This is a storm in a teacup. I have no idea what the
comments were that forced him to post this. I am sure they must have
been pretty offensive to bring forth this kind of reaction from him. I
think we all need to calm down and realize that he was probably angry
when he wrote this and actions done in anger often have unintended
One has to be very careful with the wording
because it is always open to
misinterpretation. Let us remember that he may not have realized the
implications of the hidden unintended meanings in his letter. English is a funny language in that way
choice of the word fans is probably not the right one. He should have addressed just
that particular section of his fans who he has a problem with. He should
also have gone on to thank the other section who appreciate his work
and stay out of his personal life. That would have made this a lot more
acceptable. It would have been clear that he was targeting the fans who
are hell bent on creating trouble.
Also the use of the word stray
is being misinterpreted. If you look at it in context you can see that
he was comparing his own dog - Dexter to some stray dog in some serial.
Again the use of the word "stray" was probably a little too much - he
could have gone for a less controversial word. My guess is that people
also called his dog ugly and he was upset about that too.
have gone a tad overboard but hey he was angry plus anything written
down or even things we say are open to misinterpretation. That is the
beauty of the English language.
Should he have gotten someone to read before he posted - absolutely.
But come on cut the guy a little slack.
now if he is not addressing you (as in if you were not among the people
who posted things in his blog) just ignore it. Why do you want to spoil
your day over what person X said to person Y because he was ticked
Relax. I hope he clears this up purely for his sake.
reaction, I know he is not referring to me, so I am just going to forget
I do not care about what an actor does or does not do on his own time. I
have no inclination to know anything about an actor's personal life
because I believe that they are human and deserve their space like
anyone else. This is my personal opinion and I do not expect others to
think the same way. All I expect from GC is that he does a good job as
Maan in GHSP. Beyond that I have no interest in any of his off-screen
My two cents. Sorry if I hurt anyone's sentiments. Edited by liv2laugh - 12 years ago
