I am literally screaming right now. I HATE THIS SO MUCH.
First off, the “fangirl” is so obviously supposed to be fat, ugly, and look like she doesn’t take care of herself. She is SUPPOSED to look stupid, dirty, and ugly as all hell. She was CHOSEN to be that way. This pisses me off, because it’s a huge stereotype. Oh yeah, we spend all our time hunting down a stupid deerstalker and (NOT EVEN THE RIGHT) jacket/coat/shawl thing.
Secondly, this is a huge and major insult to Benedict Cumberbatch. It is literally saying, “Benedict, your fans are all ugly and fat!” This. Just. No.
Thirdly, it shows that we OBVIOUSLY wear clothes like that and ask the stupidest questions just to bring attention to ourselves. WHY DO WE SPEND SO MUCH TIME ONLINE/INSIDE? Cause we know things you couldn’t imagine. We know about humanity, and we fear it. We have social issues. We have fears and anxiety, alongside depression and do self harm. (Another stereotype, sorry. Just trying to make a point on why.)
This is so stupid, stereotypical, harsh, and just right out idiotic that this show needs to go die in a hole. Or, at least, the writer.
