"Would you rather go on a date with a dwarf, a hobbit or an elf?" (x) aka, the one where Martin realises he should stop talking. (1)
Did Martin say something that wasn’t okay? Yes, he did.
Does this make him a bad person? No, it does not.
Everybody fucks up sometimes. Everybody says something wrong from time to time, but it doesn’t make them a bad person. I am sure Martin knows he said something that wasn’t okay, because rape jokes aren’t funny. Not in the least. Heck, he even says “maybe I should stop talking”, realising he’s crossed a line.
Martin Freeman doesn’t go around and make rape jokes all the time, in fact, I think this is a first
and that it also will be a last.So maybe, just maybe, instead of causing an unnecesseray shitstorm that brands Martin as a horrible human being, let’s agree that what he says wasn’t okay and that he should probably apologise for it.
You all just seriously need to shut the fuck up about this already. If you were truly a fan of his, then you know he’s just a person who speaks out of their ass at times. He made a mistake and realized. Go off on him if he makes a rape joke intentionally for laughs.
