his friendship with abuse survivors (pianist James Rhodes is probably the best known example) and for his support of abuse survivors - and guess what, papers like Independent gladly reprinted this crap, and audiences unleashed their pseudo-holy wrath not on papers, but on the man, openly calling him “rape apologist” and “pedo supporter”. “Ordinary” insults aside.
Hugh Laurie tweeted the link to Clooney story right after sick (and sickening) mobs began to tear his friend apart. I wonder why…
Apparently he wasn’t heard.
