Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

I'll tell you what double standards is: If Amanda is not afraid here that one of those days her children might google her and find this!

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

But that's her decision, making choices for her children...
It's quite a different matter. other people posting sexual pictures involving a facial image of their father.

And this is their mother posting naughty posts. About someone not even around. That's better?

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

It's adult humour...whether or not it should be on this social media is really up to Twitter to decide.
I am certain Amanda and Simon are both close enough to Benedict to know he won't mind.

Oh, so now Twitter is responsible for the stuff people are tweeting...? Great.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Huh? She should be close enough to Martin to know, that he didn't mind Johnlocky stuff, at least the more artificial stuff.
Amanda can have quite an explicit and dirty humour if it fits her purposes but not if it doesn't
Not only double but multiple standards if you ask me.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Also, I'm not sure they are "close friends"?
Not the way Martin described their relationship; he put it more in terms of them being colleagues who got on well when working together but didn't "hang out" (which caused another Twitter outcry. If I remember correctly!)
My issue is that BC isn't on Twitter, so he's not in on the joke - it's only "banter" when the person on the receiving end of it is aware that it's happening, surely?
Ah well, maybe I'm just being grumpy..

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

As for the "close friends" - the funny thing is that those who really seem to be close friends with Benedict like Adam Ackland and James Rhodes usually do not engage in that kind of "fun".

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Well various friends behave differently...
Anyhow, I found the conversation amusing.
We don't know if anybody will have shown it to BC or if he found it funny.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Well, he laughed about "bismarking" in the interview with Tom Hardy (for Stuart:A Life Backwards) - if he was offended it didn't show.  But I suppose his friends know better than I do!  Hopefully, it won't bother him.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

She's punning on the names of other Star Trek movies:

Insurrection (ep IX)
The Search for SPOCK (ep III)
The Final Frontier (ep VI)

It's hilarious! She's a smart cookie. And I'm sure those comments are right up Simon's alley too.

I would agree with you that filming three eps of Sherlock with Ben and Martin means that she probably has a pretty good handle on BC's sense of humor. I've seen loads of places where Martin has made comments that were 'dirty' or 'profane'. He likes to shoot the bird in photos too.

It was all in good fun.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Snootie,I'm perfectly aware that she refers to the said Star Trek Movies, but if it's good taste to do so on someone else's expenses, we will have to agree to disagree. And I stick with my opinion that I see double standards here when I consider her comments on johnlocky stuff. Bit not good. But I guess everything has been said in this thread.

Possibly so.
There may also be a plethora of views on double standards,

I guess I thought you were referring to other board commenters here when referring to the double and multiple standards. That was my misinterpretation of your comment then.

Thank you for clarifying, snootie. It was indeed Amanda's double standards I was referring to, considering earlier comments of hers in interviews. Don't like it.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Ok, so these are  2 friends joking about a mutual friend.
They know him better than any of us and may even share the joke with him...
Is this worse than people who don't know him at all, squeeing about him, or cretaing sexual art using his image?

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

BB, I'm so sorry for being a pain at this, but where. is.the.difference?? She complained about the Johnlock fan art in respect to her children and I thought then " ok, I'm a mother myself, you might have a point there."
Buuut
Considering the choice of words or the level of sexual harassment if you wish to call it like that is by no means less or better. I wouldn't want my children to google their mother and find posts like that as little as the explicit fan art using Martins face. But in this case she takes it for a good laugh.
