Stephen Fry Watch: Big Mouth Strikes Again

“There are many great plays which contain rapes, and the word rape now is even considered a rape. They’re terrible things and they have to be thought about, clearly, but if you say you can’t watch this play, you can’t watch Titus Andronicus, you can’t read it in an English class, or you can’t watch Macbeth because it’s got children being killed in it, it might trigger something when you were young that upset you once, because uncle touched you in a nasty place, well I’m sorry,.”

“It’s a great shame and we’re all very sorry that your uncle touched you in that nasty place – you get some of my sympathy – but your self pity gets none of my sympathy.” ...

Stephen Fry in an American TV interview.

After the fan was covered in elephant dung, Mr Fry did the obligatory 'I apologise unreservedly' thing.

Silly, cause he's kinda right.
