Benedict Cumberbatch's Gay Rights Campaign Won't Be Supported By Kate Middleton & Prince William

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman get into costume to film their hit BBC series Sherlock over the weekend in Bristol, England.

The 38-year-old Oscar nominee recently penned an an open letter petitioning the U.K. government to give a pardon to some 49,000 homosexuals who were treated prosecuted for being gay by the British government several decades ago.

In 2009, the British government gave Alan Turing an “unequivocal apology” for his mistreatment (Benedict portrays Alan in The Imitation Game). Unfortunately, according to The Telegraph, Prince William and Kate Middleton have rejected Benedict‘s plea for his gay rights campaign in the UK and a spokesperson said since it is a matter for the government that they could not comment.

    I am a fan of BC’s acting, and it’s wonderful that he has a few causes that he believes in. In saying that, however, I also feel BC is starting to get a little too big for his britches. Fame is going to this man’s head, unfortunately.

    Kate and William did the right thing. The royals are forbidden to interfere with government business. Folks should make an effort to know what they’re talking about before they jump to knee-jerk conclusions.

    Also, how arrogant is it of BC or anyone else to assume that everyone should share their passion for a cause?
