Cumberbatch To Star In Dickens Adaptation

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch has issued a creepy, grovelling apology after describing black people as ‘colored’ on US television, saying he is ‘an idiot’ and is ‘devastated to have caused offense’.

The 38-year-old Sherlock star was widely condemned after using the racial term during a debate on the lack of diversity on British screens on the PBS talk show Tavis Smiley last Wednesday.

But on Monday night, he issued an apology for his ‘incorrect’ and ‘offensive’ use of the phrase, saying: ‘I’m devastated to have caused offense by using this outmoded terminology.

‘I offer my sincere apologies. I make no excuse for my being an idiot and know the damage is done.

What a spineless creep.If he’s had any balls he would have told his critics to fuck off. What we have to remember is there’s not a single word in the English dictionary that African Americans cannot find racially offensive when it is spoken by a person of European descent.

But let’s get something straight. Ever since men first stood erect in Africa or central Asia or Indonesia, no human being has ever been black. And in that period no human being have ever been white either.

Now if African Americans would kindly make up their minds how they want us to refer to them and agree to stick with it for a respectable period of time, we can get on with important things, like organising a new version of Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield and casting that arse licking creep Cumberbatch as Uriah Heep.
