People try to patronise Freddie fans, by telling us he was not perfect and pointing out the times he hurt people…we know that, we know he had a period of being out of control, we know he cheated on people.
We are aware he had flaws, but we love him anyway. All of us will hurt someone one day and do something arsehole-ish. He was no different. But people will love us at some point too.
Some Tumblr users have a go at others for trying to defend Freddie/understand his actions and at the same time, state they have the right to criticise him for hurting people.
None of us quite know why he did what he did - none of us know the whole story. But he was a fundamentally decent man, and we should appreciate the good things he has done musically, his cuteness and the good things he did that far outweigh the bad.
Let’s be positive yeah. You can’t scold a dead man after all. No need to tell us he was a human who made twattish mistakes. We are fully aware, thank you! None of us will live life as a paragon of virtue…
Let Tumblr users love and fantasise about him as much as they want and don’t piss on their love of Freddie.
