An open letter to Lemon Buzz:
I suspect that that you are quite a bit younger than I am. Not that age makes me in anyway better than you, it doesn’t, but it does give me a bit more experience in dealing with disappointment. Please read this with the kind intent I am writing it with.
Are you always so rude or are you just having a bad day? I thought there was a rule that Candians had to be polite at all times except on hockey night, therefore I am surprised by the amount of vitriol being directed by you at Richard Armitage.
May I gently point out that it says right there, on his Twitter account that he is 1) a moody actor, and 2) anti-social. That, I believe, is code for “introvert”. Introverts need down time. Someone who has spent three solid days being interviewed, photographed, and by all accounts, very graciously interacting with his fans might be just a little bit tired after all that social interaction and might not want to stop and chat. Please reflect on that. If you caught him in a moment when signing autographs or taking photos was not on his mind, you were warned.
So you didn’t get an autograph or a “legitimate” photo of yourself with him. You spoke to him, and he spoke back. That makes you far luckier than most of us who will never meet him in any capacity. Personally, if I ever saw him in public being a private person, I would leave him alone and count myself lucky that I saw him at all. All any actor owes me is an excellent performance, and I treasure Richard’s excellent performances.
So back to my first question. Because I don’t know you, I’m going to hope you are actually a nice person who is just having a very bad, and unfortunately, a very public bad day. A nice person would apologize to their target of anger.
Time will tell.
