Patrick Stewart had a fun day in the “Multimedia-verse” today as he sparked some “controversy” with this Tweet;
How could the Captain not have ever had pizza in all his 73 years! After a flurry of “really” and ” Oh my God, you haven’t tried pizza before?”, Steward quickly posted a follow up Tweet to clear the air regarding the “slice” comment, along with his choice of hockey hat, and tiny soda;
All this fun and commotion didn’t go unnoticed as long time friend and notoriously funny Tweeter Brent Spiner weighed in on the conversation;
What struck me and tugged at my heart strings was a video posted from Comicpalooza 2013 posted by Oswald Vinueza of a question by Heather Skye.
“This was my question to Sir Patrick Stewart at Comicpalooza 2013. I wanted to thank Patrick Stewart for his speech at Amnesty International it personally help me put a name to the abuse, sexual abuse in my case, I had experienced in the past. He responded very passionately and the last thing I thought I would get at was a heartfelt hug.
When he embraced me he told me “You never have to go through that again, you’re safe now”. I just kept thanking him. I hope everyone who needs help in abusive or violent situations has the courage to do so. There are people willing and ready to help you.”
