Not okay. Never okay.
It doesn’t matter what your feelings are about Ian Hallard’s tweet or Amanda Abbington’s response or any of the shit going on in the Sherlock fandom.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re hurt or feel betrayed by what they said.
It is never okay to send hateful messages to anyone and it is DEFINITELY NOT OKAY TO WISH SOMEONE DEAD.
Please grow up, or at the very least learn some basics to human interaction.
wow wow wow there is a “benedict cumberbatch hate blog”

What are you excited about audiences seeing in ‘The Desolation Of Smaug’?
Oh my god, Sherlock’s face in the second gif when he is talking to John about it being an experiment, and Sherlock’s face in the last gif when John isn’t looking at him. He does look sad when he thinks that John can’t see him.
You don’t have a girlfriend then.
It’s not really my area.
Oh. Oh right. Do you have a boyfriend?
YOU ARE LITERALLY BATTING YOUR EYELASHES AT HIM

“Sherlock’s idea of compliments “[You are] amazing! [You are] fantastic!” are exactly the same compliments John gives him when they first meet - as most people call him a freak, they’re probably the only compliments he’s ever received.
His idea of how to be nice to people is what he’s learned from John.” [x]
CAN WE TAKE A MOMENT AND IMAGINE WHAT AN AWESOME DAD BOROMIR WOULD HAVE MADE
LITERALLY JUST SPAT OUT MY FUCKING SOUP
You know what though
Jim’s little diguises - Rich Brook and Jim from IT - have one thing in common:
They’re both total sweethearts.
They both have a gentle demeanor and seem to care about the women they’re fooling. They’re both anxious around Sherlock. They’re both inoffensive and fuckingadorableohmygod.
They both have a heart.
No one is that good of an actor. The one thing you can’t fake is a heart.
If he was heartless, Molly would be dead. She saw Jim’s face, she was a liability. Why didn’t he kill her? He’d heard all Molly’s stories, he knew she was important to Sherlock, if only a little, so why didn’t he kill her? Why didn’t he threaten her with the gunmen during Reichenbach?
I’ll tell you why. Because Molly is lovely and he cared about her. He purposely excluded her from the threat because he didn’t want to hurt her.
Even during their first meeting at the pool, Jim showed an unusual lack of self restraint “THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE DO!”. His face wasn’t blank, it wasn’t a pokerface like Sherlock’s. He was expressive. He was emotive. He was human. Jim has a heart.
I think that on the roof during Reichenbach, Sherlock realised this. He realised that Jim wasn’t acting.
He realised what Jim really wanted: to not be alone; to find someone just like himself; to find someone not-ordinary. Most of all, he wanted that person to be Sherlock.
Sherlock saw the level of frustration and disappointment and, let’s be honest, sadness on Jim’s face when he thought Sherlock was stupid and ordinary, and when he thought Sherlock would jump to save his friends.
That’s how he beat Jim.
The way he asserts himself on Jim, moving right up into his personal space. Think about it. He never does that. He’s attacked people, usually in self defence, but never anything quite so personal, quite so intimidating.
He’s risking John’s life by doing this. He’s risking the lives of all his friends and he doesn’t care. In those moments, Jim is his primary focus.
But then, listen to his voice, listen to the things he is saying.
Ordinary people have hurt Jim, there’s no doubt about that.
Sherlock is telling Jim that he isn’t ‘one of them’. He isn’t ordinary.
Sherlock isn’t being cruel, he’s being gentle.
We’re just alike, you and I.
And they are just alike, apart from that one little thing that they don’t have in common:
Sherlock is the good guy who doesn’t have a heart, and it’s his biggest weakness.
Jim is the bad guy who does have a heart, and it’s his greatest tragedy.
