This is my first post, but I thought this was important and wanted to see if we could all rally behind Rob.
A ridiculous blogger for the SF Gate has posted the most inane article regarding a "statement" Rob made in his Details interview. I am sure you all know what I am talking about; the "Negro" comment that Rob supposedly made.
I have read, and reread, this passage from the Details article;
Jenny Lumet: Rob, did you know that every time you say actor or acting you lower your voice to a whisper?
Robert Pattinson: He's genuinely startled. "I do?"
Jenny Lumet:Yes, so quietly it's like you're saying Negro.
Robert Pattinson: He laughs, lightens up. "What if we were 'acting' like 'Negroes'? Then we'd be f***ed we couldn't hear anything. . . ."
I know, and you know, that Rob did not mean anything negative or hurtful in this exchange, and it lends a whole different light to the passage when you realize that the write is actually part black.
The blogger who wrte the article in the SF Gate is "Zennie62," and he has named his article
Unfortunately this article is getting a lot of attention online. As I said, I hope we can all rally behind Rob and post our opinions about this hack on the comments section of his article and send our opinions to his superiors. On one hand I dont want to give this person any more attention, but on the other hand, this is so completely horrible and sickening the blogger needs to be held accountable. I posted the link to the article for your review...
