The Downside of Social Media

14 Mar

sons-of-anarchy“Charlie Hunnam is a well known actor. In 7 seasons of the television series, Sons of Anarchy, he played a tough biker struggling between living a life in which he seems destined, and wanting to be out of the club living independent with wife and family.

In Pacific Rim, he portrayed a person who operates inside a giant fighting robot, battling in a war with the Kaijus, colossal monsters arising out of the sea.pacific-rim-2

He’s gained a large fan base, but has been reserved in promoting himself through a social media presence. He has found that many of his so called fans have criticized his girl friend, to the point where he felt it was necessary to speak his mind on how disrespectful and untoward these remarks have become.

Normally I don’t reprint long statements or quotes by someone, but I think the things Mr. Hunnam said, are something everyone that interacts through the Internet should take into consideration.

“Dear ladies of social media,

This is a message from Charlie Hunnam. I have no social media so I have asked my good friend and long time supporter Tina Lou to post this message for me.

It has been brought to my attention that there is a group of immature girls posting a large number of hard messages aimed at my long time girlfriend. I would respectfully ask you to stop doing this. She is an intelligent, beautiful, kind person who just tried to live a simple life and has nothing to do with the entertainment industry. If you want to talk shit, talk shit about me, leave her out of it. What is most confusing is that these negative and totally unprovoked attacks appear to be coming from the people who call themselves my fans. Think about the logic of this for a moment. This is a girl I love very much and have spent the last eleven years of my life with and hope to spend the next sixty years. She has been my loyal and supportive partner long before I had any success or money. Why would you attack her out of admiration for me? It makes no sense. Perhaps you might think about spending the time you dedicate on attacking her on improving the quality of your own life, as it is well known that this type of random hatred usually comes from deep rooted personal unhappiness. This about this. Also, I guarantee if you knew her you would feel very silly, as my girlfriend is one of the kindest, nicest, most virtuous people I have ever met. There is literally nothing about her or her behavior that deserves this type of condemnation.

Thank you in advance for respecting this request.

Best Wishes, Charlie Hunnam”

    We sometimes believe our hero silver screen icons are bulletproof, but they’re just people… like you and me.
