Hobbit Star Advocates Rape On TV! See The Desolation Of Martin Freeman HERE!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsFilm FlickersSad Sad

This is just horrible!!!

The world is praising Martin Freeman's performance as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, but absolutely no one is praising the putrid joke he made during a recent interview!

The Sherlock sat with a Danish TV reporter and stuck his hairy hobbit foot all the way down his own mouth!

When the reporter tossed the accomplished actor a softball about whether he'd rather date an elf, hobbit, or dwarf, Martin thought it would be appropriate to make a joke about rape!!!

Ch-ch-check out the video (above)!

Rape is one of the most seriously heinous crimes ever and it's hard enough for victims to find the courage to come forward already!

We definitely don't need people making horribly unacceptable jokes like this! And, sorry, prefacing your tasteless joke with "some people might get mad, but…" does not make it any better!

Hopefully The Hobbit star does the right thing and apologizes to everyone he offended!

    Gee Perez, you find this offensive, but you thought Robin Thicke's rape song was great. Maybe this guy should have put his joke to a Marvin Gaye song and had naked girls around him when he said it - would that make it ok?

  2. 2

    oh come on!!!! He's talking about a hobbit drugging an elf. It's total silliness. STFU!!! It's not talking about real rape. He even acknowledged that his comment could be misconstrued. Take this post down. It's so dumb.

    well that was hardly offensive, I have found more offending things in a outfit worn by lady gaga then by that comment…Martin Freemen forever

    I have to agree with what's been said so far…Also, he realized what he said was stupid and his sarcastic wit went a bit too dry.
    Calm down…

    You know what else is considered horribly offensive?
    People like you who make fun of the mentally ill, like Amanda Bynes.
    Or constantly harasses someone you're no longer friends with and send her a picture of Madonna holding a gun to her head while she's in a wheelchair.
    Or posting a nude picture of an underage Miley Cyrus.
    Or says things like "it should have been Britney," when Heath Ledger died.
    Or calling Adam Sandler's child "ugly."
    Or yesterday when you were called a pedophile and you threw Dustin Lance Black under the bus by saying he never gets called a pedophile for dating Tom Daley. You didn't have to include his name at all.
    Or constantly making sexual remarks towards celebrities. Like Heather Morris and Zac Efron. You know that is harassment, right?

    Don't even try to act like you are so innocent. What Martin Freeman said was kind of shitty, but you are the king of being an insensitive bully.

    This guy actually says he would use drugs to control the Elf or Dwarf and Rick Ross did the same thing in one of his songs saying he would drug a woman's drink. Robin Thick has never said that. But still you want to call his song rapey.

    Sure, the joke was in a bit of poor taste, but people need to grow up and learn how not to get offended about every little thing other people say. They are just words…in this case they are words that are not directed at anyone in particular. Bad taste, slightly, but come on Perez, pick your battles.

    Take the stick out of your arse.

    what is wrong with you, Perez? stupid comments get made by celebrities every day. this was clearly a junket-overload response. have you seen all the videos of the celebs from this movie promo tour? and while you're at it why don't you scan the stupid questions the so-called journalists are asking? seriously. as the bloke said previously, get the stick out of your arse.

  11. Ryn says – reply to this


    i'm more offended by Perez's "music"

  12. Fiderian says – reply to this


    The joke was in very poor taste… But your headline is very misleading // actual slander, seeing as he never "advocated" rape in the interview. Stop caring so much about publicity and think about the ramifications of what you write.


  13. bullshit says – reply to this


    fix your stupid headline. you are just trying to get readers. he is not advocating rape or making light of it.

  14. 14

    It was a joke about a mythical creature. Martin seems like a funny and nice guy. Get off your high horse. You make crude comments about people all the time. Geeze!

  15. Matt says – reply to this


    I find this headline more offensive than the comment.

    "Rape is one of the most seriously heinous crimes ever"

    LOL, what a description!! Thank you for the clarification.

    He wasn't 'advocating rape', but I guess it's no use to try and make you use your brain - you don't have one.

    my roomate's mother makes $64/hr on the computer. She has been without work for 6 months but last month her paycheck was $16887 just working on the computer for a few hours. visit this site right here… w­ww.Bu­zz19.c­om

    People these days are offended by the littlest things. And besides, you can hardly say anything about offensive when you were praising Robin Thicke for his idiotic music. Not to mention, most of the people offended by this probably watch shows like Family Guy, which is ALWAYS making jokes FAR WORSE than this. People need to relax a little bit.

  19. Sammie says – reply to this


    Cute. You're one to talk about "offensive" after what you tweeted to Dylan Sprouse. You basically sexually harassed him. That's far worse than what this guy said. Get over yourself, babe.

  20. Sammie says – reply to this


    Re: sick_girl – Don't forget what he said to Dylan Sprouse after his nudes were leaked!

    "advocate"? You morons really need to learn the definitions of words. Making a rape joke doesn't mean you advocate rape or support rape..morons

  22. Lisa says – reply to this


    Way to try to grab those headlines, Perez. No wonder people are leaving your site in droves.

  23. Ross says – reply to this


    Whatever else happens on this website, I hate to break it to all the above but making rape jokes IS advocating rape.

    There's loads of academic writing on the subject and it's actually fascinating. Essentially, it all boils down to the fact that he's saying if someone doesn't want to sleep with you, that's OK you can do it anyway!

    To him it may be a joke and he would never actually consider doing it. However the problem with 'jokes' like these is that somewhere, someone will have heard the joke and felt validated.

    That's the real issue: the validation of a rapist's point of view.

    DITTO to what everyone has basically said for me already

    1) Hes talking about fictional characters for gods sake
    2) You need a dictionary because he did not ADVOCATE rape, it was a crap joke which he obviously knew would be taken the wrong way which is why he stopped talking
    3) Its true Perez, you make fun of people for "serious" issues such as mental illness and addiction, yet just because this joke offends you, its ok to unfairly put a false headline in an attempt to fuck up Martins reputation (hes a lovely guy)
    4) Dont even get me started on Robin Thicke, that was the rapiest rape song that ever raped AND YOU LOVED IT
    5) The poor guy has to sit in interviews all day and get asked the same shitty questions by some asshole interviewer, excuse him if he trys to lighten his mood by making a joke
    6) If anyone needs to apologise its YOU and YOUR MISLEADING SHITTY HEADLINES

    For Heaven's Sake -Grow up the lot of you!
    IT IS A JOKE ABOUT FICTIONAL CHARACTERS!! I'm going to be very controversial now and point out that for a Hobbit & an Elf to get together would probably require a stepladder at the very least if not climbing ropes! I'll probably be branded as offensive to short people now! Don't be so childish - this was actually funny too which removes it far away from the extremely offensive song lyrics discussed and an awful lot of other things too - GET A LIFE!

    Re: jemma
    If you watch in more detail he was talking about the drugs to make them fall over because they are so much taller than a Hobbit - Nobody even mentioned sex!!!!!

  27. Suzie says – reply to this


    well thanks a fucking lot for trying to ruin his life over one stupid joke!

  28. LAB says – reply to this


    It was a joke that landed with a thud, in the context of the question Martin was asked. Why sensationalize it with a misleading headline that is way beyond what was said? And this is coming from someone who's been through that.
