GET IN THE TARDIS IT’S TIME TO STOP RATTIGAN

I FUCKING HATE AMERICANS

I don’t think I would mind as much if Sherlock were also a girl. And Watson wasn’t Asian. THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO BE FUCKING ENGLISH. IT’S A FUCKING ENGLISH STORY STOP PUTTING YOUR SLIMY AMERICAN FINGERS INTO EVERYTHING.

I vote for a boycott.

A Cumberboycott, if need be.

I HATE AMERICANS TOO LOOK AT WHAT THEY DID WTF

I don’t think I would mind as much if Sherlock were also a girl.  And Watson wasn’t a mouse.  THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO BE HUMAN!!!!  IT’S A HUMAN STORY STOP PUTTING YOUR SLIMY AMERICAN MOUSE FINGERS INTO EVERYTHING.

We need to boycott this, Cumberbunnies.

It’s not like there are 250 other depictions of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson featuring them as two white British dudes.  Making Sherlock Holmes a mouse is almost as bad as casting Watson as an Asian American woman; it is so dreadfully terrible.  Little British boys will never have the opportunity to see themselves reflected in the sidekick character of Watson if they see The Great Mouse Detective.

IT’S TIME TO PLAY THE WORLD’S TINIEST VIOLIN U GAIS
