Quote:Also, in the case of Barrowman, it would have happened in 2005, 15 years ago. In 2008, he had already apologised for a similar incident:“I apologise for any offence I have caused. I was joining in the light-hearted and fun banter of the show and went too far. I was wrong to do this and it will never happen again.”
I think he is likely very aware today that that sort of behaviour wouldn't fly. In 2005 things were a little less histrionic than they are today, notably with the arrival of social media and witch-hunts becoming more prevailant, and Barrowman has always been a reflection of his Captain Jack persona in that both are larger than life figures who have 'licence' to be a little outrageous and, well, be who they are...
we also have to remember, and not saying to excuse bad behavior, that we have to view this in the context of the times, and not read today views back into it!
